Gluten Free Slow Cooker Scottish Meatloaf Recipe

What? Scottish Meatloaf? Why in the world would I want to make SCOTTISH meatloaf?!, you say. Well, it’s AMAZING. It’s easy to make, and it’s Gluten Free, which means I can have it! It may sound odd now, but Gluten Free Slow Cooker Scottish Meatloaf may just change your life, and it will certainly be one of your go-to crockpot favorites. As you well know, I love anything tied to my beloved Scottish heritage or Scotland. In celebrating Robert Burns’ Birthday (aka Burns’ Night) I was looking for a dish idea to substitute for the all-important haggis.The haggis plays a huge part in a Burns’ Night dinner; since a REAL Haggis is hard to come by in America, and I wasn’t sure how well my kids would react to offal, I was looking for a dish that was authentic in Scottish flavor but wouldn’t involve me procuring and preparing sheep innards. Several versions of Scottish Meatloaf surfaced during my search and I formed my personal recipe through experimenting and combining elements of the recipes I liked the best.

Gluten-Free Sausage Balls Recipe

Face it… sometimes we just want something warm, savory, and satisfying for a snack. Sometimes we want to make something that even the men will love if they’re forced to attend a baby shower, or a quick and easy appetizer to bring to a tailgate or family get-together. A Southern staple at so many of these gatherings include “sausage balls”, which (for the uninitiated) is a small, spherical biscuit with cheese and ground sausage baked into it, and they are absolute heaven. I’ve seen them at Christmas brunches, bridal showers, tailgates, card nights, and just about any other event I can think of here in the South, and I’ve also been known to bake a surplus of these bad boys to freeze for breakfasts on crazy mornings before school. One BIG problem I ran into is that Bisquick, a central ingredient in Sausage Balls, contains Gluten, and I realized that Gluten and I didn’t get along about five years ago that I was also giving up Sausage Balls among other things. I was walking through Target awhile back and I miraculously saw GLUTEN-FREE BISQUICK sitting on the shelf with baking goods and I realized that not only could I make…

Deliciously Unhealthy Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

You know, sometimes you just have to make a treat so incredibly decadent that you can barely eat a whole piece in one sitting, and that’s exactly what this recipe will do for you. Based off a recipe for the chocolate cake that so many of us remember eating in the lunchroom at school or cafeteria-type establishments (I’m looking at you, Morrison’s) growing up, I altered the recipe a relative gave me to make a Deliciously Unhealthy Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. Eating this cake after I made it was like opening a time portal to being a kid again, only I modified it so that my Gluten-sensitive tendencies wouldn’t drag me back into the present and leave me miserable for a week. You’re going to want, no NEED, to bake this simple recipe and let your kids experience the amazingness that we grew up with, but would now be considered way too unhealthy to be served in the health-conscious lunchrooms of today. You’re going to need Eggs, a ton of Butter (no, really), Gluten-Free Baking Flour, Powdered Sugar, Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, Vanilla, Sugar, Salt and Milk to make the cake and icing. Measure out the correct amounts of ingredients for…
