Gluten Free Meatloaf

2 lbs. ground beef or turkey
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup quinoa, cooked
1 small onion, chopped
1 TBS ginger, peeled and grated
1 1/2 tsp. salt
fresh ground pepper

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup

Rinse quinoa.  In a small saucepan, boil 1/3 cup of water.  Add quinoa, cover, and turn to low for 12 minutes.  Let sit a few minutes.  Mix meat with the rest of the ingredients (except topping.) I use a 2 prong fork or my hands.  Add quinoa.

Spray 1 large or 2 small loaf pans with non-stick spray. Add meat and shape. Spread ketchup over meat and top with the brown sugar. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until juice is clear. Let set 5 minutes before slicing.

I was pleased with the results using quinoa.  I tried making meatloaf with gluten free crackers, but it turned out mushy.
