After a week of feeding the munchkin french toast and scrambled eggs for dinner, I decided it’s time to restock my freezer with some quick, go-to meals. I’ve also been trying to figure out what to make with the ground turkey in the freezer and realized that my Turkey Meatloaf Mini-Bites would be perfect! The only problem was that I didn’t have any zucchini at home. So rather than go to the store on a rainy, yucky day, I realized that I had some formerly-frozen chopped spinach in my fridge that I’ve been adding to the munchkin’s scrambled eggs, and decided to see what would happen if I used that instead of zucchini.
I kept everything the same except I used about 3/4 cup of the spinach instead of the zucchini. My first observation, not surprisingly, is that the mini-bites are green! But as far as taste, they are just as yummy. I couldn’t detect any spinach flavor, but was happy to add a nutritional boost. In fact, this experiment has made me wonder how much veggie goodness I can pack in – stay tuned to see what happens next time!
