Surprise Paleo Meatloaf

 

 

Hello and Good morning all. I was a busy bee this weekend cooking up different items some that turned out and others that clearly need more work. So for today I have brought you this AMAZING meatloaf recipe. Growing up I hated meatloaf, I always refused to eat it, it was boring and lifeless. Well my  mind has been changed after coming up with this recipe! The kids will be begging you for seconds.

Ingredients:

2 pounds ground meat, I used organic ground beef but any type can be used

4 eggs ( 3 of them hard boiled) <~ this is the surprise!

2 small onions or 1 large one; diced

1 small or medium yam/sweet potato; peeled and diced

2-3 cloves of garlic; minced

4 tbls of grainy mustard

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp chipoltle

1 tsp paprika

1tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp garlic

1 tsp Trader Joes African smoked spice blend

roughly 3-4 tbls of coconut oil

3/4 cup almond meal/flour

bacon, I used about 7 pieces so it will depend on you on how much it takes to wrap this beast

Ah the gorgeous  bacon!

Start out by sauteing your onion until soft, add the diced sweet potato and cover for about 5 minutes or until soft. After the sweet potato has softened add the garlic and stir until fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. If you don’t already have your 3 hard boiled eggs go ahead and hard boil them while you’re putting the rest together.

I put everything except hard boiled eggs in a stand mixer and used the paddle attachment and mixed until combined.

At this point you can start to assemble. Start by lining a loaf pan with your bacon.

Now comes the fun part. Add half of the meat mixture into the loaf pan and spread out. Now add the hard boiled eggs.

Add the rest of the meat and fold over the bacon. After-all this is the bottom anyway so it doesn’t have to be pretty.

Meanwhile Preheat over to 350 and bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and if your bacon is not crispy enough for you, CAREFULLY remove from load pan and flip over onto cooking sheet and place under broiler on high until bacon crisp up.

I served this with my Garlic Mashed Cauliflower and green beans on the side.

Have leftovers? Just heat some ghee or butter in a pan and cook both sides until they crisp up.
