Whole30 Compliant Meatloaf

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours


3 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic Ghee
1 medium onion, grated
1 cup mushrooms, coarsely chopped
2 ½ teaspoons sea salt, divided
2 pounds Thrive Market 100% Grass-Fed Ground Beef
2 eggs
⅓ cup Thrive Market Almond Flour
½ cup Whole30-compliant ketchup, divided
¼ cup parsley, chopped, plus more for garnish
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Pepper
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Crushed Red Pepper Flakes


Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and 1 teaspoon salt, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes more, or until onions are soft and mushrooms have browned; let cool.

Add ground beef, eggs, almond flour, ¼ cup ketchup, parsley, black pepper, red pepper flakes, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and cooled vegetables. Gently mix with your hands until incorporated; don’t overmix. Place the mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes. Remove and baste with remaining ¼ cup ketchup. Return to oven for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until center reaches 160°F. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing, and sprinkle with additional parsley before serving.
