Cook Time1 hr 15 mins
Total Time1 hr 30 mins


  • 1 pound 85% Ground Meat or fattier
  • 0.5 pounds Sweet Italian Sausage not in casing
  • 1 Onion
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • 0.25 cups Feta Cheese Cut Into Cubes
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Finely Riced Cauliflower ~1/4 head cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons Thyme
  • 1 tablespoon Hot Sauce i used valentino's hot sauce
  • Salt And Pepper


  • Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil until transparent, let cool.
  • While sauteing, line a baking sheet with tinfoil. Then line a cooling rack with tinfoil and poke holes in it with a knife. Place cooling rack on top of baking sheet (which will catch the drippings).
  • Mix meats, onion, garlic, eggs, cauliflower, thyme and hot sauce with your hands. Squish and smooch, people!
  • Add in the feta cheese and generously salt and pepper, squish and smoosh some more.
  • Shape mixture into a loaf and transfer onto the tinfoil lined cooling rack. You may need to reshape it back into a loafy shape.
  • Line bacon horizontally across the loaf and tuck the edges under the loaf, as the bacon will curl up while cooking.
  • Take second half of bacon and weave it through the first batch (you may need to re tuck some edges).
  • Bake for at least an hour (mine took 1:15) or until meat thermometer reads 160. Let cool for about 10 - 20 minutes before serving.
  • Use this time while baking to make your caulimash and other sides. I used thyme in this batch to complement the meat loaf.
  • Cut along the horizontal bacon per piece.
