Gluten Free Meat Loaf

One to eat and one to freeze
 A recipe from the Gluten Free Made Simple cookbook that everyone enjoys is this meat loaf recipe. One of the ingredients is 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, serve with a baked potato and a vegetable. You could vary the sauce on top which I will do occasionally to change the taste.
 Meatloaf freezes well so for just one you could cut this in half and then freeze any slices left over from half a recipe.
Old Fashioned Meat Loaf
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

    1. It is good and makes excellent meatballs also.

  2. That looks and sounds delicious. We really like meatloaf here.

    1. It makes for a warm, cosy, inexpensive meal which we can all use these days.

  3. OH, Yum.
    I gotta try this using the Corn Flakes
    II do use part Italian Sausage or pork sausage along with the hamburger meat when I make mine mine.
    I know what will be on my meal planning menu for next week.
    Thanks 4 sharing the recipe Myrna.
    Have a great day & enjoy your evening

    1. Cornflakes sound good to me, I often use ground pork with the ground beef, haven't tried sausage and now will. Do you use spicy sausage or mild?

    2. I use the mild. Hubby here doesn't like anything that is spicy.
      I meant to say Corn Chex. Was making my grocery list and put down corn flakes. Crushed corn flakes is what I use for chicken coating.

    3. Corn flakes do work in a meatloaf but I like corn chex better. I bought some sausage, mild, to try with the next meat loaf I make.
