Bacon Topped Meatloaf

29 Apr

I’ve never made a meatloaf before but after I saw Nom Nom Paleo Super Porktastic Bacon-Topped Spinach and Mushroom Meatloaf recipe, I finally decided to give it a try. Since I didn’t have most of the ingredients, I ended up subbing majority of them and in the end created my own bacon topped meatloaf version. 🙂

Bacon Topped Meatloaf (adapted from Nom Nom Paleo)
About 1.3lb grass fed ground beef
2 green onion stalks
3-4 garlic cloves
1 shallot
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup of Mushroom Gravy
2 eggs
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut cream
1 cup of chopped cabbage
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Mince the garlic, onions and shallot (I used my newly purchased Magic Bullet) – well mine turned into a puree instead.

2. Puree the chopped green onions with the coconut cream

No coconut cream? You can use coconut milk or hack your own (like me :D)
Refrigerate coconut milk for overnight.
Scoop out the top layer (careful, don’t scoop the liquid part)
Whip it using your hand mixer with whisk attachment

3. Mix all the ingredients to the ground beef. Season accordingly.

4. I cooked a small patty on the pan to determine the taste.

5. Fill the meat mixture into a nonstick 9”x 5” loaf pan

6. Line the bacon strips on top of it. (I used Trader Joe’s brand Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon)

7. Bake for 1 hour in 350°F

8. Set to broil for another 5-7 minutes to crisp up the bacon strips

9. Remove from the oven. Drain off the excess liquid – careful don’t let the meatloaf slide out from the pan or your entire effort will be wasted!

10. Let it cool a bit before transferring it to a plate.

This meatloaf tastes even better when eaten together with Trader Joe’s Hot Chipotle Salsa sauce!

It’s Paleo friendly as well.
Diced tomatoes, tomato puree (water, tomato paste), cider vinegar, onions, chipotle chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, cilantro, red peppers.

It might not look as pretty and neat as Nom Nom Paleo’s, but tastes amazing! My version was a bit crumbly probably due to the Mushroom Gravy Sauce. Well at least I figured out how to finish off the last batch without wasting it 😀

Feel free to sub the ground beef with any protein of your choice! As usual, enjoy!
