Author: Gluten Free & More


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 slices soft gluten-free bread or 1 cup gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 1 ¼ pounds lean ground turkey or beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium onion peeled
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free barbecue sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Brush 12 cups of a standard muffin pan with olive oil.
  • Place the bread in a blender and pulse until it turns into bread crumbs. (Omit this step if using already prepared breadcrumbs.) Pour into a large mixing bowl. Add the turkey or beef, egg, 1/3 cup barbecue sauce, salt, and pepper. With the large holes of a box grater, grate the onion into the mixture. Mix to combine. Do not over mix. Place about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture into each prepared muffin tin and gently press down to fill. Top each with 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the meat loaves are cooked through. Run a dinner knife around the edges of the muffin tins, remove the meat loaves from the pan, and serve.
