If you’re so inclined, you can make your own gluten-free soup mix to use in everything from meatloaves to dips, just as you would with any off-the-shelf soup mix. I Can’t Believe It’s Low Carb demonstrates one that includes just seven ingredients, including dried onion flakes, onion powder, and gluten-free beef bouillon.
Of course, there are other ways to make your meatloaf gluten free and still keep it bound together. Gluten-Free Palate points out that you can purchase gluten-free oats to replace breadcrumbs or other binders. The website Talking Meals also illustrates that meatloaf can be easily made with no gluten. The five-ingredient recipe has just lean ground beef, onion, ketchup, eggs, and Parmesan cheese (as well as salt and pepper). The eggs and Parmesan cheese function to bind the loaf together and give moisture to the meat — and they’re gluten-free, of course.
Looking for an even more flavorful gluten-free binder? The Cookful points out that pork rinds can serve as a substitute for bread crumbs. Just be sure to check the label first, as you’ll occasionally find gluten in some brands, according to Celiac.com. Low in carbs, but high in fat, crush up some of these tasty snacks and combine them with your meat mixture to hold the meatloaf together perfectly.
