I didn't grow up with meatloaf, I always thought it sounded weird and gross as a kid.
Now that I'm a mom, it's a life-changer! I can whip it up during my food prep day, and even if I don't, it's easy enough to put together any day of the week.
Here's a basic recipe that takes out the breadcrumbs and adds in a little BBQ twist!
1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup gluten-free oats
1/2 cup milk (any type will work)
1/4 onion, diced small
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1/4 cup low-sugar BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup additional for topping
1) Preheat oven to 375*F
2) In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients
3) Turn out the meat mixture into a loaf pan, spread out evenly
4) Top with the remaining 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce
5) Bake 45-60 minutes, until center of the loaf reaches 165*F
