This easy recipe for gluten free slow cooker meatloaf is a great way to use hamburger. It makes a healthy dinner option in your crockpot. I love a simple meal using ground beef! This is the best gluten free meatloaf I've had.



3 pounds Ground Beef
1 medium Yellow Onion, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1/2 cup Gluten Free Bread Crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
2 large Eggs
4 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
1 tsp. Sea Salt
2 tsp. Dried Basil
1 tsp. Coarse Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp. Dried Oregano
2 tsp. Dried Parsley
1/2 cup Ketchup


In a large mixing bowl mix together the ground beef, onion, garlic, rice crumbs, parmesan cheese, egg, tomato paste, salt, basil, pepper, oregano and parsley until all the ingredients are combined. I use my hands to mix the ingredients together, but you could use a large spoon.

Place the ground beef mixture in the pan of your slow cooker and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.

At 2 1/2 hours check the temperature of the meatloaf using a meat thermometer. The finished meatloaf needs to be at least 170 degrees. Cooking time will vary by slow cooker type and size.

When the meatloaf is done spread the ketchup over the top before serving.


You can use either gluten free dried bread crumbs or rice crumbs. I like to use the dried rice crumbs from Trader Joe's.
