Ingredients

For the meatloaf:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced small
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and diced small
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt divided
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fresh copped parsley for topping optional

Ketchup glaze:

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F . Line a medium rimmed baking pan with foil. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once it’s rippling, add the peppers and onion and saute for 2-3 minutes until soft and onion is translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • In a large bowl, add the rest of the meatloaf ingredients then add the cooked peppers and onions. Use a wooden spoon or your (clean) hands to mix everything together until well combined.
  • Form the mixture into about an 8x4 inch free-form loaf on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  • While it’s baking, make the ketchup glaze. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. When the meatloaf is done, remove from the oven and evenly spread the glaze on top using a spoon or glazing brush. Turn the oven to broil and place back in the oven for 5-7 minutes until bubbling. Start watching it when it reaches 3-4 minutes to ensure it doesn’t burn. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving. Top with chopped parsley if desired.

Notes

If you don't have ground turkey you can swap it out for ground chicken or ground beef. There is more fat ground beef so you may need to add a bit more coconut flour to absorb the moisture.
