I am not a fan of regular meatloaf, but this was FANTASTIC! I LOVED the texture of the ground meat and quinoa and felt the quinoa added a nice flavour. I think where this recipe goes wrong is not mentioning what TYPE of hot pepper sauce people should use. I read some reviews that thought the 'hot sauce' was overpowering, some that called the recipe bland. There are so many types of hot pepper sauce with differing flavour profiles, I'd like to know what type/brand the recipe's author intended. The first time I made this, I used a Thai sweet garlic chilli sauce, as a review recommended and it was PERFECT!! The second time I tried a Jamaican hot pepper sauce and it was too bland. I would never try a tablespoon of tabasco because I think that WOULD overwhelm the recipe, but I might try 1/2 TBS. This is a fantastic recipe and I intend to keep experimenting with the different hot pepper sauces, but I'll double the recipe and make one with the sweet garlic chilli sauce.
