Low Carb Meatloaf

My sister and I are looking for a good lo-carb meatloaf recipe. This one is the best so far. I particularly like the bacon part.


1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 lb ground pork or veal
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 eggs
2 slices low carb wheat bread, crumbled
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup Walden Farms Original BBQ Sauce
4 slices bacon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine ground meat in a large bowl. Add crumbled bread and chopped onion. Add 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce—mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine the two eggs and heavy cream—add salt and pepper to taste—and beat with a hand mixer until frothy. Add to meatloaf mix and combine well. If the mixture seems too dry, add a little more cream or BBQ sauce. Form into a loaf and place in an oven safe baking dish. Spread the remaining BBQ sauce over the top of the uncooked meatloaf. Drape the 4 slices of bacon over the top of the meatloaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven, drain fat and serve.

Serves 6
3 grams carbs per serving
