Ah. The tried-and-true meatloaf. Wholesome, nutrient dense and completely satisfying.
This recipe is loaded with goodness and is completely grain free (traditional meatloaf requires white/wheat flour and/or bread crumbs).
Grain-free Beef & Bison Meatloaf
1 lbs ground grass-fed beef
1 lbs all natural ground bison
2 tbls ground flax-seed
Dash of ground pepper
Dash of sea salt
Dash of paprika
Dash of thyme
1/4 tsp cumin
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 scallions, chopped
2 small-sized carrots, shredded
1 egg, organic cage-free
Is there one? Basically just put this all in large mixing bowl and have at it. I literally put everything in the order listed above. I don't believe there is a rhyme or reason. I like to mix it all with my hands- but beware because it is COLD.
Bake either on parchment paper in a casserole dish or in a loaf pan. The benefit of the parchment paper style is that it will allow some of the fat to drain out. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes. (I'm a little paranoid about meat being done... hence the cut marks in mine... lol ;))
Meatloaf glaze (optional):
2 tbls organic yellow mustard
1/2 tbls favorite hot sauce (I used a pumpkin cayenne one)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tbls honey
1/2 tbls arrowroot powder
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly in a small bowl :)
