Cheddar Meatloaf Blobs. Yes, blobs!

This is my take on recipe # 59056 from www.food.com.  There are several gluten-free recipes on that site now.....but you won't like all of them.  I struggle with recipes that have very little nutritional value when it's a ton of starches and little or no flours...so watch for that if you check them out.

CHEDDAR MEATLOAF BLOBS - this doubles easily!  Use 10x15 pan if doubling.  I always use glass.....

1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup g-free quick oats
1 egg
3/4 cup milk (I often use plain unsweetened almond milk)
4 ounces shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. (kosher) salt
1/2 tsp. crushed thyme, more or less to taste

Combine onions through thyme and add:
1 pound lean ground beef (ground round works best)

Using a 7x11 pan (or something close) form six mounded rounds of meat; try to keep them from touching, if possible.  Combine the following three ingredients and spoon sauce over the top of each blob til completely covered.

2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 C. (loose, not packed) brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. prepared mustard

Bake, uncovered, about 45 minutes.  Allow to cool 10 minutes or so.

This is the favorite meatloaf here...which means never throwing any away!
