This amazing flavorful gluten-free meatloaf is easy to make for a busy weeknight dinner. It is so moist and delicious and is a meatloaf recipe everyone will love! Plus it is also dairy-free!



For the meatloaf

  • 1 lb, lean ground beef – I used 90/10
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  •  1 medium onion – diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic – minced 
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the tomato glaze

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Then spray the pan with cooking spray to prevent sticking. 
  2. Add all of the meatloaf ingredients to a large bowl and mix well to combine using your hands or a fork. Make sure not to overmix. 
  3. Form the meatloaf mixture into the bottom of the loaf pan in an even layer. 
  4. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until the internal temperature, reaches 160 degrees F. 
  5. Mix up the glaze by combining all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Then spread the glaze all over the top of the meatloaf. 
  6. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and return the glazed loaf back to the oven for a few more minutes to get the top and edges slightly crispier. 
  7. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Then lift it from the pan, place it onto a cutting board or plate and slice and serve it hot with your favorite side dishes. 


  • Don’t overmix the meatloaf mixture. Mix until the ingredients are just combined. 
  • Line the pan with parchment paper to easily lift the meatloaf from the pan once it is done cooking. 
  • Cook the meatloaf until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. You can check this using a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meatloaf. 
  • Storing – store fully cooked meatloaf in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Freeze in a freezer-friendly container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight then reheat when you are ready to enjoy it. 
  • Reheating– you can reheat portions in the microwave or in the oven until warmed through.
