Low carb and bariatric friendly meatloaf that can be made quickly on a lazy Sunday (or any other day)

For the love of meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of my all time favorite dishes. Just how much do I love meatloaf? It was the main entree at our wedding buffet. I LOVE a good meatloaf!

It’s also a fantastic bariatric friendly meal.

A few tweaks to the classic versions to omit the starch such as oats or breadcrumbs, and this is easily a low-carb and high protein dish. You can also make mini meatloaves which make a great bariatric size meal and they re-heat wonderfully for easy lunches or dinners later in the week.

The versatility

One of the best features of meatloaf? The possibilities are endless. The more I’ve made meatloaf in new ways, the more ideas that come with what to do next. It also becomes really easy to throw one together on a Sunday afternoon, which is when this recipe was created!

Not unlike a soup, you can truly add a little of this or  a little of that. I’ve made meatloaf recipes anything from Italian flavor focused to Cajun to Santa Fe and more! Click this link for a list of my meatloaf recipes.
