Keto Meatloaf

I like Keto meatloaf but decided I wanted it lighter so amended this recipe by using turkey mince. It was tender and the Italian flavour was wonderful. I criss-crossed bacon strips across the top and the sides which helped with both flavour and tenderness. I had meatloaf with broccoli and salad but I was so eager to eat it, I forgot to take the final photo! I also had it in a Keto roll with mayo for lunch the next day…and the day after, sliced thinly and piled onto the roll. Try it and enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 oz tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce 
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 lb mince beef (I used turkey mince instead)
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free tomato sauce (optional)

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the mince and tomato sauce (if using).
  • Once combined, add the mince and mix until fully incorporated. Note: Avoid overmixing.
  • Next, transfer the mixture into an oven-proof dish and form into a loaf shape.
  • Note: I layered the top of my meatloaf with slices of bacon.
  • Bake for around 30 minutes.
  • Next, if using spread the tomato sauce on top of the meatloaf.
  • Return to the oven and bake for 25-45 more minutes, or until cooked through and internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). (Time will vary depending on thickness of the loaf.)
  • Once cooked, allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Cut carefully into slices using a serrated bread knife.
