Classic Meatloaf, gluten-free



  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 3/4 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup Ian's gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 pound bacon


  • 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

  2. Place onion and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to chop up. Chop until small, but not to liquid. Remove onions and garlic to a large bowl.

  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients except for bacon and sauce ingredients. Stir together. Pat the mixture into a loaf shape in a 9" x 13" pan.

  4. Open the package of bacon and lay over the top of the meatloaf to cover completely.

  5. Bake in the oven for about an hour. Check the temperature in the center; meatloaf should be 155 degrees. While meatloaf is in the oven, heat and combine sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium heat.

  6. When the meatloaf is the correct temp and the bacon is browned, top with some of the sauce. Bake 10 minutes more or broil to finish sauce. Serve warm.
