Easy Gluten-free Meatloaf

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 GF oats and 3/4th GF Italian bread crumbs came out moist and perfectly put together even with a cup of chopped bell peppers

So as many of you might know at only 6 weeks Gluten Free we were shocked to see how many Neurological Issues were resolved for our daughter. It was shocking and amazing. We quickly began to realize that the difficulty swallowing, the Vertigo, the sensory issues were ALL Gluten related. Now in the last 2 weeks it all slipped away and she is almost entirely back to the way she was before we went Gluten Free. We have a pretty good idea why and are taking the steps to remedy it. BUT...it struck me that (for HER sake and the sake of her long term medical records) I need to get the Gluten Ataxia recognized. I realize now how fragile her health is and how hard she will have to fight to STAY healthy. And worse - potentially EVERY cross contamination will take her out for weeks and make her employment opportunities shaky and vulnerable. My Dr. agrees and is sending us to the McMaster Neurological Department (they are cutting edge, up on all that is new etc) to see if they are willing to work with us. She just put the referral in so I have no idea what will come from it. It my result in nothing? Or she may get a Gluten Ataxia diagnosis? I'm not sure but it is worth fighting for.

In my research, diabetes (type 2) is genetic. You either have the genes to develop diabetes or you do not. Additional weight is most likely due to insulin resistance. I happen to be a thin diabetic. I have never been heavy. I was brought up to consume the Standard American diet (SAD) full of process and sugary foods. The problem most celiacs have is that they just simply convert the SAD diet into a gluten free diet. I disagree. We need to consume foods that naturally contain nutrients that are good for us. Fortified foods were only developed during the last century. In the 20's they added iodine to salt to prevent thyroid disease (goiters). In the 30's they added Vitamin D to prevent rickets (fortified milk was better than that nasty cod liver oil). In the 40's they started fortifying flour. Why? They found that kids entering into the military during WWII were malnourished. Yes. They were malnourished. Remember, the Great Depression preceded the war. Read more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK208880/ I consume very few grains because I do have diabetes. I eat fresh veggies (full of fiber), meats, fruit, eggs, and dairy along with plenty of fat (which does not raise blood sugar). I do occasionally fall of the wagon, but never the gluten-free wagon! Granted this diet is not for everyone. We must choose what works best for our individual health issues. But chances are we do not need to consume processed junk food in a daily basis. It is not healthy for a celiac. It is not healthy for anyone! So, everything in moderation and enjoy a varied diet.

I felt great a few weeks after going gluten-free. finally started loosing weight as well. the last few weeks I have not felt good. ok in the morning, then slowly start getting brain fog. shakes. pains. is low blood sugar a side affect of going gluten free????

I had a bone scan it didn't show any fractures, basically I left physical therapy in pain, it then went away. But my knee pain and tingling didn't go away so I tried PT again and I left it pain. Then I realized I had celiac and now all my pain is gone other then the back pain.. I'm basically worried I healed from the celiac and PT caused a whole new problem that never had to happen.

I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
