The secret to a moist, flavorful meatloaf is using a panade (bread soaked in milk or stock) so I am replacing the bread to crushed Rice Chex cereal and replacing the milk with almond, coconut or cashew milk. This is an old fashioned style meatloaf with catsup and simple ingredients, recalling meat loaves of the last century. The mini loaf pans make it cook in less time and makes a generous plate presentation. Gluten-free
