I made an awesome meatloaf last night.
I'm not just bragging... it was REALLY good!
I have extra so now I can have meatloaf sandwiches which are just an extension of more awesomeness by themselves.

I thought I'd share my recipe in case anybody is interested.
(If you don't like meatloaf, then you can stop reading and go check out some lolcats or sumthin')

My awesome meatloaf:
1-1/2 lbs of ground beef (the leaner the better)
1 lb of ground pork sausage (I used mild Italian)
2 eggs
3/4 cup of bread crumbs (or about 3 or 4 handfuls)
1/4 cup of worsteshire sauce (actually I just poured a bunch into the mixing bowl. It might've been a little less)
1 can of sliced mushrooms
1 pkg of instant beef & onion soup mix (like the Lipton kind)
and a handful of dried onions (if you have them)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (or 177 degrees Celsius)
Put everything into a big mixing bowl, then squish and mash it it all together with your hands.
Yes it's messy, but it'll be worth it. Trust me.
After you get everything all good and mixed up, put it into a regular-sized bread pan and bake it in the oven for about 55 - 60 minutes.

That's all. It's really pretty simple and oh so yummy!
Let me know if you try it and what you thought.

Nom nom nom.

Lose the eggs (not sure what else you'd use as a protien binder, though) and get some gluten-free bread crumbs, and I'm on my way over to help with the leftovers.

You could probably use an egg substitute, since they aren't a contributing flavor. Just a binder like you said.

I'll see about gluten-free crumbs.
Maybe crushed rice crackers?

Elwood said...

No...there are places you can buy GF bread crumbs, or I could make my own by drying some slices of rice bread or something. Easy enough.

I love meatloaf and i like to experiment with different ingredients... I will totally check this out.
I encourage you to post recipes, as I am a recipe whore.

There are lots of gluten-free binders, I will admit that reading Elwood's gluten-free post inspired me to check a gluten-free cook book out of the library....

Q - you should check out the "Simply Recipes" link I have on the main page (if you haven't already).
She has some of the coolest recipes on there, and they are just what she says.... simple.

I really love her site, and I think you might also.
