Feta stuffed turkey meatloaf

adapted from lovestoeat

Meatloaf:
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2 lbs ground turkey
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup chicken stock
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions:
For the meatloaf, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 325F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions, salt and pepper and saute until onions are translucent but not browned.  Add in spinach and stir until heated through.
In a large mixing bowl, combine onion mixture, turkey, bread crumbs, chicken stock, egg and worcestershire sauce. Mix until very well combined.
Place half of the turkey mixture on prepared baking sheet and shape into a flat rectangle, about 1 inch thick. Cover with feta cheese, pressing on feta to adhere to meatloaf. Place remaining turkey mixture overtop of feta and shape the whole thing into a rough loaf.
Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until internatl temperature reaches 160F on an instant read thermometer.
