Ingredients
  

MEATLOAF:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup breadcrumbs or almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

TOPPING:

  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and top with a wire rack.

PREPARE THE MEATLOAF:

  • In a small saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add the onions and garlic to a large bowl and mix in the ground beef, bacon crumbles, eggs, breadcrumbs, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
  • Divide the meat mixture into 6 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a loaf and place on the wire rack, leaving some space in between each loaf.

ADD THE TOPPING AND BAKE:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the topping ingredients. Spoon onto the top each loaf, spreading evenly to cover.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the meatloaves reach an internal temperature of 160° F.

Notes

  • Freezing instructions: to freeze raw, prepare the shape the meatloaves. Wrap each loaf in plastic wrap and then foil. Place in a sealed container and freeze for up to 6 months. When ready to bake, prepare topping, allow meatloaves to thaw in the refrigerator. You may need to add a little more baking time if the meatloaves are very cold. To freeze after baking--- cool, then wrap and put in a container. Thaw and re-heat.
