This Potato Chip Meatloaf is a Gluten Free hearty dinner idea!
Why Potato Chips?
The other day my husband requested a “hearty meal”! The first thing that came to mind was meatloaf. It’s hearty and filling! The only problem is I have to find a way to make all of our meals gluten free.
All the meatloaf recipes that I’ve seen always call for bread crumbs. So I came up with the alternative!
I used potato chips instead of breadcrumbs and it worked great. It doesn’t change the flavor if you use regular potato chip. On the contrary it actually adds a nice amount of additional salt and flavor.
Just from personal preference, I would use a thin potato chip like Lay’s Classic. Use the plain variety, unless you want to be very adventurous and add some BBQ flavor! LOL!
Making Your Meatloaf Gluten Free
The only thing I would note to be careful of, is that if you are using this as a gluten free alternative please check the ingredients first. If you are on a GF diet for medical or nutritional reason, we all know that gluten can be hidden in things that you wouldn’t assume should have it — like potato chips! Look for the GF indicator on any store-bought items prior to purchasing.
The best part of this recipe is that it adds great flavors to the meat loaf, no need for added seasoning. Hope you enjoy this Meatloaf Recipe!
