Who doesn't love a comfort food of meatloaf and bacon and on a cold winter's night. I sure do and especially when its Paleo and in a slowcooker and you can set it and forget. This Paleo slowcooker meatloaf is perfect for anyone on the go who wants to come home to a good home-cooked meal.
What you need:
2 pounds of lean ground meat (ground chicken works really well for this, as would lean turkey).
2 eggs, beaten.
4 ounces of bacon, crisped and chopped.
1/2 of a small white onion, small dice.
4 green onions, chopped.
2 stacks of celery, sliced thinly or chopped.
2 tsp of dried oregano
1 tsp of black pepper
1 tsp of thyme
2 tsp of smoked paprika
2 tsp of garlic powder
For the Tomato Sauce:
1 small can of tomato paste (can also use 1/4 cup of tomato sauce).
2 to 3 tbsp of dijon mustard.
2 tsp of smoked paprika.
2 tsp of garlic powder.
1 tsp of apple cider vinegar.
How you assemble your loaf of meat:
Cook your bacon until brown and crispy, then chop it up good.
In a large bowl combine your ground meat, beaten eggs, bacon, veggies and seasonings.
Mix everything together by hand, forming a loaf.
Place your loaf in your slow cooker and press it down so that the top is flat and you have about of inch of space between the loaf and the sides of the slow cooker.
Mix your tomato sauce ingredients together and spoon them over the loaf. Use a spoon or a knife to frost the loaf’s top as evenly as possible.
Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
