Sometimes you get an urge for a particular dish. With me it was meatloaf. I got it into my head that I had to have it, but of course I wanted it to be low carb.
There are several excellent recipes for meatloaf that is compatible with a low carb diet – you don’t need to go very far to find them!
In my case I adapted a recipe from Ditch the Carbs, which is one of my “go to” low carb recipe sites.
My local supermarket didn’t have any pork mince, so I made my meatloaf with a combination of mince beef and mince turkey meat. Also as I was only cooking for myself I reduced the quantities quite a bit, though I did keep two eggs, as I felt that the mix needed them.
Also in order to make the mix into a loaf shape I used a silicone loaf mold pan.
Here’s a couple of shots to show how well it turned out:
The cooking time of about 50 minutes was fine, but I reduced the temperature about half-way through cooking to around 150 degrees centigrade, as I was concerned that the bacon would get burnt.
I put a grated carrot in the meat mix as well as some grated cheese. The end result, pictured above, was fantastic. I served it with some cauliflower mash, though it’d have been as good with any number of vegetables or low carb rices.
I’ll definitely be making this again!
