Gluten Free Meatloaf Recipe

Searching gluten free meatloaf recipe?  We have a gluten free meatloaf recipe to share today that we are pretty excited about.  

This gluten free meatloaf without breadcrumbs is a meatloaf made with instant mashed potatoes.  

Remember how I said good thing I am not a food blogger?  Well, you may decide that is definitely not my calling after seeing this picture, but the taste is something else...  the flavors explode in your mouth and I was quite happy with the results.  Presentation when it comes to food is not my forte, but I do love the end piece of meatloaf... on with the recipe! 

Any other GF folks out there?  Have you noticed the prices on GF foods?  It isn't cheap, but this recipe does not require any fancy breadcrumbs or flours.  You will never guess what I used as a binding agent... and I have to say, this is the best meatloaf I have made in quite some time.

I use my small food processor when I cut up onion and green pepper, I LOVE onion, but Mr. Vintage not so much so I have to get it in there without him seeing it.  Shhh.. do not tell him!

I have never really made a glaze per say for meatloaf, but I tried one for this.  

  1. 1/2 c ketchup
  2. 2 1/2 T brown sugar
  3. 4 t apple cider vinegar
  4. 1 t Dijon mustard  
  5. Mix all and set aside


  1. 2 onions, finely chopped
  2. 1 green pepper finely chopped
  3. 2 heaping t of minced garlic from a jar
  4. 1/4 t thyme
  5. 2 large eggs
  6. 1/2 c almond milk
  7. 2 t Dijon mustard
  8. 2 t Worcestershire sauce
  9. salt and pepper to taste
  10. 1/3 c potato flakes (yep, just like what you use to make mashed potatoes with! And super budget friendly)
  11. 2 lbs ground beef

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  I wrap all of my pans in foil (makes for easier clean up). 

I am not one who likes prepping so I just threw all of the ingredients into the mixing bowl, minus the potato flakes and ran the mixer until it was all combined and well blended.  I added the potato flakes slowly as the mixer was mixing everything together.  This makes a very large meatloaf which is something I love to do so I do not have to cook every night of the week, we were able to eat 3 meals from this.  

I formed the meatloaf in the pan and added 1/2 of the glaze to the meatloaf.  Baked 40 minutes at 350 degrees, removed from oven and added the rest of the glaze to the top, put back in oven at 350 degrees and baked another 35 minutes.

I love to share recipes, but like I said, my presentation is desirable.... hope you enjoy a new meatloaf recipe without all of the fancy ingredients.  I am always looking for low cost ways to make things we both like.  The nut flours are so expensive and sometimes I just like to try new things. 

I do love my vintage plates and get them out every so often.  I have another set that also has the small cups that go with them.  Not always so easy to find both items together.  Good thing I like to decorate more than cook!

Do you have an recipes you would like to share with us?  We would love to hear about your cooking experiences.... hopefully better than mine!
