Meatloaf for breakfast? Yes, it really is a thing! This breakfast meatloaf with bacon is so savory and delicious you’ll want to devour it the second you crawl out of bed (at least that’s how I roll).
A Little Prep Goes A Long Way
You guys should know by now that we are all about meal prep and planning. Basically, that’s the whole point of our Meal Plans. Taking a little extra time over the weekend to make up a batch of this breakfast meatloaf is truly worth it. When you already have a delicious meal waiting for you in the morning, doesn’t that just make life a little easier?
Bacon Makes Everything Better
We added bacon to this meatloaf to kick it up a notch in flavor. You could really eat this meatloaf any time of day, but with the bacon in it it really makes it feel like a breakfast meatloaf. We like to make a batch, slice it up and have it ready in the fridge to reheat in the morning. Our favorite way to eat it is over a bed of greens with an egg on top – simply delicious.
It’s Really Pretty Easy
This breakfast meatloaf cooks for an hour in the oven, but it really only takes about 20 minutes of active prep time. If you have a food processor, it will cut out half of the work and make chopping up the onion, garlic, mushrooms and fresh herbs a breeze. Just mix in the chopped veggies and herbs with the sausage, beef and bacon and soon you’ll be enjoying some delicious smells coming out of the oven as the breakfast meatloaf cooks.

Breakfast Meatloaf (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)
- 8 slices bacon, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1/2 onion
- 2 cups mushrooms
- 1 tbsp fresh sage, (about 5-6 leaves)
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, (about 1 large sprig)
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground sausage, (breakfast or Italian)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 eggs
- Dice bacon and heat a skillet over medium heat. Add bacon to cook, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon just when it is starting to get crispy around the edges, about 6-7 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
- While the bacon is cooking. Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 8x8 baking dish with butter or ghee.
- Place garlic, onion, mushrooms, sage and rosemary in a food processor. Process until everything is diced into small bits. Alternatively, you can chop everything up into small bits by hand.
- Place beef and sausage in a bowl. To the bowl add the eggs, chopped veggies, salt, pepper and cooked bacon. Use your hands to mix ingredients together well.
- Add the meatloaf mixture to the baking dish and spread it out evenly. Place in the oven to bake for 1 hour.
- Remove and allow to cool at least 5 minutes before serving. We like to serve this over greens and topped with an egg.
This was listed as an egg free recipe but I see it has egg in it?????
I’m sorry, where was this listed as egg-free? Eggs can be omitted in this recipe, I’ve done it without eggs and it turns out great still.
Has anyone tried this with all turkey meats?… ground turkey, turkey bacon and turkey sausage? I don’t eat red meat. Would love to know if it tastes as good.
We haven’t tried it but it should taste good with the Turkey alternatives 😊
I just made this with all turkey meats and it’s wonderful. Still very flavorful!
SOOOOOO good!!! I made this recipe to the T and served it with steamed asparagus. On my list of freezer meal prep for the deep freezer.
Yes, this one is a great recipe for meal prep. I like to slice it and freeze it in portions. Then I thaw it out and heat it up in a pan on the stove and it gets a little crispy on the sides.Enjoy!
This is so good! Using the fresh herbs, as stated in the recipe, took it to the next level. Also, for being a mushroom filled recipe, my kiddos didn’t even notice. They gobbled it down. Will definitely be making this again and again.
I love that review Jessica, thank you! So glad your kids liked it too 🙂
This is so good! Hubby thought I was crazy when I first told him we were having meatloaf for breakfast, but he quickly changed his tune once he tried it. This has so much flavor, it’s definitely a go to breakfast (or anytime) recipe!
That’s amazing! Glad it’s a hit, and totally agreed that you can enjoy it any time of day!
I’m back to let you know we had this again this morning. I had some leftover from several weeks ago when I first made it. I diced it up, fried some sweet potatoes and onion, added the meatloaf, a big healthy spoonful of pesto and some spinach, then topped with fried eggs. Amazing!!!
Sounds delicious! My kind of breakfast 🙂
I love your recipes but there are a lot of mushrooms in your recipes. Since I can’t have them, can you recommend a good substitute or just leave them out? Thanks!
For this recipe you could leave them out. If you are looking for a substitute, sometimes eggplant can work.
Love this recipe I added a 1.5 lb of pork instead of the breakfast sausage! I also greased my pan with the leftover bacon grease after cooking the strips of bacon. It’s so delicious!
This is one of my favorites too! So glad you liked it and thanks for coming back to leave a comment :).
