Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a muffin tray with cooking spray.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Combine the ground turkey, bread crumbs, milk, egg, and parsley together in a bowl until well combined.
Scoop the meatloaf mixture evenly into the muffin tray, pushing down to flatten the meatloaf into the tray. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through.
While the meatloaf is baking, make the mashed potatoes. Right before you take the meatloaf out of the oven, wash the spinach and place in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the spinach with a touch of water, making sure to season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, for 1-2 minutes.
Remove the turkey meatloaf muffins from tin, add wilted spinach on top of the meat then spoon mashed potatoes on top of the spinach then sprinkle the chives on top of the potatoes. Serve immediately.
