I was deprived my whole childhood of the wonder that is Meatloaf!  My mom has been convinced for over three decades that she hates meatloaf so it was just something we never had growing up.  

It wasn’t until I got married and heard about how wonderful my mother in laws meatloaf was that I decided I needed to give it a try myself.  So I started searching for a recipe and found one online with a lot of positive reviews.  

I had to make a few modifications to make it gluten free, dairy free, egg free and oh my goodness folks it was so so good!  I couldn’t believe what I had been missing out on all these years.  

I’m pretty sure I’ve made this meatloaf almost once a week this winter because it’s so good and comes together so quick.  It takes all of about 10 minutes to put together and my whole house smells amazing while it cooks.

I’ve also made this meatloaf using ground turkey and I can tell you it’s one of my favorite ways to eat ground turkey.  I love having this option so that we can still enjoy this dish regularly without having to eat red meat every time.  

Throw some mashed potatoes and green beans on the side and you have yourself an amazing comfort dish which has been my go to style of meal this winter.  

What are some foods you didn’t have growing up that you absolutely love now?   I’m still trying to convince my mom to give meatloaf another try.  

I think I might make it for her sometime and just put it on a bun to make her think it’s a hamburger, haha!  I’m certain she would love it if she gave it another chance.  

I hope you all love this gluten free, dairy free, and egg free Meatloaf as much as my family does!

  1. Hi ,I have tried this recipe before and it’s one of our favorites. It’s really delicious. I just had a question I wanted to double up the recipe , for that do I need to double the baking time too?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Charlene!

      I’m so glad you enjoy this recipe! I haven’t tried doubling it, but if you do you will need to use 2 loaf pans (not just one larger pan). You should be able to place both loaf pans in the oven and cook for the same length of time as the recipe says. Cook time shouldn’t change. I hope this help! ?

      1. Hi
        This sounds really good but I have an allergy to flax seed and my son has an allergy to eggs. Any ideas on what I can use instead of both of those? Thank You

        1. Hi Libby, you could try making it without the flaxseed or egg. It may be a bit crumblier than traditional meatloaf, but it will still taste amazing. I hope this helps.

    2. Hi, my family has quite a few allergies and this recipe fits perfectly but we cannot use oats – can I replace oats with gluten free panko or breadcrumbs?

      Thanks!

      1. Hi Rachel, you can use gluten free panko or breadcrumbs instead of the oats.

  2. Great recipe! Thank you:) I adapted it to 1lb of ground turkey, and worked perfectly!. Nex time I will try the muffin trays instead, since I would like it to cook faster.

  3. Amazing! Best meatloaf I’ve made to date. Thank you, Morgan.

    1. Hi Mary Beth, you’re very welcome! I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed it!
