If you grew up eating meatloaf, this Gluten Free Quaker Oats Meatloaf recipe will bring back some memories. I made mine a little healthier by using ground turkey, but you can easily use ground beef if you prefer a more juicy meatloaf.
Grab your favorite barbecue sauce and let’s get baking!
Meatloaf was one of those staples when we were growing up. It is inexpensive to make, and you can vary the ingredients quite a bit to get different flavors. You can feed a family of four for under $15 with this simple meatloaf recipe with oats.
Today we like to have meatloaf on busy weeknights. I can prep the meatloaf ahead of time and then bake it in the evening. Meal prep can be a huge timesaver if you have busy nights like us.
Although you can use gluten free breadcrumbs to make this ground turkey meatloaf, oats are a fun healthy way to change things up!
A Note About Oats
When making this recipe, it is very important to make sure your oats are certified gluten free. Several companies make gluten free oats including Bob’s Red Mill and Quaker Oats. Quaker Gluten Free Oats are the least expensive certified gluten free oat brand that I have seen. Oats get cross contaminated easily when they are growing, so do check your labels for the certified gluten free sign.
One of my favorite ways to make meatloaf was with barbecue sauce baked in on top of the meatloaf. There are quite a few gluten free BBQ sauces in the grocery store so pick your favorite!
Here are some fun ways to vary this gluten free turkey meatloaf with oats:
- Use diced onion instead of scallions
- Add two eggs for a little more moisture
- Use one pound ground turkey and one pound ground beef and mix together
- Add sundried tomatoes to the turkey mixture
- Make this recipe in a muffin tin to have single serve little meatloaves like this fun Gluten Free Meatloaf recipe.
Are you ready to make this delicious meatloaf recipe for yourself?
Add the raw ground turkey and the other ingredients in a bowl. To make the recipe as I did, you will add gluten free oats, shredded Mexican cheese blend, scallions, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper to the bowl.
Mix all of the ingredients well to blend in all of the seasonings and flavors into the meat.
Add the raw turkey oat mixture to a greased metal bread loaf pan. Use a spoon to flatten the meat mixture and make it even.
Pour the barbecue sauce on top of the raw ground turkey mixture. Bake at 375F degrees for 30 minutes until done. Top with chopped scallions.
