Low Carb Plain Ole Meatloaf

Plain MeatloafThere is nothing plain about this plain ole meatloaf.  The flavors and texture are just terrific. I call it plain ole as opposed to the Meatloaf Extraordinaire which is absolutely a stunning visual by comparison. This was another of my blue plate specials at the restaurant and it always sold out.  It was made in a 21×6½x4 inch hotel pan which held 6 quarts and I’m here to tell you that it was a lot of meatloaf. Served with mashed cauliflower and the thin gravy it makes?…Ooh la la.

This recipe (altered to low carb) is the same one I have been making for nearly 50 years.  I mean how many newly weds can cook worth a hoot?  So this is what I grew up on and it’s what I have always loved…there is no ketchup topping and garlic is definitely the standout flavor.  If you have a favorite ketchup topping then by all means use it.  I don’t do this but putting bacon on top would also be good.  I do use Carbalose Flour Bread crumbs and they too can be omitted.  If by chance you have any leftovers it makes a great sandwich on the bread recipe above.  I use my small glass loaf pan and it is the same one I use for the bread.  If you want to make a bigger meatloaf then adjust the ingredients accordingly and use a larger loaf pan.
