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)

Meatloaf for breakfast? Yes, it really is a thing! This paleo and whole30 breakfast meatloaf with bacon is so savory and delicious you'll want to devour it the second you crawl out of bed. Ground beef, sausage, bacon, vegetables and fresh herbs make this a savory breakfast delight! 


  • 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.
