I'm a total sucker for a good meatloaf recipe, but sometimes I just don't have the time to spend staring at an oven, willing it to hurry up already.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar free ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon bottled Italian salad dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. Add the beef, pork rinds, egg, cheddar, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a large mixing bowl and stir together until well combined.
  3. Use your hands to form 9 small meatloaves and place in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Whisk together the ketchup and Italian dressing in a small bowl. Spoon evenly over the meatloaves.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.

Recipe Notes

I know that whole milk is not traditionally used in low carb foods, but in this case it's such a small amount that it doesn't add much to the carb count. You can swap it for 2 tablespoons of heavy cream mixed with 2 tablespoons of water, if you prefer.

Heinz makes a delicious sugar free ketchup!
