Meatloaf ?

Please share with me (and all) your favorite meatloaf recipe.

In the good old (really, BAD OLD) days, mine had Stove Top Stuffing mix and BBQ sauce...

I'd love to get some great LC recipes


Thank you!

Mine is never the same twice. It starts with the basics: ground beef, sausage, eggs, spices. Then I start throwing in whatever I have on hand. My kids really like it with cheese in it and bacon strips laid over the top.

I use the Atkins meatloaf and I LOVE it! Here it is:

3 lbs.ground beef (or a mixture if you like- I never have 3 lbs, closer to 2)
2 T chili powder
3 eggs (have made with 2 though and it's fine)
3 cloves garlic, pressed
3 T cilantro
6 oz. shredded cheddar
2 T worcestershire sauce
salt to taste

Mix it all together and plop in a Pam'd loaf pan.

Combine:

1/2 cup lc ketchup
1/4 cup Diabetisweet brown sugar sub (or 1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses and 1/4 cup splenda)

Top meatloaf with ketchup mixture and bake for about an hour or so at 375. If you use less meat, it cooks quicker.

I serve this with faux mashed taters (cauliflower) and veggies. YUM!

I made a really good one a couple weeks back. We had fire-roasted some tomatillos, onion, garlic, jalapeno, and tomato to make salsa. I had half the onion and lots of garlic left, and lots of fire in the BBQ, and I had just ground up a bunch of brisket for ground beef and patties. I took 2 pounds of that, added 1 egg, a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, some of the garlic cloves, minced, half the fireroasted onion, a good handful of raw wheat bran, a splash of cream, and some crushed dried oregano. Blended that all together (with my hands) and shaped into a loaf on a foil pan, and put it in the BBQ and covered it. MAN that made the best meat loaf! After about 40 minutes the fire was out so I figured I'd just put the meatloaf in the oven to finish, but stuck it with the digital thermometer and it was already at 165* so called it DONE. DH, who normally is not the world's biggest meatloaf fan, wants me to do it that way from now on!

I served it with the fireroasted salsa and it was totally delicious.

Mine is probably never the same twice. I do ground beef, spices, egg, a little lc milk and then the rest depends on what I have one hand (onion, green pepper, garlic, shredded cheese, etc) then I add some low carb ketchup to the top.

I save the ends from my low carb breads (there's a really good "double wheat" variety at the store 10 carbs, five of them fiber), toast them up and crush them when cooled. Enough to get a cup of crumbs. Mix with meat and seasonings and bake as usual.

I make meatloaf often. one of my favoire meals all my life. I don't have an exact recipe. I just throw stuff together. I make mine with 2-3 lbs of ground beef, I add an egg, ground pork rinds (about a cup), grated parmassian (about a half cup maybe), low carb ketchup (about 1/2 cup), cream (I don't know I just pour it in..maybe 1/4 cup),diced peppers and onions (celery sometimes too), salt & pepper. I throw it in a glass baking dish and cook for 45-1hr (depending on size). It comes out very tasty. One of our favoiret meals.

In the summer instead of baking in the oven I make patties out of the meatloaf and cook them in a fry pan. They come out good too. i do this in the winter sometimes too if I am in a hurry. They cook fast as patties in a fry pan with a cover on them

Here is the one I use... It is from George Stella..... Our family likes it (I don't like meatloaf but do like this)



[COLOR=DarkRed]Low-Carb Beefed-Up Meat Loaf[/COLOR]

Tomato Topping:
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1/4 cup sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
2 teaspoons white vinegar or water

2 pounds ground chuck (may use meat loaf mix with ground pork)
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup red onion, diced small
1/4 cup roasted or fresh red bell peppers, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 pound prosciutto, or any type of ham, thinly sliced
1/4 pound provolone cheese, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix together the tomato topping ingredients. Set aside. You may add a few drops of water to thin to a ketchup consistency.
In a large bowl, mix together the beef, eggs, Parmesan, vegetables, herbs, and seasonings.
Working on a waxed paper lined sheet pan or counter, form meatloaf mix into a 10 by 8-inch flat rectangle on the waxed paper. Place a layer of prosciutto slices on top, followed by a layer of provolone slices. Roll up the stuffed meatloaf mix like a burrito and seal the edges all around by pinching the meat.
Place the roll, seam side down, into a 5 by 9-inch loaf pan. Spread a heavy coat of the tomato topping to completely cover the top of the meatloaf. Place in oven and bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the temperature on a meat thermometer registers 165 degrees F. Drain fat and let rest at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Nina,

That sounds awesome! I bet it'd be great with beef, too
I have a whole container of cilantro in my fridge waiting for a good use.
I will make this soon!

Thanks

I just use parmesan cheese for the "carby" stuff, in my recipe, rolled oats, and we love the results.

You will be surprised at the delicious results, know I was!

Mine are never the same either but I will give you an idea of what I like in them.

veggie puree - literally anything youve got in the fridge. this is a great way to use up any leftovers. toss it in the food processor with onion and garlic and any fresh herbs you want to use. dont forget chiles too if you have any!

combo of gound beef, sweet italian sausage and spicy italian sausage

1 egg

handful of parm cheese

worcestershire sauce

Heinz 1 carb ketchup

spoonful of spicy mustard

salt & pepper

Normally I make meatloaf with everything but the breadcrumbs, but I'm experimenting with using flaxmeal now. You don't want to use a whole lot of it, but it's doing a nice job.

I have made mine with two or three slices of low carb bread, but honestly, it doesn't make that much difference. So now I just leave it out.

4 lb. Ground Beef, usually 80% lean
3 eggs
1 tsp. Worstershire
1 tsp. minced garlic
Seasonings: Bay Leaf and thyme, OR oregano and basil OR 1 tsp beef Better than Bouillion plus onion powder and dried minced onion

Bake at 350* until done. I usually pour an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce over it when it's almost done. I freeze individual slices so I can have meatloaf anytime.

Just made meatloaf last night for company and everyone loved it. Had roasted rosemary red taters (for everyone else) and a loaded salad w/ homemade dressing. I threw a serrano in the veggie puree and it gave it a great kick!
