Meatloaf is one of those dinner recipes I feel most of us were fed often as kids. As an adult, I don’t make it often enough! It’s perfect for dinner, reheats well for leftovers and meal prep, and is downright delicious!

Meatloaf is definitely perfect for the keto diet and lifestyle, it’s paleo friendly, too! The main ingredient in meatloaf is ground beef, which has no carbs and is carb-free. I like to eat organic, grass-fed beef, as it provides a healthier alternative. I get my beef from Thrive Market or Butcher Box. Both have online delivery and amazing pricing.

How to Make Keto Meatloaf

The key to good meatloaf lies in the seasoning and what you use to bind it. It will need to be properly bound to prevent it from falling apart.

  1. Sautee onions and garlic with butter in a skillet.
  2. Add garlic, onions, eggs, almond flour, parsley, Italian Seasoning, paprika, Worcestershire,  salt, and pepper to a large bowl with ground beef.
  3. Break down the beef and combine the ingredients.
  4. Add the beef to a loaf pan and bake.
  5. Cool before serving.

How to Bulk it Up and Replace Breadcrumbs

My favorite method is to use almond flour. You can use something like pork rinds as well. Coconut flour may be used too, but almond flour yields much better results.

How Much Almond Flour to Use

I like to use 1/2 cup of blanched almond flour. Make sure the almond flour is fine and blanched.

How Long to Cook and Bake

You should cook the meatloaf until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees. In total, meatloaf will need about an hour to bake.

Recipe Tips

  • Ground turkey can be used in this recipe if desired. The cook time will remain the same.
  • Lean ground beef can be used in this recipe if desired. If you use lean ground beef there will be a lot less fat to drain from the meatloaf.
  • You can save time by making meatloaf muffins or 4 smaller loaves that will only require 30-40 minutes to bake.
  • Add a little heat by adding a little hot sauce or Sriracha!
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated up to 4 days.

Ingredients

Meatloaf Glaze

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add the butter, onions, and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the onions become soft and fragrant. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • Add the ground beef to a large bowl with all of the ingredients including the cooked onions and garlic. (excluding the glaze ingredients).
  • Use a silicone spatula to break down the meat and combine the ingredients. You can also use your hands. Ensure the meat is coated in all of the seasonings and ingredients, but don’t overwork the meat. If you overwork the meat the meatloaf is more likely to fall apart after baking.
  • Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper. Add the meat mixture to the pan. Shape the meat in the pan, pay close attention to the edges, and smooth with a silicone spatula or spoon.
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • While the meatloaf bakes combine all of the ingredients for the glaze in a medium bowl. Stir well to combine.
  • After 40 minutes, remove the meatloaf from the oven. You can choose to drain any excess fat. I drained about half of the fat and left half of it to soak in the meat for flavor. Spread the glaze over the top. The mixture will create a thick layer on top.
  • Return the loaf pan to the oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to test the inside of the loaf and ensure it has reached an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees. Examine the edges of the meatloaf to ensure the edges are fully cooked.
  • Allow the meatloaf to cool and rest for at least 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. I allow mine to rest for about 20 minutes. The meat will need to rest before you slice into it.
  • Use a serrated bread knife to slice the meatloaf, this will prevent it from falling apart as you slice it.

Notes

  • Ground turkey can be used in this recipe if desired. The cook time will remain the same.
  • Lean ground beef can be used in this recipe, if desired. If you use lean ground beef there will be a lot less fat to drain from the meatloaf.
  • Almond flour is a different texture than breadcrumbs, which are used in standard meatloaf recipes. You likely will notice a difference in texture. Be sure to use blanched almond flour.

This was so good! I was out of almond flour so I used ground pork rinds in its place and it still turned out fine. I paired this with your mashed cauli. Perfect pairing!

My first time making and eating meatloaf and there is no going back. Juicy, flavorful, and filling this was a HUGE win in my household. My picky french husband went back for thirds and gave it 2 thumbs up - this recipe will become a WEEKLY staple. Thank you so so much!!
