"Another of Greta's wonderful recipes. The quinoa replaces bread crumbs. Baking the meatloaf on a broiler pan versus in a loaf pan allows the fat to drain away and the exposure to the air gives a nice crusty exterior all around the loaf, not just on top. Check your bbq sauce to verify that it is gluten-free if that is important to you."

This is an interesting recipe, but didn't quite work for me. It didn't slice well, just fell apart, and it needed salt. Sorry, Patti. I did like using bbq sauce, rather than ketchup.
