I was overwhelmed with a mysterious urge to make meat loaf. No rhyme or reason, but meatloaf had to be made!! And not just any meatloaf but BACON wrapped meat loaf. So I created this low carb meat loaf recipe!
My first thought was – what to substitute for the bread crumbs to keep it low carb? Easy – riced cauliflower!
My second thought was – let’s bacon wrap this baby!
My third thought was – bacon makes everything better, but cheese makes everything best! So I decided a firm cheese that wouldn’t dissolve during cooking, like feta, would be perfect.
The result? My bacon wrapped meatloaf-baby. The extra kicker? You only use about a cup of cauliflower so there is plenty left to turn into cauliflower mashed “potatoes” to serve with the meat loaf.
Meat loaf and mashed cauliflower = a match made in heaven.
Voila! A giant, leftover-worthy low carb meat loaf recipe ready to feed an army. 🙂
