  • Grain free Bacon and Sweet Potato meat loaf:

    1 lb ground beef
    1 lb elk meat (or 2lbs ground red meat of choice)
    1 sweet potato, shredded
    1 sweet yellow onion, finely chopped
    1lb uncured bacon
    1 cup almond meal
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup mixed raisins, or dried cranberries 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cloves 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    salt and pepper, to taste
    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
    Time to get your meatloaf ‘insides’ ingredients going. So take ½ of the 1lb of bacon and chop it up into bite size pieces. Add to a deep saute pan and begin to cook down. Once the fat has began to rise, add your chopped onions and raisins to the pan to cook with the bacon.
    While those ingredients cook together, shred your sweet potato either in your food processor with the shredding attachment or with a shredder.
    Once the bacon is cooked through, the onions are slightly translucent, and the raisins or berries until have begun to bloat (you’ll see what I mean) add them to a large bowl along with all other ingredients: meat, sweet potatoes, almond meal, eggs, and all seasonings.
    Now use your hands to get dirty. Mix all ingredients thoroughly together and press meat into 2-3 bread loaf pans. I get the disposable ones because then there is no clean up. I’m dirty enough as it is.
    Top off the meatloaf with the extra slices of bacon.
    Bake for 40-45 minutes.
