Turkey Meatloaf with BBQ Sauce

 I can't say enough about this one! Billie and I both loved it, and I'm planning to make it again soon. I served it with a side of steamed broccoli and cauliflower mash.

Recipe copied from: Paleo Newbie (Her pictures are way prettier!) :)

  • 2 lbs of ground beef –OR– 2 lbs of ground turkey
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (I omitted this to save on calories)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped small
  • 1 (10 oz) package of frozen spinach, thawed and water drained
  • 1/2 of a red bell pepper, chopped small
  • 1/2 cup of my Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce (I use Organicville brand-- so delicious! Also cut the amount to 1/4 cup only)
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • tsp of salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 1 tsp of oregano
  • 1 tsp of thyme
  • 1/2 tsp of cayenne
  • 2 tbs of olive oil (to sauté vegetables)
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F
  2. Sauté onions and peppers over medium heat in a saucepan with 2 tbs of olive oil just until tender
  3. Add spinach, garlic, and spices to the sautéed vegetables in the pan, stir gently
  4. Remove saucepan with vegetables from heat, set aside
  5. Put uncooked ground beef (or) ground turkey in a large bowl
  6. Pour the whisked eggs and almond flour and mix into the ground meat with your hands - no need to overdo it
  7. Now take veggies from the saucepan and pour into bowl
  8. Once again, mix the vegetables into the meat with your hands
  9. Now form mixture into a loaf shape and center in a loaf pan or meatloaf pan – it should be a little smaller than the size of the pan
  10. Finally, pour over the BBQ sauce or ketchup to cover top and sides of the meatloaf
  11. Cook about 1 hr to 1 hr 15 minutes. (One hour was plenty for mine!) Oven cooking times may vary. If you have a meat thermometer, the internal temperature of the meatloaf should reach 155º F. Avoid overcooking!
  12. Remove from oven and allow to set for about 10 minutes before slicing
  13. Add extra BBQ or your own sauce as desired
  14. Serve hot and enjoy!
