Melt in Your Mouth MeatloafYou might have noticed my lack of posts recently. I’m not trying to neglect you, really. I’ve been running back and forth to my folks’ place for the last couple of weeks helping them pack, sort, and organize for their coming move.

Mom and I had some late nights, early mornings, and packing tape chasing us in our dreams but we got a good portion done. We even had time to take one last walk through the woods where we spotted some May flowers.

Before the kids and I left, I made Travis one of his favorite easy-to-reheat meals. The topping is what makes it so scrumpt-dilly-ocious.

Gluten-Free Meatloaf (egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, yeast free)
1 lb. ground beef
1 c. gluten-free oatmeal
2 T. dried onion
1/2 c. milk (or coconut milk)
1/2 c. homemade ketchup (Heines is gluten-free as an alternative)
2 T. Worchestershire sauce
1 t. celtic sea salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 egg, beaten

3/4 c. homemade ketchup (Heines is gluten-free as an alternative)
1/2 c. rapadura (has a nice molasses/brown sugar flavor)

1. Combine the raw ground beef, oatmeal, dried onion, milk, 1/2 c. ketchup, Worchestershire sauce, celtic sea salt, pepper, and egg. Mix well and press into a 9×9 pan. The hamburger makes it unnecessary to grease the pan.

2. Combine the topping ingredients and spread over the meatloaf.

3. Bake at 350 for 45-50 min.

I’m Paula - like many of you I wear a lot of hats. Child of God, wife of 18 years, mother of five, reluctant cook, full-time teacher, chocolate-snatcher, and children's author. Various family health issues including Lyme disease and candida has turned me into a 'researcher'. I don't have initials after my name, a degree in anything but motherhood, or a framed certificate on my wall. What I do have is a passion for understanding how our God-created bodies thrive or deteriorate based on what we put in it. Oh, and I also might mention homesteading, homeschooling, fitness, herbs, faith, and anything else I'm thinking about. . . like wow, I need to refill my tea. . .

    Meat loaf is on our meal plan for this week! Our recipe is similar, although not gluten free.

    It’s one of my hubby’s favorites too!
