    Easy Gluten-free Meatloaf

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    When I was growing up, meatloaf was one of the dishes that made a regular appearance at our table. The rich, tomato-based sauce complimented the meatloaf, and was sure to bring smiles to the family table.

    Taking a meatloaf sandwich to school the next day was something of a rite of passage, and a delicious one at that.

    Here's a simple recipe for a meatloaf that is easy to make, easy on the wallet, and sure to please kids and adults alike.

    • 1½ pounds ground beef
    • 1 egg
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup dried gluten-free bread crumbs
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons gluten-free mustard (I use Annie's, made with apple cider vinegar)
    • ½ cup ketchup
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Note: To make the bread crumbs, I like to toast up any older Udi's gluten-free bread that may still be in my fridge.

    In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk and gluten-free bread OR gluten-free cracker crumbs.

    Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 5x9 inch loaf pan.

    In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.

    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.

    I like to serve it with roasted vegetables, fresh salad and toasted gluten-free bread with butter. However, mashed potatoes and gluten-free gravy make a nice side as well.

    Good recipe! Even less expensive is to use crushed Chex cereal instead of gluten-free bread crumbs. I substitute a mix of crushed rice & corn Chex for bread crumbs for meatloaf, stuffing, baked chicken, and other recipes.

    I use "Baken-its" brand pork skins, crumbled up, instead of the gluten-free bread or bread crumbs. The hot ones are spicier. No gluten in it. Good taste. Some people who are gluten intolerant are sensitive to milk, so I would leave it out.

    I am new to learning to cook gluten-free. Thank you for the pork skins tip instead of using bread crumbs.

    I followed the instructions exactly, except for using mustard. I've never made a meatloaf before. It turned out amazing, I was surprised. It tasted really good too. Thank you so much. I made this for my girlfriend who is gluten-free, and she liked it too.

    I used 8 ounces of diced tomatoes, 1/4th cup of gluten-free oats and 3/4th gluten-free Italian bread crumbs came out moist and perfectly put together even with a cup of chopped bell peppers
