I made this with some hesitancy, but we absolutely loved the final result. I had to make some changes based on what we had on hand. I didn't have garlic or onions, so it was essentially turkey, quinoa, cheese (1/2C (60g) - I wanted some, not a lot) and spices. In addition to the recipe, I added quite a bit of onion and garlic powder, a touch of cumin, used one tablespoon of barbecue sauce in place of the hot pepper sauce, and since I didn't have tomato paste, I used one tablespoon of pasta sauce. I also rubbed a thin layer of barbecue sauce on the outside instead of the rub. I was worried the barbecue sauce (Montgomery Inn) would overwhelm, but it didn't. I also cooked the quinoa in water with a chicken bouillon cube, and the one egg was plenty. Shaped it as suggested, plopped it into the center of a 9x13 dish, and 50 minutes later we had an extremely tasty, yet healthy, meatloaf! Thanks so much for the recipe, the quinoa really makes it!
