I absolutely 100% completely adore meatloaf. In any form. I’ve made a lot of meatloafs…meatloaves…whatever, I’ve made a lot in my day. There are so many ways you can make meatloaf. Let’s take a look back in time:

Chicken Basil Meatloaf

Bacon Meatloaf

Southwest Meatloaf

Savory Sweet Potato Meatloaf

Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf

Cajun Meatloaf

Ok that’s really not that many. I guess I just have to make more.

It’s really inconvenient when the presidential debate is two miles from your house. And they shut down the main highway through Denver. So dumb. I mean, not really for me because I live like 1 mile from my work and spend most of my time in my kitchen, so I really have nothing to complain about. But I just want to. It was inconvenient for my friends, so I feel as though I have the right to complain. What the sh*t presidential debate, we got places to go. Meaning the rest of Denver, not me.

I’m going to Chicago over the weekend. Yes I am. I’ve never been to Chicago. But everyone loves it. I’m going to an Outlaw Training Camp. Gonna lift weights. Talk about lifting weights. Be around a lot of people who like lifting weights more than I do. It should be interesting since I’m not very strong. Nor am I incredibly good at CrossFit like the other athletes that will be there. Am I intimidated? Naaaaaaaaaaaa. Kidding, I totally am. I still can’t even do a muscle up because of my shoulder injury and I’m going to be around all people who can bust them out. Sheesh.

Dude. Thanksgiving is coming up, like real quick. I gotta start thinking up some fun recipes to make for your Thanksgiving feast. WAIT Halloween is first. I gotta start making EVERYTHING with chocolate. Can we call October the month of chocolate? You’re not down? You’re stupid. I miss chocolate. I got a little 80% chocolate bar over the weekend and it did not last long. Meaning less than 5 minutes. I was getting nervous about cutting out coffee…so I ate sugar. Good plan Juli, good plan.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. if october is the month of chocolate… PLEASE make november the month of pumpkin and squash! awesome blog- you are too funny!

  2. Brilliant! One thing though, you bake the loaf in the loaf pan? Is there any build up in grease?

    Ps. Don’t say you’re not good at CrossFit. You made it to regionals. Therefore, you’re awesome.

    1. @Zac- Yeah, she said the same thing on her website about being a bad dancer. I saw one of her YouTube videos- she is amazing! I wish I had moves like that!!

  3. This was the first year I even watched a debate and it was not really interesting basically the same thing that I hear in the news! Anywho I just want to say that I am addicted to you and your site! I actually cook one of your recipes every day well for the last 13 days! Was never really much of a cook till you came along hehehe I was more like one of those that looked at a recipe book enjoyed the pictures and idea but never followed through plus I really just pulled things and hoped they turned out good type of cook! Oh and I went to Chicago twice to the Harpo studios to see Rosie! It was pretty the streets are so clean and I fell in love was even crazy to get an impulse to move there and sell my house here…never came to be and glad now cause it would have been only to be able to see the Rosie show once a month! Hope you have fun! Well this long story short okay I know that is impossible now but I just wanted to give a shout out to you! Oh and stop running over dead squirrels they might start throwing nuts at your car or running out to make you swerve…okay so you have to see the Geico commerical to get that one…lol

  4. I might just have to make this instead of chili tonight! Have fun in Chicago! I live a couple hours from the city and love it when I get the chance to spend time there. Some serious eats in Chicago!

  5. I LOVE meatloaf except my husband doesnt…what is he thinking?!?! so i have to make it when he’s not around. I LOVE Chicago too. I”m from there originally and love to visit…only to visit tho. I would never live there again, traffic is ridic and the winters are insane. I think you’ll like it…i try and get there whenever i can to visit family. hopefully weather will be great for you! have fun!

  6. Welcome to Chicago (soon!)
    Be ready to stuff your face full of deep dish pizza, like for realz, if there is one thing that tugs me to vere from my paleo ways… its deep dish pizza. I’d sleep with that shit if I could.

