It’s been kind of a gray, cool and misty sort of day here in Atlanta and I have to say, I love it! Anyway, it really put me in the mood for some good comfort food. My first thought…Elana’s cookies! Then I rethought and figured I better focus on dinner.
So for dinner I decide on meatloaf and the cauliflower mash (under my ”Good ole southern meal” post). The meatloaf leftovers make for a great snack too! Anyway, I got this recipe (with some minor adjustments) from Sarah Fragoso’s Everyday Paleo blog. I love her book and blog. She’s an inspiration raising her kids totally Paleo and getting them so involved in the process!
- 1 diced red onion
- 2 lbs of grass fed ground beef
- 1 cup almond meal (it’s great without too for those with allergies)
- 2 eggs
- 1 can tomato paste
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 1 tbsp crushed garlic
- 1/2 tbsp Celtic sea salt
- 2 tbsp dried basil
- 1 tsp marjoram
- cracked black pepper to taste
- 5-6 bacon strips
Mix all ingredients by hand in a large mixing bowl. Place meat mixture into a large glass baking pan and flatten it out. Add some of the tomato sauce to form a thin layer on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink in the middle. Sometimes I’ll add some bacon strips on top if I have it on hand. If you do, for the last 5 minutes, turn the stove on broil to crisp the bacon up some.
Oh and I didn’t take a picture of the meatloaf because, well, meatloaf is just plain ugly anyway you look at it. But it sure tastes DELICIOUS!
