“These individual serving "meatloaves" are delicious. My boyfriend loves these!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the thick stems off of the collard greens. Steam the collards for 3 to 4 minutes until soft and pliable. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey and all of the seasonings in a bowl.
  4. Divide into 4 sections to form little logs.
  5. Wrap each log in 3-4 collard leaves overlapped and wrapped around the turkey like wrapping a burrito or eggroll.
  6. Place packets seam side down in a square 8x8 baking dish and top each with ¼ cup of salsa or enchilada sauce.
  7. Cover with foil and bake until turkey is cooked through, about 40 minutes.
  8. If you want to make this Italian instead of Mexican, omit the cumin and add 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning instead. You can omit the red chili flakes or leave them in, whatever your personal preference is.
  9. Instead of topping with salsa, use marinara.
  10. You can also add a dab of pesto on top of each one if you like.
