Gluten-Free Goddess Maple + Jam Glazed Turkey Meatloaf recipe. Spike it up with jalapeño pepper jam or keep it homespun. Versatile, flavorful recipe. Family favorite.

I have some good news. I mean, besides this delicious gluten-free turkey meatloaf recipe. After eight long weeks of no funny business, yours in gluten-free bliss is humming to the Stereo MC's and shuffling around our one room casita with a walker. 

Yup. I was officially sprung from wheelchair status today! 

Progress with a long o.

High-fiiiive me.

I'm one happy crone tonight. So I'm keeping this short and sweet. Here it is. 

It snowed today. There's a crackling fire in the kiva. A glass of wine awaits- not to mention- one of our favorite comfort food suppers. A slice of my favorite meatloaf and a generous scoop of warm Champagne Vinegar Potato Salad.

Life is good.

Have a safe and tasty weekend!

And be good to your bones.

Karina's Gluten-Free Maple and Jam Glazed Meatloaf Recipe

Use pure maple syrup in this cozy old-fashioned recipe with a twist. My gluten-free meatloaf is easily adapted to your particular likes and dislikes- see notes. It's very flexible in spirit. Kinda like yours truly.

Ingredients:

1 3/4 lbs. organic ground turkey (or grass fed Black Angus beef, ground)
1/2 cup sweet or red onion, diced
1 medium organic carrot, peeled
2-3 cloves fresh peeled garlic
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon gluten-free Worcestershire sauce or balsamic vinegar
1 organic free-range egg- or omit for egg-free
3/4 cup gluten-free bread crumbs (I used Udi's GF sandwich bread)
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste


Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Put the ground turkey into a large bowl and using a fork or spoon, break it apart it a bit.

Toss in the onion.

Roughly chop the carrot into chunks and place them into a food processor; add the garlic cloves; pulse until the veggies are uniformly diced- fine- not too chunky; add them to the ground meat.

Toss lightly with a spoon or fork to quickly distribute the veggies.

Add the maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce or  balsamic vinegar, eggs (if using), gluten-free bread crumbs, and smoked paprika. Mix it all up- but try not to over-mix it into mush (over-mixing makes for a dense loaf).

If the mixture is too dry at this point, add a little ketchup. If it's feels too wet, add more crumbs. You want a nice stick-together balance. Very ying-yang.

Spoon the meatloaf mixture into a standard size loaf pan and firmly press into place, smoothing and rounding the top of the loaf a bit so that the sides are slightly lower than the edge of the loaf pan (you don't want the glaze spilling over the sides later on).

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 45 minutes. At the 45 minute mark spoon the maple-apricot sauce on top of the loaf. Cover the loaf loosely with a piece of recycled foil, if you like. Bake for an additional 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF. Allow the cooked loaf to cool for ten minutes or so before slicing and serving.



Maple + Jam Glaze Recipe


Ingredients:

1/3 cup real maple syrup

1/3 cup pure apricot preserves

1-2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, to taste

1 teaspoon honey mustard



Intructions:

Stir to combine.


Karina's Notes:

Options for subbing the ingredients above include:

Add 1/4 cup chopped roasted green chiles or jalapeños to the loaf mixture if you like the meatloaf spicy.

Use spicy jalapeño pepper jelly for a glaze with some heat.

Use gluten-free chipotle chili powder and salsa for a smoky Mexican taste.

I made this when I was avoiding eggs, so I omitted them; this works if you keep the add-ins diced fine, keep the mixture moist, and allow the loaf to set for 15 minutes before slicing. If you enjoy eggs, add a beaten free-range organic egg to this recipe.

Use an Asian sweet-hot chili sauce for the glaze to kick up the heat.

What to do with leftover meatloaf? Make a meatloaf shepherd's pie with mashed potato crust.
