Gluten-Free Spicy Meatloaf
This meatloaf is so, so tasty! It may seem weird to add fish sauce, but trust me it gives it the perfect little boost! The leftovers make delicious meatloaf sandwiches (on gluten-free bread, of course)!
- 2 pounds ground turkey (I prefer to use a combo of light and dark meat)
- 1 yellow onion, small dice
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 carrot, small dice
- 1 stalk celery, small dice
- 4 tbsp grapeseed oil
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
- 1 tsp dried red chili flakes
- 1 1/2 cups gluten-free bread crumbs
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- Organic, sugar-free ketchup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sauté onions, carrots, and celery in oil for five minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking until veggies are soft. Mix in chili flakes, thyme, and salt. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and combine with bread crumbs. Using your hands, mix ground meat, sautéed vegetables, soaked bread crumbs, and fish sauce. Place mixture into an oiled, glass loaf pan or non-stick loaf pan. Bake for about 1½ hours. Cover the top of the meatloaf with organic ketchup for the last 15 minutes of baking. Enjoy!
