What makes meatloaf different from just ground beef is what you mix into the meat. A little onion, garlic, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, and an egg add flavor and moisture to the meat. Then you pack it into a loaf pan and top it with a thin layer of ketchup which cooks and caramelizes on top of the meat to make an amazing sauce. Obviously you can’t use breadcrumbs in a low carb meatloaf recipe so instead I used ground pork rinds.

I know you’re making a face but you don’t taste them at all. The crushed pork rinds suck up the liquids and keep the meatloaf moist just like the breadcrumbs. The texture is exactly like a classic meatloaf. To get that delicious sauce on top you use reduced sugar ketchup. You get that perfect baked on sauce on top without all of the carbs. If you’re eating low carb, or even if you aren’t, you have to give this recipe a try. It is truly low carb comfort food.
