Meatloaf is a staple under the “quick and easy dinner” category. It’s a great way to feed a crowd or meal-prep for the week!

Traditional meatloaf uses breadcrumbs to hold the loaf together, which adds a lot of unnecessary carbs. So to make this Keto meatloaf, we’ll simply swap out the bread crumbs for low-carb ingredients.

The next time you’re looking for a classic comfort food that you can feel good about eating, definitely give this tasty low carb meatloaf a try.

How to make Keto meatloaf

This recipe is incredibly simple to make. All you have to do is mix the ingredients and bake!

Ingredients in separate ramekins on a wooden cutting board, as seen from above

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a loaf pan well.

Step 2: In a pan over medium heat, sauté the onion until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant, then remove from heat.

Step 3: In a large mixing bowl, add the sautéed onion and garlic along with the ground beef, liquid smoke, flax seed meal, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.

You can leave out the liquid smoke if you don’t have any, but it does add a great smoky flavor.

Step 4: Mix the ingredients well, but be careful not to over-mix so the meatloaf will still have some texture. If the mixture seems too wet, you can add up to 2 tablespoons of almond flour as needed.