  7. First time commenting, but have followed for a long time and made numerous recipes!

    So stoked to hear you’ll be at The Outlaw Training Camp. I’m going as well! And no worries, feeling the same….nervous as hell. As least we can laugh at ourselves, right? 🙂

  8. So exciting you’re coming to Chicago–welcome to my home town! Lou Malnati’s does make a meatza that is pretty awesome! Also, excited to make this meatloaf!

  9. Outlaw Training Camp will be awesome! So jealous. You and Rudy crack me up on a daily basis. Outlaw and your blog are the only two I check everyday.

  10. Juli- if you are going to be in Chicago this weekend, cone by the Chicago Marathon!!! I am running for the Chicago Police Department Memorial Fund!!!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE your site, I stalk you daily!! I think I have the same issue you have with acne and nuts. Can’t wait to keep reading, I’m pretty sure you are my sister, cause we talk totally the same except I use B@lls more often.
    After marathon is 100% crossfit, can’t wait

  11. I’m new to your blog and to paleo. As an ex-Olympic style weightlifter I’ve been enjoying your Crossfit tales.
    I have been vegan for a few years, but recently started eating some meat. While there are schools of thought that say we don’t need as much protein as we think, I found that I personally needed more. I didn’t want to eat too much soy, and other vegan protein sources are starch based. This was just a bad combo for me. So, here I am trying Paleo which is closer to how I ate when I was competing in lifting. I get weirded out be eating meat that looks like the animal it came from, so ground meat is my go to. I’m making this recipe with ground turkey and serving it for Thanksgiving. Your donuts will be the dessert. Keep up the great blog : )

  12. i literally just made italian meatloaf a few days ago with the grass fed beef-75% lean- from us wellness meats. i’m so happy you posted about that site. i just got a shit ton of meat from them- rabbit, bison, salmon, beef. the meatloaf was insanely good. the fat just gushed out while it baked ahhhh euphoria!!

  13. Have fun at Training Camp! My life goal is to be badass enough to someday be able to attend one of those without completely embarrassing myself. You’re going to kick ass… go on with your bad self!

  14. Are you ready for the cold front that just moved in today? I am not! But, I can take advantage of the cold outside and make some of your yummy recipes. Looking forward to the chocolate goodness for October. We’ve been on a cauliflower “rice” kick here at our house lately, I think I am missing my rice recipes that involve green chile, so I am trying to figure out some for us. Keep up the awesome posts, look forward to the recipe book.

  15. Hi Juli,

    Your blog is my favorite. It’s the only one I read everyday! I love your personality and your paleo friendly recipes – and you sound like a real person who has good days and bad days and I love how honest your blog is.

    Can’t wait to try out this recipe and just to let you know you have inspired me to create my own blog. EEK!

  16. You should have a Friday question and answer sesh tomorrow! Why? Because it’s Friday! duh! and I think those are fun. Ohh, the Certain Dri you use is it the AM one or the regular one??… I don’t know which one to buy and I seriously need to try something for my crazy sweatiness/stinkyness… thanks!

  17. Hi Juli,
    OMG I love Love LOVE your blog! and your recipes!
    You’re coming to Chicago this weekend?!? If you’ve got some spare time, you should totally check out our box — Crossfit E-town (E stands for Evanston, which is where we are located, just north of Chicago). Several of our members follow your blog like me, and we LOVE your humor, your stories, and most of all your kick-ass recipes that are helping us stay “clean” during the Lurong Living Paleo Challenge. 🙂
    Alrighty, have lots of fun at the Outlaw seminar and please pretty please take lots of pictures with Rudy and his awesome beard! 😀

  18. Hola,

    Huge fan of yours, do you have an amazon store where I can purchase the products you reccommend? Or at least a good food processor, mine needs to be updated! Look forward to hearing from you! 🙂

  19. I have to admit. I have a blog crush on you girl! you are amazing. I wish I were half as strong as you are!
    you rock!
    and yep. Oct chocolate month?. I vote twice!
    then maybe I’ll eat so much I’ll make myself sick and never want to eat it ever. again.
    who am I kidding?

    k. one question. what do you do for sore muscles? I am trying to push through it, but it sucks. yanno? um. and yeah. I have some stupid auto-immune muscle-bone issue.. so it’s a lil worse. but I try not to complain about it.

