These single-serve meatloaves are made with rice rather than bread or breadcrumbs, so they are gluten free. A great way to use leftover rice.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.

    Advertisement
  • Mix ground beef, rice, parsley, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a bowl; form into 4 oblong mini-loaves. Season the outside of each loaf generously with pepper. Arrange loaves in the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 35 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each loaf should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over low heat; saute onion in oil until soft and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Season onion with 1 pinch salt; serve over meat loaves.

Cook's Note:

These may turn out a little dry if you use low-fat ground beef. Try adding 1/4 cup tomato sauce, bbq sauce, or ketchup.

We really enjoyed these. I doubled the recipe and replaced 1/2lb of beef with pork because I needed to use up the pork. I loved using the brown rice instead of bread crumbs. I used a whole lot of black pepper and it was great. The fried onions were a nice touch. I usually like some kind of tomato flavour with my meatloaf but I didn't miss it here. Thanks Joyce. This recipe is a keeper! Read More

This recipe looks great. I'm going to make it today. Just a note though...Worcestershire Sauce delicious and fragrant as it is is not gluten free. I only mention this in case people are staying 100% way from gluten for health reasons. Read More

This recipe is delicious and free of so many allergens. No gluten and no dairy. I also substituted half of the ground beef with ground pork. I used the leanest ground beef I could find and it was still very juicy and good. The grilled onions on top make it extra tasty. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I think this is my new favorite meatloaf recipe found here on Allrecipes. I wasn't sure if I would like the cooked brown rice as an ingredient but it worked wonderfully! I liked that it did NOT use a sugary "ketchupy" (I know it's not a real word) or gravy topping. The fried onions make a perfect tasty topping. I doubled the recipe and like other reviewers I used half pork and half beef. I also used a standard muffin tin and formed 12 meatloaf muffins. Terrific recipe! I will come back to this one. Thanks Joyce for submitting your recipe. Read More

I gave it 5 stars because it was a very easy and tasty recipe to make. Of course you can alter anything to make it more or less whatever you'd like. But this recipe is great as is! Read More
