Grain-free Turkey & Beef Fall Spiced Meatloaf (paleo, GF)
I might be a little toooo excited about Fall. And not just because I love wearing boots and light jackets. It’s mostly because I love Fall foods and the Fall food mindset. Comfort-food becomes the norm, pumpkin everything is celebrated, baking with apples is expected, and cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves come out of the cupboard. Happy days!
I figured I should start putting those Fall spices to use and added some nutmeg and cinnamon to this Grain-free Turkey & Beef Fall Spiced Meatloaf. So perfect for Fall.
Is it just me or does hearing the word “meatloaf” make you think of the movie Wedding Crashers? “Maa! The meatloaf!”
Haha back to this meatloaf. I had never put nutmeg or cinnamon in meatloaf before, but after tasting it, I can’t imagine not doing so. Especially during Fall.
It adds a pinch of Fall flavor that is so complimentary to the meat and tomato flavors in this comfort food dish. I love it!
This whole dish was SUPER easy to make.
I put all of the meatloaf ingredients into a bowl, mixed it all together with my hands, and put the meat into a 9.25 x 5.25 x 2.75 inch tin pan.
Then I topped the meat in a sweet tomato, cinnamon, and nutmeg mixture.
Note: I put a thin layer of sauce on top. If you want more, I would double the honey and strained tomato sauce.
Another note regarding the onions. I put raw shallots into the meatloaf.
However, if raw onions hurt your stomach, I suggest cooking them prior to putting them into the meatloaf.
The mixture of fresh tomato flavor with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg spices and the ground beef and turkey with oregano, basil, nutmeg, and cinnamon spices results in a delicious twist on normal meatloaf.
Using lean meats keep this dish lower in fat, and using almond flour and coconut milk keep this dish grain-free and Paleo.
It’s a really great filling meal that makes tasty leftovers. I actually think it tasted better the next day. 🙂
