“This one is a KEEPER, y’all!! Since I found @fatissmartfuel bone broth powders the flavor of my food has been over the top unmatched. This stuff is packed full of collagen, protein, vitamins and nutrients while being carb and sugar free. Win - win - win. Yes, that’s an office reference. If you get it, we need to be friends 😜.” -Rachel Thompson (follow her @dogsandketo)
Rachel kind of said it all—this keto meatloaf IS a keeper—but we'll share a few things anyway.
Meatloaf is a classic comfort-food recipe. Perfect for a lazy Sunday meal or when you're having guests over, and also great for making a lot of protein in a short amount of time.
Most meatloaf recipes, though, are made with breadcrumbs, which jack up the carb count and make them not-so-keto-friendly.
Our recipe uses high-fat and high-protein ingredients like FBOMB Bone Broth, Italian sausage, and pork rinds (yes, pork rinds!) to set it apart. The end result is a delicious meal that feels like home… without any of the carbs.
- FBOMB Bone Broth
- Ground turkey
- Spicy Italian sausage
- Pork rinds
- Sugar-free ketchup
Tips for Making Meatloaf
Here are a few tips for making a great meatloaf:
- Don't squish the ground turkey together. Like hamburger patties, it's always best to gently massage the ingredients when making a meatloaf. This helps the meat cook evenly and ensure the maximum amount of juices stay in the meat, which is where you want them!
- Combine meats for added flavor. This recipe uses Italian sausage and ground turkey. Different fat profiles of the meat help add flavor and texture to the meatloaf that make the end result that much tastier. (Try this tip for burgers, too!)
- Distribute the spices evenly. Don't overwork the meat when mixing it, but make sure the spices get all around the meat. Simple enough, right?
- Let it cool before cutting. The temperature of a fully-cooked meatloaf is, well, hot. Let your meatloaf sit for at least 10 minutes before cutting and serving so all the juices can settle. It also makes cutting much easier!
- Change it up. Try making this recipe with mini meatloaf pans, or even put them in individual muffin trays. Your meatloaf doesn't have to look like one big meatloaf!
