Evelyn's Meatloaf (GFCFSF)

I converted my grandma's recipe to be gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF), and soy-free (GFCFSF) for this one. Turned out great!

Ingredients for Meatloaf
2/3 cup dry GF bread crumbs (I used torn up bits of Ener-G Tapioca Loaf along with some Hol-Grain bread crumbs)
2/3 cup hempmilk or other milk sub
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 slightly beaten eggs
1/4 cup grated onion
1 tsp. salt
some black pepper

Ingredients for Topping
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 tsp. nutmeg


Mix meatloaf ingredients well together in a mixing bowl with your hands. Put into a loaf pan. Mix topping ingredients together and spread on top of meatloaf. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours (90 minutes).


This is good with mashed potatoes. My 3-year old (SPD) has sensory issues with food. They've gotten better since starting the diet, but he's still not one to chomp on a big piece of meat on most days. So, for him, I give him tiny pieces of meatloaf stuck with toothpicks (so he doesn't have to touch the meat). It works (usually!).

This looks yummy!! Can't wait to try it...but my DS can't have eggs...will any egg replacer work? Is there something anyone can suggest?

Dear Anonymous:

Yes, we have recently become egg-free (after writing this post), so I now make it using Ener-G egg replacer.

Let me know how it works!
