Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 C gluten-free crackers
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/3 C whole milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a bowl, combine the beef, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper with your hands.
  • Wash up then place crackers in a blender to crush. It should bring it down to around 1 C of gluten-free bread crumbs. Add them to the meat mixture and mix with your hands until incorporated.
  • On a silicone baking mat lined baking sheet, lay bacon out in a lattice.
  • Mold beef into a loaf and lay on the bacon lattice. Flip it all over and tuck extra bacon pieces under the meatloaf.
  • Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until beef is fully cooked inside.
  • Meanwhile, boil potatoes.
  • Drain potatoes and add butter and milk plus salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place potatoes in a pastry bag and pipe onto meatloaf before serving.
  • Use black pepper or black beans for eyes.

Notes

This recipe works great with ground turkey or ground beef. Really it comes down to a personal preference. My friend Brianna at Flippin Delicious also has a great gluten-free turkey meatloaf recipe!
Serve it up with our piped hot mashed potatoes ghosts and our gluten-free green bean casserole and you have a homestyle meal that everyone will love!
This meatloaf freezes fantastic! Just wrap it up in aluminum foil then place it in a freezer bag. You can pull slices out as needed and microwave the for 2-3 minutes. 
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
