BBQ Quinoa Meatloaf Muffins


  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 2 cups quinoa, cooked
  • 1 cup carrots, grated
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. milk

BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely minced
  • Dash or 2 of tabasco

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

Combine turkey, quinoa, carrots, onion, Worcestershire, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper together. Add the eggs and milk, making sure everything holds together. 

Divide the meat mixture into 12 wells in a regular size muffin tin (do not grease the pan). Each muffin should have a rounded top and be heaping full. 

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until done.

While the meatloaf is cooking, make the BBQ sauce. Combine all of the BBQ sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and cook for about 5 - 10 minutes on a low simmer until onions are slightly softened. Spread on meatloaf muffins about halfway into the cooking time. Add more sauce to cooked muffins, as desired.
