The person in our house who is suffering most from the gluten-free diet is my husband. The poor guy misses his bread, bbq sauce and doughnuts! Lately he’s been dying for some meatloaf. I’ve spent hours reading recipes online but they’re usually too spicy or include something that someone either won’t eat or is allergic too. My daughter is also allergic to dairy and soy so it can be difficult to find a tasty alternative.
Last week I came across this recipe. The title sounded great and when I read through it, it seemed simple enough so I decided to give it a go. The title’s not lying, this is as good as my mom’s. If you want to add something similar, tamari works well. Just be sure it says that it is gluten-free on the bottle. Here’s the recipe.
Gluten Free Meatloaf to Die For
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour
1 pound ground beef (I like grass-fed, organic)
1 slice gluten free bread
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash all-purpose seasoning (gluten-free)
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons organic ketchup (no high fructose corn syrup)
1 tablespoon tamari (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients together in a large glass bowl and mix well. I find my hands work best.
Shape into an 8 x 4 casserole dish or standard loaf pan. Bake for at least one hour or until the internal temperature of the meat is at least 170 degrees F.
