I wanted to make another Induction Friendly recipe, and what better way to extend one’s food budget than a meat loaf recipe. Most traditional meat loaf recipes have binders of bread crumb to hold it together and soak up some of the beef fat. They also can be a little dry on the outside as the center gets to the right temp.
This recipe attempts to fix both of those concerns. The binder in this recipe is the cheese (cheddar and the Parmesan). The Parmesan really performs the same function as the bread crumbs did. The coating of bacon also helps keep the top from over cooking.
This recipe is derived from a recipe at Linda’s Low Carb recipe site (http://genaw.com/lowcarb/bacon_beef_rolls.html).
