Homestyle Meatloaf

Sautéed onions, and onion soup mix blend together for a rich and savory meatloaf flavor.


Using a matchstick mandolin is perfect for finely chopping the veggies quickly – and most importantly the same size This ensure they cook at the same rate, and the texture of the meatloaf will be uniform.

Saute the veggies first until tender and onions just start to brown. This is what is going to add a ton of flavor to the meatloaf. HomestyleMeatloaf2

Once the veggies have cooled, mix in with the ground beef and shape into a loaf. HomestyleMeatloaf3

Generously brush the glaze all over the meatloaf and bake until fully cooked. HomestyleMeatloaf4

  1. I actually make my own, so I can control the ingredients that go in it (and saves some money too). Here is what you can use to replace 1 packet of onion soup mix:

    1/4 cup dried onion flakes
    2 Tbsp GF beef bouillon powder
    1/4 tsp onion powder
    1/8 tsp celery seed
    1/8 tsp paprika
    1/8 tsp pepper

  2. I have only been able to find Lipton Onion soup mix which contains caramel coloring. What brand GF onion soup mix is out there?

  3. MAGGI Gluten Free French Onion Soup Mix & Glutino Sans Gluten Free Onion Soup Mix are two brands. If you can’t find these, try making your own from the recipe I added in the above comment.
