Gluten Free Classic Meatloaf Recipe with Oats

meatloaf recipe

I surprisingly just recently realized that I have never shared my meatloaf recipe here. I can’t believe it! It is my favorite meal and probably my most often cooked and requested one too. So…it’s about time! This recipe is from my mom’s meatloaf recipe that she cooked for us all the time growing up, but I’ve tweaked mine some.

I have made it gluten free by swapping out bread or crackers for oats. And I’ve also swapped my ketchup to my favorite brand, Primal Kitchen. I also left the onions out of mine because Matt isn’t an onion fan. And I’ve added mushrooms because everything tastes better with mushrooms in it, yum!

Check out my recipe below and let me know if you end up trying it. It is a pretty traditional, classic style meatloaf with a few swaps, and it is SO good. It tastes even better once it’s cooled down, and it makes for amazing leftovers. I feel like that is so rare! Enjoy!
