Can you tell I have goat cheese in the fridge?  A healthy yummy meatloaf.  Easy to make and easy to eat.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium shallot chopped
1 clove garlic chopped
1 handful parsley chopped
2 cups arugula
2 roma tomatoes cubed
1 tsp salt
1.25 lb ground turkey
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 slice white bread
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp honey
4 oz goat cheese
In a saute pan over medium high heat, heat olive oil.  Cook shallots and garlic until fragrant and soft about 3 minutes.  Add parsley and tomatoes, cook until tomatoes begin to wilt, about 3 minutes.  Add arugula and salt and wilt arugula.   Set aside and allow to cool.
Preheat oven to 375.  Soak bread with milk.  In a medium bowl add turkey, egg, soaked bread, salt, honey and mustard.  Combine with hands until bread is evenly distributed.  Add vegetable mixture and mix throughout.  Gently crumble in cheese and combine.
Put mixutre in loaf pan and cover with foil.  Bake for about 30 minutes.  Remove foil and allow meatloaf to brown, about another 20 minutes.   Allow to rest for about 30 minutes before eating.
