I have no idea why my daughter loves meatloaf, but she does. And she tells me all the time “Mama, you make the best meatloaf! Can you please make meatloaf for dinner?” So who can say no to making meatloaf, when you get such a 5 star review!
So this time around I decided I was going to do something from the normal “Loaf” that I make. I decided to use a Large Muffin Tin to make individual servings. And I have to say — it came out great. And the little muffins popped really easily right out of the tin!

So tonight I decided to make an american classic — Meat Loaf… something I don’t make very often at all… but when I do, I always have to have 2 helpings! I am paring it with a side of rice and fresh zucchini.
1 pound ground beef, ground turkey or a mixture of both (here I have used ground turkey)
1-1/4 teaspoons himalayan salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cracked pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion – fresh or dried
8 ounces canned Italian Stewed tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup gluten free oats
2 large carrots, shredded
Gluten Free BBQ sauce – I used Kinders BBQ Mild BBQ Sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix all meatloaf ingredients well and place in a baking dish. Shape into a loaf.
Bake for 1 hour.
