It has all the key ingredients to a great meatloaf – beef, pork, ketchup, onion, Worcestershire, egg, cheese and parsley. However, instead of using breadcrumbs to make this meatloaf moist and give structure, we use ground pork rinds. This helps keep the meatloaf low carb and gluten free.A final brushing of a mildly spicy red tomato based sauce before cooking the meatloaf gives this easy keto dinner, its characteristic sweet, tangy topping. But I think the best part about this recipe is that you can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.a slice of meatloaf with a side of mashed cauliflower and green beans

    Benefits of Cooking Meatloaf in a Sheet Pan

    The benefit of cooking keto meatloaf in a sheet pan is that it cooks in half the time. Most meatloaves take around 45-60 minutes to cook all the way through. If you press the meatloaf out in a thin layer, it won’t take as long to cook through. This allows you to have a delicious, homecooked keto meatloaf for dinner in under 30 minutes!pressing the meatloaf onto a sheet pan

    Replacing Breadcrumbs in Keto Meatloaf

    Breadcrumbs are put in meatloaf to provide support and moisture. Since breadcrumbs aren’t keto approved as they are high in carbs and contain gluten, I like to use a keto-friendly substitute. Using ground pork rinds or pork panko offers the needed moisture and flavor to help form this scrumptious loaf.I get my pork rinds pre-ground but you can always grind them yourself with a bag of pork rinds and a blender or food processor.pork panko on top of meatloaf ingredients in a bowl

    Keto Meal Prep

    This keto meatloaf recipe is a recipe you can prep ahead of time. On meal prep day, you can mix up all the ingredients and store in a Ziploc bag or a bowl until ready to cook. You can also freeze the meatloaf uncooked too. Just remember to take it out of the freezer the night before so you can unthaw it.

    What To Do With Leftover Keto Meatloaf

    Should you have any leftover meatloaf, you can always reheat it in the microwave, oven or air fryer to heat back up to eat. If you aren’t a fan of leftover, you can repurpose the meatloaf and make a meatloaf chaffle sandwich using my recipe for wonderbread chaffles.Another idea is to cut up the meatloaf, mix with a low carb marinara sauce and top over hearts of palm noodles or zoodles.

    1. I just started my Keto journey and this has become a go-to recipe for a quick and easy meal. It’s absolutely delicious!

    2. This was delicious! I loved the technique of spreading out the meatloaf to make it cook faster. Thank you for sharing.

    3. We love everything about this recipe! In fact my hubby said he liked it better than regular meat loaf (and my pre keto meat loaf was enjoyed by many). It comes together so easily, and the sheet pan cooking gives it a great cook on all sides. The topping/sauce is so flavorful, too! I cut the recipe in half, but making it as written would definitely be ideal for meal prep or freezer. It hits all the comfort food wants!

    4. This is a wonderful, hearty comfort food for the whole family that does not taste “diet” at all! Everyone loved this so I’m putting it in the regular rotation for sure!! Love your YouTube channel & blog! Looking forward to trying more! Thanks very much!

    5. Loved this! But had a question? Why the whipping cream? I can’t really have milk so I did not add any. But was wondering what does it do for the meat loaf?

    6. This recipe looks awesome and I love how easy it is. I have a question about the meat and fat- I usually drain my beef fat when preparing dishes like tacos or a keto lasagna. Is the meatloaf greasy at all due to it not having anywhere to drain while cooking? Thanks!

      1. Lauren I have a Tupperware vegetable steamer I make my meatloaf in – in the microwave. I didn’t do this when trying this recipe for the first time, but I will revert to it next time because the fat drains out the colander holes. (I’m not keto, just low carb and love Annie’s channel and site) So if you can find a microwave safe steamer, it’s 25 minutes on roast (70% power), I believe, if you use two pounds of meat. I usually do a little over a pound at 16 minutes.

    7. I made this with turkey tonight and added chopped celery and chopped onion instead of the grated onion. Two of us liked the extra crunch; one did not. Thanks for the great meal recipe!

    8. This was seriously the best meatloaf I have ever had! I can’t do full Keto because of a heart condition, but I am doing very low carb. Used 93/7 lean ground beef and this was still crazy juicy. Thanks for the fabulous recipe
