Simple Seitan Meatloaf

Some may think this plant-based meatloaf is more authentic than the oat-based one I shared a while back. I like both but this is much quicker to make because there are less steps.

This is a seitan-based meatloaf. Made from grounding up my beef meat substitute. You may make your Italian breadcrumbs by adding some salt and Italian seasoning to your breadcrumbs. I also make my own barbeque sauce for the topping. This recipe is especially easy if all your ingredients are already made or bought; so, plan ahead!

Now, without further ado, enjoy the recipe below!
