Allergy Free Fun Fridays!

Probably every week I make a meatloaf.  I don't recall loving meatloaf as a kid, but I certainly do as a Mom! Meatloaf can hide a multitude of healthy, nutritious veggies and the kids will never know!  My family (teens too!) love my meatloaf and it is one of my go to recipes when bringing a meal to others.


1 1/2 - 2 lbs ground beef, or turkey or pork, or meatloaf mix
1 c. rolled oats (or 1c. spelt flakes or GF flakes)
1/2 c. water
2 tsp. Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 avocado, chopped and smashed
1 stalk celery, finely chopped, include celery leaves too for extra flavor
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 egg (optional, but does hold together better with it)

Other healthy addition options: 1 carrot finely chopped, 1/4 bell pepper finely chopped, 1/4 c. chopped fresh or frozen creative and have fun!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix everything together in a bowl.  Place in greased loaf pan.  Cook at least 1 hour or til center is no longer pink.
