Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Keto/Low Carb)

Would you like to hear what I discovered yesterday? Well, I realized I had accidentally turned off comments on the blog for the past two months. Yikes!

About two months ago I was getting hit with a spam comment barrage so I had turned off comments for the evening, fully planning on turning them back on the next day. Whoops! Apparently I totally forgot. My apologies.

Onto the meatloaf. You get a pretty substantial serving here at only two carbs, leaving you lots of room for vegetables on the side to make up the majority of the carb count in your meal.

Of course, it doesn't have the exact texture of a traditional meatloaf, but I found it to be a great substitute. It is not tough and the diced onion lends some added texture, flavor and moisture. I would recommend going for a fresh onion for this as opposed to onion powder for this reason.

I had this with a sugar free ketchup. Tasty and even the kids loved it, onions and all. Enjoy!

Cheeseburger Keto Meatloaf
Makes 8 servings
Per serving: 2 carbs, 25g protein

  • 2 pounds raw ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan (I use the kind in the green can)
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
  1. Mix all of the ingredients except the cheddar cheese. Be careful not to over mix as this can make the meatloaf tough. Mix in the cheese cubes. 
  2. Place mixture into a lightly sprayed large oven safe dish. Form into a meatloaf shape. 
  3. Bake at 350-f for 1 hour, until cooked through and browned on top.
  4. Optional: garnish with sugar free ketchup.

  1. Ha! I was wondering what was going on with the comments! This looks good too. I don't think to make meatloaf often. I need to make one soon!

    1. Thanks for coming back even though comments were off for so long Carlee :)

    2. Made it today so amazing with grass fed ground beef

  2. This looks so good!

  3. I'm going to make this tonight, sans ketchup! This looks amazing!

  4. what kind of ground beef?

  5. This is in the oven baking, now. I'm interested to see how it comes out considering I totally thought it only needed 1 lb of beef! HA! I'm sure made as directed, it would be lovely.

  6. Could you add some diced dill pickles?

  7. I made this with ground turkey still amazing. Yummy

    1. Thank you for the feedback :) Glad it turned out great with turkey.

    1. You probably could. I would recommend the cheese cubes because they are more substantial in size. I feel like the shredded cheese is so small it might get kinda lost / melt away. But if you try it please let us know how it turns out. I've very curious to know :)

  9. Is there a recipe for 4 people?

    1. She stated in the recipe above this would serve 8 people all you would need to do to serve 4 people is to cut the recipe in half.

  10. This was delicious! Only thing was that the cheddar cheese seeped out, not sure what to do about that. I layed a few pieces of bacon over the top, then put it under the broiler at the end. Yummy

  11. I'm on ketos diet so I made 4 servings in a crock pot on high 2 1/2 hours used preggo pizza sauce 1/4 only 6 grams of carbs. Use cup extra Sharp cheese and cup Italian cheese blend thank you for the recipe
