Gluten free Meatloaf with Tomato and Balsamic Glaze! I didn’t know what to call this recipe. It’s not your grandma’s Sunday meatloaf, that’s for sure. In fact, it’s better and gluten free!
Like I mentioned on instagram, it’s a CRAZY COTTER Creation. But it’s also resourceful and strange but good. I almost didn’t even post it. Why? Because I feel like people wouldn’t give it a chance. Sad, but true. Maybe because there are so many “rules” and “trends” that are being followed these days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about doing what’s best for you, but sometimes I think we need to just eat what we crave. Which explains this recipe..
This weekend was a hard training weekend for the kiwi. Sunday night the man was craving salt and meat. I’m not gonna lie, so was I! I’m a carnivore, for sure. There I stood, pondering how to make a meaty dinner when suddenly it “POPPED” in my head (pun intended). I should make a salt and vinegar like meat loaf!
The end result was this dish. One of the best dishes we’ve had in a long time. Craving satisfied!
Don’t worry, I gave a meat free option too.Print
- 1lb organic ground beef or turkey
- 1 oz (small bag) of crushed sea salt pop chips (or other GF potato chips)
- 1/2 tsp BBQ seasoning- Make sure it’s gluten free
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup chopped onion (optional)
- Balsamic glaze or balsamic vinegar
- Preheat oven to 400F. Oil your bread pan and set aside. Crush your pop chips and set aside. Save a few crumbs to sprinkle over loaf when done.
- Then, in a small mix your ground beef and egg. Add in your pop chips and onion and mix again. Finally, add your seasonings and mix on last time. Press batter into pan and bake at 400F for about 40 minutes give or take. Check around 30 to see how it’s baking.
- Remove from oven and cover with tomato sauce. Then drizzle with balsamic glaze or vinegar and any leftover pop chips crumbs.
- For Vegetarians: –> Try it with tempeh, lentils, or ground chickpeas!
