  • * 1.5 lbs ground beef or ground pork (or half of each for extra flavor)
  • * 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • * 1/2 tsp fresh minced garlic
  • * 1/2 cup crushed pork rinds ground flaxseed, or almond flour
  • * 2 eggs
  • * 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • * 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • * 1 tbs mustard powder
  • * 1 tsp liquid aminos or soy sauce if you prefer
  • * 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • * 1/2 cup cooked bacon
  • * 2 jalapeno peppers diced
  • * 5 tbs AlternaSweets Keto Ketchup


  • Add the ground beef, chopped onion, garlic, pork rinds, eggs, Italian seasonings, pepper, mustard powder and liquid aminos in a large bowl and mix it until it’s fully combined. Most of the time I use my (cleahands instead of a spoon to mix it all together just like Grandma used to do too.
  • Spray non stick cooking spray into the bread pan and pour half the meat mixture into the pan.
  • Spread the softened cream cheese on top of the bottom meatloaf layer.
  • Add the jalapenos and bacon bits.
  • Top the meatloaf with the second half of the meat mixture.
  • Add extra AlternaSweets Ketchup to the top of the meatloaf, then cover it with foil before you bake it.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about an hour.
  • TIP:  You can add it to one large bread pan or two small bread pans.  If you use two small bread pans this meatloaf will cook faster!  I’ve done this when my family hungry and wants dinner faster.


You can do lots of different stuffed meatloaf variations too!
We’ve added cheese, spinach, olives, jalapenos, cream cheese, and even soft boil eggs in the middle of this meatloaf just to change things up every once in a while.
You can also wrap the outside of the meatloaf in bacon too.  The possibilities are endless!  This recipe is hard to mess up so feel free to get creative each time you make it so you can figure out what your family loves best.
Another thing to note, we used unflavored pork rinds but I find adding the flavored pork rinds really does add flavor you will like!  You can hand crush them or you can use a food processor to pulse them for a few seconds to turn them into crumbs too.
The salt and vinegar or the bbq flavored pork rinds taste amazing in this keto meatloaf recipe!
