My son absolutely loves my meatloaf. Well, actually, he likes pretty much anything I put in front of him, but he scarfs this down with a smile on his face. And I just love that.
I got the basic recipe from ridestherange (Kim) on RecipeCircus.com, but because of our food allergies and sensitivities, I had to re-work it quite a bit.
1 lb lean ground beef
½ lb ground pork
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups GF bread crumbs [Udi’s bread is our favorite—4 or 5 slices]
5 tbsps flax meal mixed with 6 tbsps water [to replace 2 eggs] – whisk flax and water together until gelatinous, much like an egg white.
2 or 3 garlic cloves
1 stalk celery
1 small yellow sweet onion
3 or 4 small fresh mushrooms
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, whisk flax and water together until gelatinous, much like an egg white. Set aside.
In a food processor, chop the bread to make bread crumbs. Set aside.
In a food processor, chop garlic, celery and onion. [I pulverize it!]
Combine all ingredients—except the mushrooms—in a large mixing bowl, mixing with your hands. Form into two loaf shapes.
Spray two 8-inch loaf pans with GF cooking spray.
Clean the mushrooms [Be sure to wash away all dirt.] Press mushrooms into the top of the loaf.
Bake in center of oven for 1hr, 20 min. Enjoy!