  20. OMGGG you’re going to be in Chicago?!?!?! One of my coaches is going to be in Denver this weekend & was gona hit up your box. I can’t believe she will be there, when you will be here. BOO!! If you have extra time, stop by Crossfit Defined (a few miles from the one you will be at). We all loveeeee you there!!!!

  21. So exciting that you are going the Outlaw camp! I work out at Rudy’s gym (Outlaw Crossfit) in DC… you will have a great time and learn SO much. They don’t call him the bearded wizard for nothing ;P Plus you get to hang out with Talayna and EA and a bunch of Rudy’s other awesome sauce athletes! I’m a little jealous, except I outlaw all the time, so I guess I can’t be too jealous. The meatloaf looks like the shiz too!

  22. Just found your blog today searching for paleo recipes- this was the type of crossfit /paleo blog I was looking for! Great recipes and great sense of humor. I can’t stop reading!

  23. That was silly of Outlaw to host a camp in Chicago over marathon weekend. Hopefully you are walking distance to the gym, since all the streets will be shut down on Sunday!

    If you have time to play at night, get out of the downtown area and check out Wicker Park/Bucktown – Big Star for amazing taco’s and people watching, Emporium Arcade is an arcade / bar = awesomeness. Have lots of fun!

  24. My chocolate consumption skyrocketed when I gave up coffee a few months ago. Of course, I’m back on the cup…and still eat tons of chocolate…but they’re basically my only vices so I let it slide. Good luck with the coffee detox!!

  25. How fun that you’re coming to Chicago this weekend! So is Jenna from the Paleo Project (clearly I stalk Paleo blogs, so what?). But for real, come to my box. CrossFit Defined. We’re way fun and awesome. Or if you get a break from lifting heavy stuff I’ll show you the best parts of Chicago……or just my cool neighborhood. Obviously I’m not a weirdo, I sumo deadlifted 135 this morning.

  26. i {heart} meatloaf too! going to try a few of yours. had a winner from michelle of nomnom–porktastic–but buffalo chicken might even tempt my picky teenaged son!

    thanks for all you share!

  27. You so rarely hear people save they adore meatloaf. I respect you for that Julie, I really do. As far as chocolate month I am willing to join up with you. Chair a committee or something…Let me know 😉

  28. I got really confused when you said Halloween was before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is this weekend! Then I remembered that American Thanksgiving is like a month after ours. Silly Canadians.

  29. Juli, meatloaf looks awesome. Have fun at the Outlaw Training Camp. I tried signing up for the Texas camps, but missed out. Have you been following Outlaw for a while?

  30. This is my second time making it since you posted this recipe. My husband and I absolutely LOVE it!!! The only things I did differently: added cilantro (simply because I add it to pretty much everything; I’m in love w/ it), and after the loaf baked for about 15 minutes, I spread the sauce on top and continued baking for the duration cuz that’s the way my mom used to do it. Love that, too. Thanks so very much for all of your recipes!!! You are awesome!

  31. So I just made this and absolutely loved it! I did have a problem with it falling apart but I didn’t mind at all!
    I did add some chopped up carrot to the recipe and I used a green bell I roasted instead of red.
    I sauteed some kale with garlic and served the meatloaf on top. Heavenly….great recipe!

  32. So Jealoussss!!!!! I do Outlaw programming as often as I am able, and I wont be able to afford to go to a camp. You should totally write a post about it with lots of pictures and video, cause that would be totally sweet.

