Gluten-free Mini Turkey Meatloaves
Mary Cooley, dining services director at this continuing care retirement community, says this recipe was created to satisfy the small but growing number of residents who for one reason or another wanted to avoid gluten in their diets. The recipe switches out bread crumbs and uses a ground rice cereal as the binder, notes Cooley, adding that the idea came from one of the residents.
