If there is such a thing… that’s what I’m making right now. A quick little meatloaf.
I’ll be heading out of town for a dog show this weekend. On the road means being more conscientious about a) trying to eat reasonably healthy, and b) accommodating my gluten allergy.
One of the things I try to do to address both those areas is to BYOF – bring my own food. Roadtripping makes this a little easier. As does having a microwave and fridge in my hotel room.
So – right now I’ve got a little meatloaf in the oven. I’ll portion it up into meals and then can easily reheat when needed this weekend. (Or eat cold – YUM!)
Here’s my quick meatloaf recipe. This addresses my gluten allergy issues. If you have celiacs, you’ll want to make sure you use uncontaminated oats.
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of oats
2 tablespoons of onion flakes
1/2 cup of milk (I use almond milk)
3 tablespoons of gluten free flour (I used a gf gravy mix for this one… I thought the flavour might add a little more body)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2) Throw everything in a bowl and mix with hands to combine. I don’t like to over mix.
3) Shape into a log and put on one of those broiler pans that comes with (or used to come with your oven). I spray the top with a Pam, and put foil underneath for quick clean up.
4) Slather the top with some ketchup. You can mix in a little brown sugar into there as well, but I don’t.
5) Bake for one hour.
I let mine cool and sit overnight in the fridge, and then I slice into portions.
Ready for the road!
Do you have a go-to meal that you use for camping, or road-tripping? I’d love to hear your ideas!
