Makes 8 servings


1 sheet (24x12 inches) heavy-duty foil
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup unseasoned dry breadcrumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 eggs
2 tablespoons bacon bits
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Center foil over 9X5X3-inch loaf pan. Gently ease foil into pan; leaving a 1-inch overhang on sides of pan and 5-inch overhang on each end. Generously spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine turkey, onion, breadcrumbs, bell pepper, eggs, bacon bits, thyme, salt and black pepper in medium bowl; mix well.
  3. Place about 3 cups turkey mixture into prepared pan, packing down lightly and making an indentation, end to end, with back of large spoon.
  4. Combine spinach, sour cream and cheese in medium bowl. Spoon into indentation. Cover with remaining turkey mixture, packing down lightly. Fold foil over sides to cover completely; crimp foil, leaving head space for heat circulation.
  5. Bake about 50 minutes or until cooked through. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes. Unwrap and slice into 1-inch slices.
