Low Carb BBQ Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe

sliced keto meatloaf on a plate for dinner Most kids don’t care for meatloaf; however, my kids love this BBQ Cheeseburger Meatloaf. I think because it combines two of their favorites, BBQ sauce and cheeseburgers.

This is an easy keto dinner recipe that I can make up for them and know they will finish their whole plates. They love the sweet, tangy BBQ sauce flavor coated over the gooey, cheesy meatloaf.

This is a guarenteed family pleaser and it’s very easy to prepare. I list some meal prep ideas down below to make weeknight dinner even easier.

Keto BBQ Sauce

I prefer to make my own keto BBQ sauce. It is less expensive and I know all the ingredients are whole ingredients and keto approved. Plus it takes less than 5 minutes to make. It’s something you can easily make up right before you make the meatloaf.

If you don’t want to make your own, there are a couple of store bought low carb BBQ sauces available for purchase. The two brands of BBQ sauce that I recommend are by Lillie’s Q and Primal Kitchen’s.

Keto Breadcrumbs

Since we aren’t using bread crumbs in this recipe, we are provide moisture by adding sauted onion and garlic. Ground pork rinds are added in place of the bread crumbs to provide texture and help bind our meatloaf together.

Meatloaf Pans

Keto Meal Prep Tips

Making keto meatloaf is even easier than you think. You can prep you sauted onion and garlic the night before or on your meal prep day. The morning you want to have the cheeseburger meatloaf, combine all the ingredients and mold or place in a loaf pan. Wrap with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to bake.

Keto meatloaf is freezer friendly. Prepare you meatloaf ahead of time on your meal prep day. Freeze unbaked in a loaf pan. Thaw meatloaf in the refrigerator the morning of or to heat meatloaf from frozen, bake at 350 degrees for 90-120 minutes.