  33. Thanks for posting this Julie! I might go on a meatloaf making binge this week! Definitely going to make this one tonight and hopefully the chicken basil meatloaf tomorrow! You rock Girl 🙂

  34. Made this tonight and it was SO easy to throw together after a long day, but SO yummy and satisfying. I can’t wait to try out more of your recipes! 🙂 Thanks!!

  35. You know how a husband, boyfriend, whatever says “it was good?” I just have to think to myself, he’s really telling another woman she cooked good. 🙂

  36. YUM!!!! This was perfect after a WOD. Your blog (as well as your recipes) keep me motivated to lift more and keep going!!!!!

  37. You did it again! I was never a big fan of meatloaf because every time I tried one it was kind of dry and bland, but this meatloaf completely changed my mind! It was absolutely delicious! I served it with garlic and herbs mashed cauliflower and it was a perfect comfort food meal! Yum!

  38. This is excellent. So easy my boyfriend figured out how to make it the first go around.

    I also made some AWESOME meatballs. Made the mixture normally and then rolled them into 2″ balls. Laid them in a pyrex baking dish in a single layer with a little bit of sauce on top. Baked for about 35 minutes at 400 degrees.

  39. I just made this and it is delicious! I couldn’t afford to go out and buy some almond flour, so I just used almond meal that I had leftover from making almond milk. It worked just fine!
    I’ll definitely be using this recipe again.

  40. I made this recipe yesterday and the family devoured it, but, like some of the other posters, mine also fell apart. Any suggestions on how to get it to hold better? More eggs? More flour?

      1. no, I think the flour is what makes it so crumbly (I had the same problem). just guessing, but I think *less* almond flour will help it hold together better (think how well ground beef sticks together in a straight-up burger, with no flour at all).

  41. Just made this tonight with garlic smashed cauliflower and spinach salad. Nummies, even my overly picky, won’t eat anything healthy mother-in-law enjoyed it. Thanks!

  42. Great! And my little chefs helped me thru the full recipe – AND ate 2 full servings, woot woot – that’s big things in this household (maybe because they saw all the good stuff that a tally went in there;-) We liked it just the way it is written; lots of herbs like Italians would themselves;-)
    Thanks for an absolutely awesome and super fun website! I haven’t tried one of your recipes that came out wrong, that ROCKS!

  43. I didn’t have the roasted red pepper or the dried parsley, so I substituted green bell pepper and left out the parsley. I also like cooking my meats at lower temperatures, so I baked it at 325 F for 1 hour till the thermometer read 160 F. I couldn’t stop saying to myself “OMG this is so good!” the entire time I was eating it. Great recipe.

  44. Just put this in the oven and it already smells fantastic. I used buckwheat flour instead of almond because I’m cheap. Hoping this doesn’t add any flavor to the loaf.

  45. I should have trusted my instincts…3/4 c almond flour was way too much, in my opinion. My non-paleo recipe for Italian meatloaf only calls for 1/4 c of breadcrumbs! My kids totally loved this, but I could really feel the almond meal in an unpleasant way. Next time I’ll reduce it to only 1/4-1/3 c.

    I also added chopped spinach, which was great, and used a can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce–1/4 c drained for the meat mixture, and then pureed and cooked down the rest for the sauce. That’s what I had on hand, and it worked great–plus no label-reading about what ingredients are in the pre-made sauce.

  46. I made this by chopping up onions fine in food processor and not pre-cooking onion or roasted pepper. I also doubled recipe it and cooked it for about hour and a half. it turned out as one of the BEST meatloaves I’ve ever made. THANK YOU so much for this recipe!

    1. I forgot to mention I added for the doubled recipe 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. It just adds the slightest kick for extra flavor depth without overpowering the delicious Italian seasonings. 🙂

  47. Hi there,

    when you say “tomato sauce” do you mean homemade or from a bottle?? I am in NZ so sometimes the American terminology is a little different 😀

    Looks yummy and I can’t wait to try it 😀

  48. One word…RIDICULOUS!!! Seriously…that’s how good this is. Just made a double batch with ground turkey and couldn’t believe I made something that tasted so delicious. Thank You!

