Remember earlier in the week when I posted about the amazing BBQ Cheddar Meatloaf with Caramelized Onions and promised you that I’d be posting another, much less sinful meatloaf with another crappy picture? Well, here it is, and it’s ridiculously tasty.
This recipe was inspired by Jessica of The Novice Chef, a blogger on my favorite cooking board whose “Ass-Friendly” recipes and writing style keep me coming back for more.
I’d never used quinoa as a meatloaf binder, but was really pleased with the results. Turkey, as we all know, tends to be a little bit on the dry side, but with the addition of the quinoa, this loaf remained moist and delicious. I used the leftover ingredients (sans turkey) to create a Greek quinoa pilaf to serve on the side. We’ll definitely be grilling this in burger form once the weather gets nicer!
