I thought I’d let you drool a bit before you checked out the recipe!
My friend Summer posted this recipe to me on Facebook as a Paleo meatloaf that she makes. So I decided to adapt the recipe to my likes a bit. I was nervous. The last time I strayed from my tried and true meatloaf recipe, it was a disaster. One that my husband and our friend ate without complaints, but I almost gagged…but my goal is to get a whole bunch of Paleo recipes that we like so this new way of eating isn’t so difficult on us and maybe we’ll just stick to it!
Bacon Wrapped Paleo Meatloaf
- 2lbs Ground Beef
- 4-5 slices of Bacon
- 1 egg
- 1 stalk of Celery, chopped
- 1/2 an Onion, chopped
- 1 whole Red Pepper, chopped
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 TBS Tamari
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray your meatloaf pan with olive oil (I used my Misto…love it!).
- Place the egg, seasonings and tamari in a small bowl and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, place the ground beef and vegetables and mix with your hands. Once you have the two mixed, add the egg and seasoning mixture and mix the two together.
- Form into the shape of a loaf and place into your meatloaf pan.
- Place the bacon over top of the meatloaf, tucking the sides of the bacon down into the pan. You could wrap it all the way around it, but I was pressed for time.
- Bake for 1 hour or until your meat thermometer says it is done (mine took 65 mins).
Now like I said earlier, this is my most favorite meatloaf recipe. I used to make it with oats…never again! I did forget to add the tamari and it still turned out great! I also used my Perfect Meatloaf Pan. This is probably the best thing I have ever gotten for the kitchen. I received it as a gift for Christmas and when it says it bakes the perfect meatloaf, it truly does! Have you ever made this where it sticks to the bottom of the pan or it’s difficult to get out of the loaf pan? I have! This made removing the meatloaf so easy! Check it out:
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Be sure to check out the other recipes I have posted! They’re delicious!
