Gluten Free Swedish Meatloaf

Gluten Free Swedish Meatloaf

I have adapted this recipe from my Betty Crocker meatball recipe that I used for years- I switched out the pork for pasture raised hamburger and cut back the salt a bit.  Also, I substituted the dehydrated mushrooms for the breadcrumbs.  This time when I was making this recipe I did not have an onion in my house so I used dehydrated onion flakes also.  This was so delicious.  You wouldn’t need the gravy, but for a special meal it is nice to do.  I have also made this as meatballs and baked them in the oven instead of frying on top of the stove.  No turning and watching constantly.  But I really like it as a meatloaf – saves time from shaping all the meatballs.  🙂
