  • CookTime: 1 Hrs 15 Mins
  • TotalTime: 1 Hrs 30 Mins

Ingredient

  1. 1 pound ground beef
  2. 1 pound chorizo (or Italian sausage)
  3. 1 cup pork rinds (ground into crumbs)
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1/4 cup milk
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  8. 2 tablespoons parsley (chopped)
  9. 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  10. 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  11. 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  12. 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  13. 1/2 pound thin-sliced bacon
  14. 1/3 cup tomato sauce

Instruction

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine the ground beef, sausage, and pork rinds in a large bowl. Mix until the ingredients are evenly distributed, but make sure not to over mix or else the meat will be tough.
  3. Whisk together the egg, milk, salt, pepper, parsley, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan cheese. 
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the meat mixture. Add in the onion and garlic. Combine until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed. 
  5. Form the meat mixture into a loaf shape. 
  6. Wrap the meatloaf with the strips of bacon.
  7. Carefully pick up the meatloaf and place it on a cooling rack over an aluminum foil-wrapped baking sheet. Pour the tomato sauce over the top of the meatloaf. 
  8. Bake in the preheated oven uncovered for one hour or until the top is caramelized and the internal temperature is 165 F. You can increase the temperature to 375 F for the last 5 minutes to further caramelize the top and crisp up the bacon. 
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Slice and serve immediately with your favorite keto sides, like mashed cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. 

Note

  1. If you want the onions to be softer inside the loaf, you can saute them in a tablespoon of olive oil in a small pan for about 3 minutes before adding them to the meat.
