Grandma’s Best Gluten-Free Meatloaf – with a TWIST

Winters can be long here in Montana – which is why this is the “Season of Comfort Food”

We use our Oatmeal in place of the saltine crackers in Grandma’s recipe. This hearty recipe contains all the Love, but it’s healthier with more protein, fiber and B-Vitamins. And bonus… much less sodium.

      Yes! Thanks for pointing that out. 3/4 of a cup of Oatmeal. Also, we’ve started using 1/2 & 1/2 ground bison and ground turkey. Delicious.
