Skinny Giada’s Turkey Goat Cheese Meatloaf

July 22, 2011

I’ve made it before, and I’ll make it again, by-golly. Because it’s that good and it’s that easy and it’s that pretty.

It’s filled with gooey wonder. It’s filled with bursts of color. It’s topped with baked crispy patches of crunch…

Oh how I love baked crispy patches of crunch!

I also love my protein. And this baby is filled with protein. Lean, muscle-growing, protein. My muscles tell me, on many occasion, they would like protein fed to them. So I obey.

Plus, that skinny b… err, woman… came up with the recipe. I just modified it. And doubled it. I was feeding 4 hungry people… and we wanted many leftovers.

This has all sorts of goodness going on!

Well, that’s a wrap up for What Runs Lori on this fabulous Friday. Anyone have any plans for the weekend???

This looks so good! Do you think I could prep it then freeze it, before cooking?


Lori September 12, 2013 at 5:41 PM

Definitely think that would work!

Thanks so much! I’m excited to try this. Sorry, I have another question – could ricotta cheese be a substitute for goat cheese?

Ricotta would be a perfect sub! It won’t have the same robust flavor as the goat cheese but it’ll still taste great!

I’d watch for the water content, too, though. The ricotta will have more water in it… so just be aware. You may want to add in a few handfuls of oats to soak up any extra liquid from the cheese.

Good luck!

So as much as I’m not a fan of goat cheese and/or meatloaf, this looks really good! I might have to give it another try 🙂
