Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • Ingredients for Glaze
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 ½ tablespoons cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce
  • Ingredients for Meatloaf
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 17 saltine crackers
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • ⅓ cup fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Directions for glaze
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a small sauce pan. Cook over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Set aside ½ cup for glazing the meatloaf. Save the rest keeping it warm to serve with the meatloaf.
  3. Directions for meatloaf
  4. In a large skillet over medium high heat using the oil cook the onions until lightly browned. Add the garlic and continue cooking until fragrant. Place the onion mixture in the bottom of a large bowl.
  5. Using a blender or food processer pulse the crackers into crumbs. Add the milk and process until mixture is smooth. (I would think you could also use a rolling pin to crush the crackers, place them in a small bowl, and then mix the milk in until smooth) Add the mixture to the bowl with the onions.
  6. Place the rest of the ingredients in the bowl and mix using your hands until well combined.
  7. Line a 13 x 9 rimmed baking pan with aluminum foil, and lightly spray the foil with cooking spray. Form a meatloaf in the pan about 9 inches long and 5 inches wide.
  8. Set the oven to broil. (My oven has a high and low setting – I set it to high) Broil the meatloaf about 4 inches from the elements until meat loaf is browned. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and brush ¼ cup glaze over the top and around the meatloaf. Place the meatloaf in the oven and continue broiling until the glaze is browned. Remove the meat loaf from the oven and brush on another ¼ cup coating of glaze. Set the oven at 350F and bake until meatloaf is done. (About 40 minutes to an internal temperature of 160F.)
  9. Remove the meatloaf from the oven, tent with aluminum foil, and let rest 20 minutes before serving. Serve with remaining glaze.

Low Carb Italian Meat Loaf Recipe

I don’t make it a point to prepare low carb recipes very often, but a couple of items in the ingredients list; in this Low Carb Italian Meat Loaf Recipe caught my eye. The first item was Zucchini; which you don’t see in a meat loaf recipe very often. The second was whole wheat fresh bread crumbs which I thought was kind of unique because most meat loaf recipe I have prepared called for traditional or seasoned dry bread crumbs.

This is a simple recipe, but it does take some time, because of the baking time which is about an hour. I followed the recipe as is and the result was a moist good tasting meat loaf. If you’re into a low carb diet, or just want to try something a little different, give this Low Carb Italian Meat Loaf Recipe a try.
