Keto Meatloaf Recipe
Even when keto, meatloaf can be tender, hearty, and full of flavor. This recipe uses a mix of ground beef and chorizo and swaps out breadcrumbs for pork rinds.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 1pound ground beef
- 1pound chorizo, or Italian sausage
- 1cup pork rinds, ground into crumbs
- ½cup grated Parmesan cheese
- ¼cup milk
- 2tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ½teaspoon salt
- ½teaspoon pepper
- ½cup chopped onion
- 3cloves garlic, minced
- ½pound thin-sliced bacon
- ⅓cup tomato sauce
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine the ground beef, sausage, and pork rinds in a large bowl. Mix until the ingredients are evenly distributed, but make sure not to overmix or else the meat will be tough.
Step 3Whisk together the egg, Parmesan cheese, milk, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
Step 4Pour the egg mixture over the meat mixture. Add in the onion and garlic. Combine until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Step 5Form the meat mixture into a loaf shape.
Step 6Wrap the meatloaf with the strips of bacon.
Step 7Carefully pick up the meatloaf and place it on a cooling rack over an aluminum foil-wrapped baking sheet. Pour the tomato sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
Step 8Bake in the preheated oven uncovered for 1 hour or until the top is caramelized and the internal temperature is 165 F. You can increase the temperature to 375 F for the last 5 minutes to further caramelize the top and crisp up the bacon.
Step 9Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Slice and serve immediately with your favorite keto sides, like mashed cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.
