Gluten-Free Quick Meatloaf Using ‘4 Ingredients’

Welcome to the most helpful post you’ll ever read as a newly gluten-free human. Well, other than this one, and maybe this one also. But if you, like me, started to freak out a little bit when you viewed the rows of gluten-free flours and complicated blends to make the perfect cake, sans gluten, then 4 Ingredients Gluten-Free is going to make you cry gluten-free tears of relief.

This should be obvious by the title, but just in case clarity is in order, these ladies created a cookbook where every single recipe uses four ingredients or less, and now they’ve gone g-free. Simply the easiest gluten-free cookbook you’ll ever come across. So easy, in fact, my daughter made gluten-free meatloaf last night all by herself. (She also insisted that I let you all know that she had NO assistance from me. She’s prideful like that.)

Sure I like to bust out the stand mixer and kitchen shears from time to time, but I can’t do that kind of cooking every day. And if you can, I hate you. So having a cookbook handy that makes dinner redonkulously easy, makes me incredibly excited. See?

Because all you need to do for this gluten-free meatloaf recipe is mix together eggs, ground sirloin, gluten-free bread crumbs, and tomato paste. And any 6-year-old can handle that process. Although my girl did decide to add two extra ingredients; salt and pepper. For some reason my kids have been stoked to put salt and pepper on every plate of food that comes out in front of them. I think it’s the pepper grinder, which is a lot of fun if you think about it.

Anyhoo! Fast, easy, and totally gluten-free. And you guys — there are 400 more recipes in 4 Ingredients Gluten-Free you can also whip up in no time. Everything from Tandoori Lamb to Pears in Coffee Syrup. Which you know you’re going to get to, right after you eat up all your meatloaf.

How freaking easy is that?

  2. Awesome news! I do like a simple recipe and as one who has made gf donuts where I felt like people needed to go through a screening process to be allowed to eat them, this sounds fantastic. Go E with the cooking. Perhaps she takes after her aunt in more than just the curly hair?

  3. lol not so easy….i’m allergic to tomato, i’m out of gf bread, and the only breadcrumps that I can find, include potato(allergic) AND are nut/pnut contaminated lol.

  4. Can anyone tell me- why do most meatloaf recipes include some sort of startch- whether bread, breadcrumbs, rice, oatmeal, cracker crumbs, etc.?
    I make it without the bread , and it seems fine.
