Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf Recipe

My turkey meatloaf recipe is already healthier than recipes using ground beef. But my turkey meatloaf recipe is incredibly healthy when it's mixed with Quinoa which adds even more protein and essential vitamins. Quinoa also makes all the protein more easily processed by the body.

This meatloaf recipe is a little more work but is still extremely easy to make. The quinoa makes this meatloaf recipe a little more expensive but the extra nutrition and great taste are worth it.

Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf Recipe
This meatloaf recipe is incredibly healthy for you. And it's delicious. I will give you the ingredients for three different sizes. We usually make the 3 lb. size because, once again, people tend to eat a lot.
1 lb.
2 lbs.
3 lbs.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Ground Turkey (I prefer Shadybrook Farms) 1 lb. 2 lbs. 3 lbs.
Eggs (Large) 1 2 3
Hot sauce. I use a mild hot sauce. My favorite is a brand called Sharkey's (scroll down for picture) but it can be a little hard to find. If you are using regular hot sauce you might want to cut his back by at least half. This is especially true if you are serving the meat loaf to children. You can always add more to taste later. 1 tbsp. 2 tbsp. 3 tbsp.
Worcestershire Sauce (I use Lea and Perrins) 1 tbsp. 2 tbsp. 3 tbsp.
Adobe Seasoning (Scroll down for picture) 1 tsp. 2 tsp. 3 tsp.
Vidalia Onion - Diced 4 ozs. 8 ozs. 12 ozs.
Olive Oil 1 tbsp. 2 tbsp. 3 tbsp.
Quinoa (I use Ancient Harvest) 1/3 C 2/3 C 1 C
Water (I always use bottles spring water) 2/3 C 1 1/3 C 2 C
  1. Preheat oven to 350°

    You know when quinoa is cooked when the spiral tail appears. It's that little tail that stays a little crunchy giving quinoa turkey meatloaf a unique and fantastic texture.
  2. Put the Quinoa and Water in a saucepan. Bring
    to boil and cook for about ten minutes. See the picture on the right to find out how you can tell when quinoa is cooked.
     
  3. Put the ground turkey and all other ingredients except the quinoa into a large bowl.
     
  4. Mix thoroughly.
     
  5. Place the Quinoa in the bowl and mix it in. You gotta say it. DON'T BURN YOURSELF. Be sure the Quinoa has cooled off.
     
  6. Place mixture in appropriate size baking dish. Sprinkle some parsley flakes over the top to add some color and place in preheated oven.
     
  7. It's difficult to say precisely how long to bake your meatloaf since it depends on the dish you're using, your ovens characteristics, etc. I bake the 3 lb. meatloaf, covered, for 1½ hours and then check to see if it's done. If it's a shallow baking dish you might want to start to check it after about an hour. You want it to be done but don't overcook it. You want it to be moist.
     
  8. Remove from oven and let stand for about twenty minutes.
      
One variation of this turkey meatloaf recipe is to mix in some chopped spinach or other "healthy vegetable". Your kids never see it coming and they gobble it right along with the meatloaf. Sneaky, huh?
