Hi all,

One thing I love is meatloaf. Here is a recipe I came up with. I usually like to include the brand names. Enjoy!
1 T (Mazola corn oil)
1/4 cup (vadalia onion) coarse chopped
1/4 cup carrots coarse chopped
1 lb. ground chuck
1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup (Heinz ketchup)
1/4 cup (Progresso) garlic and herb bread crumbs
1/4 cup water
1 large egg
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Pam non-stick spray.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small skillet heat 1 T oil. Brown onions and carrots till light golden brown (approx. 10 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool (approx. 5 minutes) Photo A

In a medium bowl combine onion and carrot mix, ground chuck, 1/2 cup ketchup, bread crumbs, water, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Spray the bottom of your favorite casserole with a non-stick spray. Form meat into a loaf.

Top the meatloaf with remaining 1/4 cup ketchup also covering the sides. Photo B

Bake uncovered for 50 minutes. Remove and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Photo C

Serve with your favorite sides. Photo D

Hey Aunt Judy,

I am actually starting a food blog myself for the gluten-free cooking.

Here's the link...

There isn't much yet, as I am trying to go through recipes and write them up and take pics.

Perhaps you and I could start one together and add recipes. That might be a fun project.
