Old Fashioned Meat Loaf Gluten Free

  A recipe from the Gluten Free Made Simple cookbook that we all enjoyed was this meat loaf recipe. I found it amusing that one of the ingredients is for crushed Corn Chex®. I always have them on hand as they are a good gluten free cold cereal. Not all corn cereal is GF. However, most of the Chex cereals are. I just never thought of using them in a meat loaf. The rice made a nice addition also and both worked well, and we all enjoyed the meat loaf served with baked potatoes and a vegetable. You could vary the sauce on top which I will do occasionally to change the taste.
Old Fashioned Meat Loaf
⅔ cup Corn Chex®
1 ½ lbs. Ground beef
1 cup cooked white or brown rice
2 eggs
3 tablespoons GF ketchup (Heinz® Tomato Ketchup)
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon finely chopped onion
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
⅓ cup GF ketchup (Heinz® tomato ketchup)
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  Preheat oven to 350°. 
Place the Corn Chex® in a plastic bag and crush with rolling pin and set aside.
In a large bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and add the crushed chex.
  Shape into two loaves and place on a rimmed baking sheet. (I used a 9 x 13 pan) Stir the ⅓ cup of ketchup and brown sugar together and spoon half on each meat loaf.
  Bake for 45 minutes at 350°.   Serves 6