  49. One word…RIDICULOUS! This is so incredibly delicious! I was amazed that this came out of my oven and I made it with my own hands. I used turkey instead of beef and doubled the portions and baked in a glass 9×13″ dish – just formed a loaf in middle of dish. Either way…it was so moist and flavorful. Thank You!

    1. Whoops! Didn’t see the first comment post. So…posted again. Wanted to make sure everyone knew how awesome this dish is. Thanks again!

  50. your meat loaf looks delicious but a little flat to me ( I’m just transitioning to paleo and still think meatloaf needs a filler ) I think Im going to try your recipe with a “rice” filler ( cauliflower rice of coarse) almost like porcupine balls only in meat loaf

  51. This is my kids’ favorite meatloaf, my daughter even asked for this for her birthday dinner! The funniest thing is that I mix 1 lb of ground liver and 3 lbs of ground beef to make two giant pans. I don’t tell them it has liver, but they keep saying this tastes like parmesan cheese!

    Thanks for another family favorite, I’m making your sage burgers with apple and bacon chutney as I type 🙂

  52. So good!! This is my go-to recipe for meatloaf! I make mine into balls and bake it in a muffin pan for meatloaf bites! DELICIOUS!!

  53. This was actually the best meatloaf I have ever had! I have been doing the Whole30 challenge and I can say this made eating healthy worth it! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  54. Christina Anderson

    Have made this twice in the last two weeks! It’s sooooo good! Have just finished my first month of being on Paleo and new recipes are a must! This one is definitely a keeper!! Thank You!

  55. I’ve made this meatloaf about 5 times now and it is seriously the bomb! Tonight my one year old picky eater started scarfing some right off my husband’s plate out of the blue! You know it’s good if he’ll eat it! 🙂

  56. I have made this meatloaf countless times and it is always so delicious! It always impresses my family and friends, both paleo and non-paleo! Highly recommend.

  57. Very good meatloaf. I think the higher cooking temp gives that nice caramelized/crunchy effect to the top surface of the meatloaf. Didn’t even bother with the sauce. Just meatloaf and sauteed spinach. Yeah!

  58. So I have made this twice now and I can honestly say this is the best meatloaf I have ever had. And that’s comparing it to non-paleo meatloaves. The flavours are just so wonderful and it always turns out sooooo delicious! Thanks for the recipe! Your recipes make going Paleo so much easier and I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything!

  59. My husband suggested we make meatloaf last night and I rolled my eyes…ugh, meatloaf. Then I looked on your blog for ideas and came upon this recipe. It was AMAZING! We didn’t have almond flour so we used cashew instead. Oh, and we used ground deer meat. It was incredibly moist! My husband loved it, too!!

  60. We always made meatloaf in a pan. My dad decided (many years ago that since we had 6 kids and Mom & Dad) to make mini meat loafs. Take a palm size about of meat mixture, roll to make an oblong size, place on the grill pan (you know the kind with the holes on the top and it fits over the grill pan) put a little water on the bottom pan of the pan. Cover with aluminum. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Check one by cutting the middle to see if done. Put a 1/2 slice of cheese (any kind you like) bacon strip & or ketchup on top, put back in oven uncovered for about 10 minutes. Seems to stretch and nice for leftover sandwiches for lunch. We use 3lbs of meat. Yields about 15 mini meat loafs. More or less depending how thick and long you make them.

  61. I effing laughed out loud at this comment: “Can we call October the month of chocolate? You’re not down? You’re stupid. ” LOL 🙂

    1. oh lordy, that is a hefty meatloaf. that may need up to 2 hours if it’s all in one pan. if it’s in multiple pans, you could do less time!

