Anyone tried it? I saw one recipe that uses rice flour instead of bread crumbs, but it just doesn't sound very yummy.

I add almond flour and egg, ketchup, spices, etc and it's very yummy.

I never add bread crumbs, I add oatmeal instead and it is great. My meatloaf is about 1lb ground beef, 1/2c oatmeal, and 1 cup or so of leftover cooked veggies (whatever's in the fridge) diced fine, plus whatever seasoning I feel inspired to add, usu. some salt, pepper and one or two other things.

Try the recipe you have with rice flour. I bet it will turn out fine!

I never heard of wheat-free meatloaf until you mentioned it.

Oatmeal! Cornflakes! I've been wracking my brain for something in the cupboard so I wouldn't have to go back to the store. I have both of these. Yay!

Thanks!

The meatloaf was a big hit. I used a recipe from foodnetwork.com and just replaced oatmeal for the breadcrumbs. Very tasty. Also, I snuck in some carrots and celery. bwahahahahaha.

I've always used oatmeal & egg to bind my meatloaf. Also, I always have grated carrot in the mix- although my kids like carrot.... Maybe I should try & grate eggplant into the mixture next time......

I also use liberal dashes of Worstershire sauce in my mix, & a few other dried herbs which I think of on the day.

I use oatmeal in my meatloaf. A handful of oatmeal, and egg, a lot of worchester, grated zucchini, and grated carrot. Mix it with meat - 1/2 ground beef, 1/2 ground turkey DP's mom makes meatloaf with a can of spanish rice, and it's amazing!

I like to pulse it in the food processor a few times to break it up. It doesn't have that oatmeally texture to it. Not necessary, but I find it better this way.
