Introduction

This is my favorite meatloaf recipe ever! The Quinoa adds extra protein and vitamins. To me the Raisins are an absolute must! This is my favorite meatloaf recipe ever! The Quinoa adds extra protein and vitamins. To me the Raisins are an absolute must!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 lb Ground Turkey (You could use all ground Turkey but I like a little beefy-ness)
    1 lb Lean Ground Beef
    1/2 c. raisins, chopped
    2 cups of cooked quinoa
    1 cup of Grated or minced carrots
    1 sm. onion minced
    1/3 cup of an egg substitute (i.e. EggBeaters)
    Dash of milk
    2 t. Worcestershire Sauce
    Large pinch of Oregano
    Salt
    Pepper

Directions

Preheat your oven to 450 F
Combine the meats, raisins, quinoa, carrots, onions, salt, pepper, oregano and Worcestershire sauce together, making sure it is well combined. Add the Egg substitute and a dash of milk making sure everything holds together. Take a muffin pan but DO NOT GREASE IT and distribute the meat mixture evenly into each cup mounding it a little ontop.
Bake in your oven for 20 minutes or until done, but make sure to cook them completely since we are using turkey.

I eat one muffin per serving and it is delicious!

    Added about 1 c celery. The raisins seemed a bit odd, but were GREAT! I ended up with almost 1/3 of the mixture left over after I filled my muffin tins... not sure if I should have packed more in each cup. BF loved it even if it was "healthy" :) Will make again for sure! - 4/18/11

    This is great! I didn't have raisins, so I used dried cranberries (nice tartness). I only had turkey, but next time I'll use the half turkey / half beef. Might add more seasonings, but that's just personal preferences. Definite winner! - 3/22/11

    These are very good and this recipe has become a standard at our house. The only problem is they are too good and I am tempted to eat two. - 6/13/10

    So good! I made the quinoa with chicken stock for extra flavor. I Couldn't really taste the raisins but it was fantastic with some brussels sprouts and ketchup. - 7/8/09

    These are good but my meat must have been extra lean because there was no grease. We felt they needed some sort of a sauce so I am using the leftovers in spaghetti sauce for spaghetti and meatballs this evening for dinner. - 7/8/10
