Meatloaf recipe suggestions?

I'm having a craving for some meatloaf, and just got overwhelmed when searching for LC meatloaf recipes. Anyone have a tried and true? I'd rather NOT have one with crushed pork rinds, only because I have none on hand, but if it's a MUST, I will.

Here's one I have tried.
Atkins Meatloaf
2 pounds ground beef
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup low carb ketchup
2 eggs
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried cilantro, or 2 tablespoons fresh
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
1/4 cup low carb ketchup
1/4 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
1 1/2 teaspoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda In a large bowl mix all but the Topping ingredients thoroughly. Mix the topping ingredients together in a small bowl. Place the meat in a greased loaf pan, or shape in 6 mini loaves and place in a foil lined 9x13" baking pan. Brush or spread on the topping. Bake at 375║ 45 to 60 minutes for a single large loaf or about 30-35 minutes for the mini loaves or until the internal temperature reads 140-145║.

I make my meatloaf with the same spice mix I did back in the high carb days.......

1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1-1/2 tablespoons dried minced onions
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup heavy cream

But for the filler I use 4 large eggs, beating them well then add 1/4 cup coconut flour. Beat this together until it reaches the consistency of fluffy mashed potatoes, adjusting as needed to get the proper texture.

Mix that into the meat and form your loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

I guess I'm a minimalist, I like to taste the meat.

I make the Atkins one that SooBee posted, that's my favorite. I make it into mini loaves. It has a lot of flavor and is always moist. My husband loves it too. I haven't made it with the topping because I keep forgetting to buy molasses.

I made the recipe that soobee posted but left out the chili powder and cilantro, and used Italian seasoned tomato sauce instead of the ketchup, as it's quite LC and that's what I had on hand. I also heated the sauce and spooned it on top after it was cooked. Best meatloaf I ever had, LB or not! My son and husband thought so too! Also made creamed cheesy cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Perfect comfort dinner!

those sound good .... I made this one recently and it was very good and "stayed together" well :

From Escape from Obesity website ~

Lyn's FAVORITE Meatloaf

2 lbs. extra lean ground beef
8 oz can of tomato sauce
3 T soy sauce (I use low sodium/lite soy sauce)
1 T onion powder
1 T dried parsley
ground black pepper to taste
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 whole eggs (you could use Egg Beaters if you want... I used free range eggs)
1/2 c Parmesan cheese (you want the powdery kind, like Kraft in a can, not shreds. This is the binder).
1 piece of raw bacon (trust me. I used Hormel frozen bacon, 40 calories in 1 slice) cut up as fine as you can

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix everything together in a bowl. I use my hands. Mush it all up good.
Put the mixture into a casserole dish. Smooth the top a bit. Bake uncovered for 1 hour 10 minutes. I checked mine in the center with a meat thermometer (160+). Take it out of the oven and CAREFULLY pour off the fat. Do not hurt yourself. Let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes, then serve. Yummy! (p.s... it does NOT taste like soy sauce. At all. So don't worry about that). Hope you enjoy it!

I use my regular meatloaf recipe and just changed out 1 cup oatmeal for 1/2 cup chia seeds and 1/2 cup almond flour. My family didn't like it when I used an entire cup of chia seeds.

3 lbs ground beef
1 packet onion soup mix
1 egg
1/2 cup chia
1/2 cup almond flour

Mix together and bake at 350 for 1 hr to 1 hr 15 minutes.
