Comment: Everyone needs a gf meatloaf recipe and no two people make it the same which is why they're family favorites. The recipes are passed down family-to-family, modified as each generation adds or subtracts their own ingredients and who's to say theirs is not the best? Our recipe is a bit of this and a bit of that and feel free to experiment. Yours will be as good if not better.
Cooking time:
1 hour

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except bacon mixing together to form a large ball.
  3. In an 8"x12" roasting pan or casserole dish, add the meat mix and shape into a loaf.
  4. Take the strip of bacon and stretch it across the top of the loaf.
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until the bacon is cooked which should mean that your meatloaf is cooked but check to be sure. Pry the middle with a fork and the beef should be brown. If not, cook longer.
Condiments: Ketchup, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream or Butter (for potatoes & vegetables)
Sides: Canned Corn, Canned Beans, Potato Pancakes, Baked or Mashed Potatoes, Potato Salad, Mixed Green Salad
