This is a twist on a classic meatloaf. The mushrooms lighten up the meatloaf adding meaty flavor, while the spinach adds color and nutrients to the mix. This can be served a main dish, or you can make mini meat loaves as an appetizer. This dish can be easily doubled and prepared ahead and frozen either cooked or uncooked.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or 350 degrees F with convection.
Put mushrooms, onions and garlic in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process until it is a paste-like consistency.
Heat oil on medium heat in large frying pan. Add mushroom mixture and cook, stirring often until starting to brown, about 7-10 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp salt and remove from heat. Allow to come to room temperature.
In a large bowl, combine spinach, mushroom mixture, egg, breadcrumbs, onion soup mix and remaining salt and pepper, mix well. Add chopped meat, mix gently until just combined.
Line a baking dish with parchment paper. Form a loaf with the meat mixture in the center of the pan.
Bake for 45-50 minutes in the center of the oven. Remove from oven and allow meatloaf to rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Is onion soup mix required? It is not listed in ingredient list. It is mentioned in directions.
Hi, I am going to look into that for you. But, no it is not required. You can leave it out or put onion powder instead.
