Low Carb Parmesan Meatloaf “S” for Satisfying (4-6 servings)
- 1 lb of ground turkey
- 1 egg
- 1 regular size low carb Joseph Pita (toasted and ground into bread crumbs)
- 1.5 tablespoons Italian Seasoning
- 1/4 cup Parmesan
- 1/2 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
- 1 tablespoon of Dried Minced Onion
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon Parsley
- Salt and Pepper
- 1/2 a Jar of Spaghetti Sauce
- Mozzarella Cheese
Combine all the ingredients and mix well, but do not mix to death, as it makes the meat tough. Put the mixture into a pan, or form a loaf on a baking pan. I prefer a baking pan so that there is more crispy crust. Pour about 1/4 the jar of sauce over the meatloaf.
Cook in a 400 degree oven about 30-45 minutes. Top with mozzarella cheese, and add a little more of the spaghetti sauce. Add parsley over top of the cheese.
Pair this satisfying “S” meal with your favorite salad with a creamy dressing, a side of steamed or buttered veggies like broccoli, zucchini, or cauliflower, and you have a completely yummy meal.

Alright if you hate Meatloaf this is the recipe for you. It has made me a meatloaf hater to a meatloaf lover. I have this at least once a week for dinner. I thought I would share since it is a relatively inexpensive meal to make for a family. Plus its done in the crock pot how much easier can it get.
Crock Pot Meatloaf Recipe:
1.5 pounds of ground meat (I’ve used both turkey and beef)
2 Beaten Eggs
1/2 – 3/4 cup of milk (depends on how wet you want it. I’ve been using only about 1/2 cup)
2/3 cup of breadcrumbs (I use panko)
2 tablespoons of Tastefully Simple Onion Onion (if you don’t have TS use regular dried onions)
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Sage
Mix all ingredients above together. Take some tinfoil and line your crock pot with it (You can spray with non stick cooking spray if you would like). Next drop your meatloaf mixture in crock pot and shape how you would like. Cook on Low for 5-6 hours. Beware some crock pots cook a little hot so check on it about the 4 hour mark.
1/4 cup of Ketchup
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
Mix all together and place on top of Meatloaf last 15 minutes of cooking.
