  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion, red bell pepper, and green bell pepper in hot oil until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic to vegetable mixture; saute until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Season with salt and black pepper; remove from heat to cool.
  3. Mix turkey, beef, quinoa, milk, eggs, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, sweet chili sauce, and ground ginger together in a bowl until well-combined. Add sauteed vegetable mixture; stir until completely incorporated. Gradually add bread crumbs to meat mixture until mixture is moist and holds together. Form into 6 mini loves and place loaves on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Whisk brown sugar, ketchup, and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved and glaze is smooth.
  5. Bake meat loaves in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Spread glaze over each loaf and continue baking until no loaves are longer pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you can't eat breadcrumbs, add the milk to the mixture last! Use half the amount, then mix; make sure adding the remainder will not make it too soupy! This should ensure that breadcrumbs are not necessary.

I prepared exactly as the recipe stated with the exception of leaving out the ginger and using a whole red & green pepper since mine were small. I thought the flavor was good and the quinoa ga...

I made this with a few changes and it was great. I used 2 colored peppers, no ginger or hot sauce. I used 2 tablespoons of balsalmic vinegar to flavor it instead. For the glaze I used 1/2 cup ...

This was the best meatloaf I’ve ever made! Everyone loved it. I will definitely be making it again!

I like this recipe, it’s very tasty. I’ve made it three times now. The first time turned out great! The next two times it was very (too) moist. Tons of liquid came out during cooking and made a...

This was delicious. I made it without milk due to a food allergy, but it doesn't need it. Great flavor, even my hubby who doesn't like quinoa, said it was good.

This was very good. I used round Ritz-type crackers instead of bread crumbs because I didn't have any. I will make it again.

This turned out great. I did not use the breadcrumbs. I blended a little bit of brown rice with the quinoa and used Sriracha instead of the sweet chili. Will make it again.
