EASY LOW CARB MEATLOAF


This is my one and only recipe for meatloaf.


Turn oven on 375 degrees.

Get out a bread (loaf) pan. Don’t have to grease it.

Gather up the ingredients and throw it in a bowl, starting with the meat.

2 pounds of ground beef
2 eggs
1 tablespoon Mrs Dash garlic and herb spice (you can add more spice, depending on your taste)
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
¾ cup of bbq sauce
Diced peppers, green, red or both, mushrooms (if desired) and onions

After you've added the diced peppers and other ingredients, get your hands in there and mash everything together. When that’s done press it down in the loaf pan and place it in the oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes. When the time’s up take it out of the oven and place the meatloaf (take it out of the bread pan!) on a flat surface, cutting board or plate, and let cool before cutting into pieces.  I like to cut mine up in 8 equal chunks, 1 chunk is 1 serving, which is only 5 grams of carbs and 13 grams protein, great for a diet!

Make yourself a salad and drop a little bbq sauce or ketchup on the meatloaf and enjoy.

Now if you want regular meatloaf, just add 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of breadcrumbs to the mixture, or instead of breadcrumbs you can just smash some ritz or plain crackers, or what I do is buy the ceasar flavored croutons and smash that up, more flavor that way.  Then serve with mixed frozen veggies and mashed potatoes and gravy.
