Southern Style Paleo Meatloaf


Southern Style Paleo Meatloaf

Confession time! I have never liked meatloaf. I am not sure why, or what it was about it, but growing up it just didn’t tickle my fancy.  But y’all, I have to tell ya I am now a believer in this lil pan of goodness!!  After playing around with many traditional southern recipes, and giving them a primal kick in the pants, I came up with one delicious loaf pan of southern goodness (if I don’t say so myself)!

This dish is simple, savory, and safe for the wallet!  Try this one pan meat pie on a busy work day, or a laid back day, either way you’re going to love it and want to add it to your family recipe go-tos!

    Could I make invidual sized portions using small baking dishes? I have those small ramekins that could fit like 5 or 6 oz portions

      So sorry for the delay Alison I have been out of town :o) Yes! You can definitely do that!! I love to make them in muffin pans for my little girls. It makes it fun, and you can freeze them individually for smaller grab-n-go meals or snacks! Change up the baking time though. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Check one of the muffins in the center if it needs more time increase by about 5 minutes. Let me know how it turns out!! It’s a family fave :o)
