Cutting gluten from your diet? You don’t need to miss out on your favorite foods. Try our no-fuss gluten-free meatloaf for the comfort food you crave.



  • Nonstick cooking oil spray
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (80-93% lean)
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs (or gluten-free rolled oats)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons ketchup, divided
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onions
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 15-ounce can mixed vegetables, rinsed, drained, and finely chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking oil spray. You can also use a standard size loaf pan lined with foil and sprayed with oil.
  2. Place the ground beef, breadcrumbs or oats, 1/4 cup ketchup, minced onions, egg, salt, pepper, and canned vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Mix together with your hands until well combined.
  3. Place the ground beef mixture on the prepared baking sheet and form it into a loaf shape, or place into the loaf pan, press it into the corners, and smooth the top.
  4. Spread the remaining ketchup evenly on top of the loaf.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes on a baking sheet, or until meatloaf is cooked through (160˚F) and is no longer pink inside. If you are using a loaf pan, bake for 45 minutes, and continue to bake in 10-minute increments until it’s cooked through.
  6. Remove from the oven. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
