This can be made carnivore, ketovore, or just straight up keto if you wish. Remember, I am not a professional cook, I am just sharing how I make this for our family. Feel free to modify. I write recipes in the order of how I do things. This recipe makes about 10 servings. Find APPROXIMATED macros at the bottom of this recipe. This recipe makes around 10 servings unless you live with Ken Berry… then 5 servings 😂

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • 3 lbs. of ground meat in large glass bowl : I used 1 lb. veal, 1 lb. kobe beef, and 1 lb. ground lamb. This can be any kind of ground meat. I have used venison, cheap ground meat, grass-fed beef, lamb, and a combination of meats before. You can also throw some liver in there too without your family noticing!
  • 6 oz of grated parmesan ( you can use any cheese, this is just what we prefer, you can also leave the cheese out if you are sensitive to dairy. )
  • 1 cup of chopped onion ( you can leave onion out or use less if you are sensitive or are keeping carbs SUPER low )
  • 1 cup pork panko (you can crush up your own pork rinds to make panko or use these from amazon : )
  • 1/2 cup of coconut aminos I use Bragg’s since it’s lower carb than most ( or you can just use salt to taste for ZERO carbs)
  • 3 medium eggs (at least 3 eggs )
  • if you are wanting to make a more traditional meatloaf, primal kitchen ketchup ( ) is a great alternative to mix into the meat and put on top as well, you should probably water it down a bit as it is very thick and it will go farther ( it’s a bit pricey )
  • you could also add more seasoning if you like, I add garlic usually ( about 2 tbsp minced but to keep it lowest carbs possible, leave out )
  • mix all of these ingredients WELL using your hands and place into preferred dish ( I use this large glass casserole dish from William Sonoma : )
  • sprinkle a layer of parm on top (leave off if dairy free)
  • cover top of loaf with thin bacon strips. I used 9 pieces of Pederson’s uncured no sugar added bacon ( some people cook the bacon first and then place it on after meatloaf is done, that is totally fine, I do it this way so the bacon fat seeps down into the meat. )
  • place in oven for 1 HOUR on 400
  • after one hour place on broil at 550 for 5 min to crisp bacon.
  • When you remove loaf from oven you will see A LOT of fat, this is completely fine. You can lift the meat out easily and leave the fat if you wish or spoon it over your meat for a little extra tasty fat.

    This is a big hit in my house! It’s hard to make ketovore freezer meals, but this works great! I’ve had some extended family taste this and LOVE it even though they don’t eat low carb 🙂
    Maybe one day I’ll add some pureed liver. I used to add it to my meatloaf and meatballs, I don’t know why I stopped!

  • Carl

    Hi Neisha,
    I was avoiding meatloaf because the one Mum made when I was little was awful. I finally tried it tonight and it is truly amazing, delicious and satisfying. Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe!

    • neishalovesit

      So happy to hear that you enjoyed it!

  • Janette Springer

    Well I used the meat on hand and just went for it. 2 pounds hamburger and 1 pound sausage with cheese, bacon and primal ketchup inside. We will see how I did but i am more interested in lamb, bison and veal with a little liver since i add that to so many things. Thank you for sharing and giving me new ideas. God Bless You and Your family! Please tell Dr. B our son is doing Keto and he has GPA I know is it making a difference.
