Ingredients

Meatloaf Ingredients

  • 1 TB butter
  • ½ medium onion, minced
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 lbs ground beef, (I like 80/20)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 TB Braggs Aminos
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 TB coconut flour
  • 1 TB heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ tsp Worcester sauce
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 8-10 slices bacon (to cover the top of the meatloaf)
  • Freshly Chopped parsley for topping

Topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Saute the onion and garlic in butter until translucent over medium heat.
  • In a bowl, combine onion and garlic with eggs, salt, pepper, oregano, heavy whipping cream, Worcestershire sauce, Braggs, mozzarella cheese, coconut flour, and Parmesan Cheese.
  • Add ground beef then shape into a large loaf. Place on a baking rack or cooking cooling rack set over top of a baking sheet.
  • Wrap the top of the meatloaf with bacon. Do not overlap the bacon. Barely tuck your bacon slices underneath the meatloaf, so it doesn’t curl. If you overlap the bacon, that part won’t brown.
  • Add the ingredients of the topping in a small bowl and stir until combined. Brush ½ of the glaze on top of the meatloaf.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, then spread the remaining glaze and bake for approx. 15 more min or until a digital thermometer reads 160°F.
  • Allow the meatloaf to rest approx. 10 min before slicing. (Tent with aluminum foil if the bacon starts to brown too much. If it isn’t brown enough, move to the top shelf and broil for 1-2 minutes.)

Notes

The sugar alcohols from the Lakanto Monkfruit Golden are not included in the carb count because most subtract to calculate net carbs. 

Keto meatloaf tips:

    1. Make sure to wait for your meatloaf to cool a bit before slicing, so it does not fall apart. A serrated knife is best for this.
    2. Form your meatloaf ahead of time or even the night before and let it sit covered in the fridge if you want to make this in advance! This will also allow the flavors to get to know each other better.
    3. Don't over mix your meatloaf mixture.
    4. Make sure to use ground beef with at least 15% fat for a juicier meatloaf.
    5. You can add pork rinds to your mixture to act as another binder, but it does not bind as well as flour does.
    6. Use a loaf pan to help shape your meatloaf. Just place parchment paper in a loaf pan then lift out the meat mixture once it is shaped. Be careful not to pack it! It should be loosely formed. 
    7. Using a broiler pan has become my favorite cooking method that gives a crispier texture. Make sure to spray the top pan with cooking spray and cover the inside pan with aluminum foil to make it easier to clean.
    8. Use a digital thermometer to accurately determine when it is done. Your meatloaf internal temperature should read 160 degrees F.
