  • What's Your Favorite Meatloaf Recipe?

    I make a really awesome meatloaf that my husband loves. But I don't make it anymore, because it's got lots of oatmeal in it.

    I know that there MUST be Primal/Paleo meatloaf recipes out there. Is there anything else I can use to hold it together besides oatmeal, or the more traditional bread crumbs?

    I have never used any time of 'bread' or grains in my meatloafOur favorite is the stuffed and smothered.
    2lbs of fresh ground meat (bison and beef is great)
    1 C of finely diced onions, garlic and celery
    spices (cumin, dry onions, garlic powder, quality salt and pepper)

    mix well and with 2/3 of ground make a loaf with a long trough or well.
    Stuff with chopped broccoli and cheese, or mushrooms and onions,garlic and melted butter, or cauliflower and bacon etc. and then apply the rest of meat as the top and pinch closed. Smother with a panful of sauce: pureed tomatoes, butter, spices, honey and fruit if desired

    I use a lot of cumin and garlic powder and I think these powders thicken the meat and help it hold together.

      I've never used bread or oatmeal in my meatloaf. Beat an egg and add to the meat along with onion, garlic and spices. Even without the egg the meatloaf will hang together.

        Just type in MEATLOAF into the Google Custom Search bar on the right side of the green sub-bar up top, & take yer pick of loads of recipes.

        Ok, personally I use 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef mixed w/ : 1 egg, 1 cup coco flakes (not powder, as it doesn't bind well), finely chopped veggies like onion, garlic, celery, tomato,(sea salt optional), whatever spices you like/have, top it all off w/ think layer of tomato sauce w/ more spices. Cover & slow cook til you smell it, then take it out of oven & let cool/settle a bit on stove-top while you prepare the other parts of the meal. Actually this is the only beef dish I cook til well done, but its comfort food so what the hell

              I found this on a blog somewhere.... maybe here.

              The cheddar cheese, not only is delicious, it acts as a binder for the loaf so you don't need bread crumbs.

              2 pounds ground beef
              4 ounces onion, chopped, 1 medium
              1 tablespoon coconut oil
              1/3 cup Ketchup or tomato sauce
              2 cloves garlic, minced
              2 eggs
              1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
              1 teaspoon salt
              1 teaspoon pepper
              1 tablespoon No-Salt Seasoning or chili powder
              6 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, 1 1/2 cups
