Low Carb Meatloaf

Meatloaf1

Meatloaf, oh meatloaf how I love thee. You are not beautiful, in fact you’re down right ugly, but they way you comfort my belly is like no other. What is it about your old fashion ways? Your alliance with the 1950′s housewife and the memories you have created for many of us? How could such an ugly creature be so lovely? We had to give you up when my son went ketogenic, but you are back! Yes, you are back! I adapted you from the recipe that my mother used growing up, it was in her recipe box, with her handwriting–the yellowing card with red stains and juice marks, that’s almost falling apart from use over the years. Here you are in your low carb version.

How to make Low Carb Meatloaf

 

Low Carb Meatloaf Recipe

 

What you’ll need

1 T. olive oil
1 medium red onion minced
3 garlic cloves minced
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup of milk
2 t. of spicy mustard
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. sea salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 t. smokey Tabasco
2 lbs. of ground grass fed beef
1/2 cup of Low Carb Bread Crumbs

Sauce
1/2 cup of Low Carb Ketchup
1 T. black strap molasses
1 T. of Erthyitol
4 t. of apple cider vinegar

How To Make It

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

While onions are cooling, mix up sauce in a small bowl: Ketchup, Molasses, Erthyitol, and vinegar.

In a large bowl mix the meat, eggs, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, salt , pepper, Tabasco, mustard, soy sauce, milk and onions. I use rubber gloves and mix it up with my hands–be sure to throughly mix all of the ingredients.

Place the meatloaf mixture onto a parchment lined baked sheet and form into loaf. Brush with half of the Sauce (use extra for serving)- Bake for 45-50 minutes. Serves 6-8 people.

  1. I don’t think I’ve made meatloaf in our entire married life, but I was actually craving it lately (pregnancy thing?) and wondering if my daughter would eat it. Looks yummy to me, even if meatloaf is downright ugly! :)

  2. I know it’s not pretty, but it sure looks delicious!!!! I haven’t made meatloaf for a while…it’s on the menu for next week! I think it’s pretty awesome how you are taking family favorites and making low carb options for your family and all families that can benefit from this!!! You are amazing.

  3. You know what? I don’t think that I’ve ever had meatloaf! Can you believe it? I’m so glad that you were able to adapt your recipe and it can be a part of your meals again!! You are amazing.

  9. We love meatloaf! It was actually requested to go on the meal plan this week. When I grew up, my parents always made it with a ton of saltines. Now, I use about 1/2 cup of panko instead.
