For the Meatloaf Stuffing

  • 1 lb ground beef (500g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 medium onion (Finely chopped)
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (We prefer gouda or medium cheddar)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos (Can use soy sauce as well)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp chili powder (Mexican mild chili powder)
  • 2 tsp salt (We use course salt, so use less if you’re using fine table salt)

  • 8 bacon strips
  • 1 cup ketchup

Instructions

  • Turn on the oven to 400F/200C
  • Mix all the ingredients for the meatloaf in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

  • Spread approximately 1 tbsp of ketchup on the inside of each pepper.
  • Add 2 strips of bacon to each pepper. (See process shot above)
  • Divide the meatloaf stuffing evenly between the peppers.
  • Fold the bacon over top of the ground beef.
  • Spread approximately 1 tbsp on ketchup over the top of the bacon and ground beef.
  • Put the peppers into a sheet pan or oven dish and slide into the oven for 45 minutes.
  • The meatloaf stuffed peppers are done when they reach an internal temperature of 160F/70C.
