Turkey Meatloaf


I used to hate meatloaf when I was younger, but now that I'm all grown up, its something I love to make. It is a great weeknight option as the leftovers make great lunches the next day. It is also a great way to sneak in vegetables if you have picky eaters. If you use ground turkey you can cut back on the fat content, and if you substitute quinoa for bread crumbs you get an increased amount of protein and fiber.

Ingredients

1 package ground turkey
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 garlic clove, chopped
pinch salt and pepper
1 Tbsp Franks hot sauce
3-5 dashes Worcester sauce
1 egg
1/4 cup quinoa
1/2 cup water
1 tsp chicken broth powder

Directions

1. In a pot combine the water, quinoa, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and then turn to low-medium until water is absorbed - approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
2. Preheat oven to 350*. Spray a bread pan with non stick spray.
3. In a large bowl combine the turkey, tomato paste, garlic clove, salt, pepper, Worcester sauce, Franks hot sauce, and egg. Stir until combined. Add cooled quinoa.
4. Place mixture into prepared pan and place in the oven for 25 minutes.

For an added flavour boost top with a mixture of light blue cheese dressing and Franks hot sauce!
