Like a Bat Out of Hell!

Sorry wrong meatloaf! 🙂

Last night for dinner I made my Meatloaf Pepperoni Mini Pizzas and they were a hit. I thought I’d better not keep these little gems to myself.

I started by slowly caramelising two brown onions in butter, olive oil and garlic. Then set that aside to cool.

Next I grated one large zucchini and lined a loaf tin with slices of prosciutto.

In a large bowl I combined half the onion mix, zucchini, 3/4 cup of almond meal, 500gm beef mince, 500gm pork mince, two eggs, mixed herbs, black pepper, smoked paprika, onion & garlic powder. You’ve got to use your hands for this btw 🙂 That’s what makes it fun!

Place mixed mince mix into the loaf tin and fold prosciutto over the top.

Bake in 180°C oven for 1.5hrs. Half way through cooking you may need to carefully drain off excess liquid to ensure a nice browned loaf. I added this liquid to sauce mix.

For the sauce I took the remaining onion, one can of unsweetened chopped tomatoes, a splash of balsamic vinegar and black pepper. Simmered gently and reduced. I then added the pan juices and blitzed with a stick blender.

Once the meatloaf has cooked I set it aside to cool. This could easily be done the day before.

Once everyone was ready for dinner I sliced the meatloaf into 3/4inch slices. Topped with a spoon of sauce, some mozzarella cheese, two slices of pepperoni and more cheese. I then baked these little beauties for 12mins in a 200°C oven until golden and YUM!

Top with a lil more sauce and serve! Simple, delicious and very satisfying!

Forgive Me Father for I Have Sinned!

Monday afternoon I met my partner at the shops for a quick afternoon tea and after doing so well all year I decided to splurge with a slice of Lime Swirl Cheesecake and an Irish Nut Creme Coffee.

It wasn’t an accident or a mistake. I enjoyed it and made a purposeful choice for that afternoon.

It was delicious however come the next day I felt lethargic all day and now two days on I am just getting over it. I was of course knocked quickly out of Ketosis and hope to be back in tomorrow or Friday at latest.

It’s amazing how big an impact a little snack can have!

I tried something new last night for dinner from left overs and it was incredibly delicious! Three slices of left over meatloaf, spread with my tomato & onion sauce from the weekend and sprinkled with pizza cheese. I baked year for 15mins in a very hot oven and they came out like the most scrumptious meatloaf pizzas! Highly recommended!!! I’ll be making more meatloaves just to make these a day or two later.