      1. So, should I just go and do your recipe x 8 and add it all to one pan at 400 degrees for 2 hours? I was afraid it might get the meat dry on the outside while not cooked theough in the middle…. Thanks!

          1. Let’s say I do 1 pan per recipe, could I try and have 4 of them in the oven at once but for longer?

  62. Made the Italian Meatloaf and loved it. We have a family of 6, half of whom don’t like meatloaf. Everyone ate this, had seconds and leftovers, and gave it a thumbs up on making it again! Good job! Thank you.

  63. never commented on a recipe before, but this was great so i thought i’d stop by and say so! thanks for the recipe. just made it for the second time, and i changed it up a little to have a little more “traditional” meatloaf sauce… here’s what i did, your mileage may vary, and *gasp* there’s a little sugar in it…

    – instead of using a loaf pan, make it free-form! i use a rimmed cookie sheet with a cooling rack on top. line the cooling rack with foil and poke some holes to allow any drippings through. i don’t mind the drippings, but what this method does is expose a lot more surface area, so you get a lot more crunchy crispy exterior than in a loaf pan. booya.

    – for the sauce, i used the same amount of tomato sauce, omitted the herbs, and added about 1 T of vinegar, 1 tsp of hot sauce, and 1 tsp of dark brown sugar (as unrefined as you can find). cook this until dark and thick and bubbly

    – finally, take the meatloaf out a little bit before it’s done and turn on the broiler. baste the top with about 1/2 of the sauce and put under the broiler until it’s bubbly. repeat with a second layer. delicious caramelized sauce on top!

    either way, it’s an awesome recipe… thanks again! a+

  64. Wow!!! This was so delish! It had kind of a crust like top. It was mmm mmm good. Not one bad recipe in the bunch! I’m loving this site! Juli. You da bomb!

  65. ZOMG this was sooo good. I have made a grain-free meatloaf before and it was just too dry, but this was definitely NOT a problem with this recipe! We were out of thyme (literally and figuratively I guess, since I didn’t have a chance to run to the store to get more) so I subbed oregano and it was still fabulous. I also went halfsies with ground pork since that’s what I had in the freezer. My husband asked that I make more sauce next time, not because the meatloaf needed it, but because it was so good that he wanted to drink it haha.

  66. My husband and I LOVED this recipe. Fresh and delish with nice spices, and not as heavy as other meatloaf recipes. I made a few changes:: We used just a 1/2 cup of almond flour, sauteed a fresh red bell pepper because I didn’t have time to roast one, and added a little worcester sauce and some cayenne pepper for a little kick. I think next time I’ll also broil the sauce on top of the meatloaf for 5-10 minutes. All in all, my new favorite meatloaf recipe. Thank you!!!

  67. Just made this and it’s so good! Just doubled the meat, otherwise kept everything the same and I had no issues with it falling apart.

  68. This was wonderful! I never make meatloaf for my family because they think it looks gross. Well, I was hoping the kids wouldn’t like it because it tastes SO good- but of course, everyone LOVES it!
    I made everything as directed but only used 1/2 C almond flour. I let it cool down before eating & it held together just perfectly!

  69. I made this for dinner last night and it was so wonderful! I baked it free form on a cookie sheet (45 minutes instead of 50) and used a little less almond flour than recommended based on some other comments (1/2 cup approx). I am so excited to try out the other variations! What side dishes do you normally serve with meatloaf?

  70. The flavor was delicious but the almond flour made the texture gritty and unpleasant. I wouldn’t remake this dish.

  71. I have never ever tried meatloaf before. I just made this and I can hear Ariel singing “a whole new world” from Little Mermaid. Gah! Thanks for creating something my taste buds can’t get enough of!

  72. Wow, this was posted in 2012! Is this still your favorite meatloaf? Going to attempt this tonight without the egg (allergic)… but I do have bobs redmill egg replacer… I can try to use that. Looking forward to it, I miss meatloaf
