  • 3 Ounces Tomato Paste
  • 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Erythritol powdered
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Medium Onion chopped
  • 4 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt divided
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Black Pepper divided
  • 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Lb Ground beef
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/4 Cup Mozzarella


  • Preheat to oven to 350 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix the tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, erythritol, onion and garlic powder in a bowl and set aside. Alternatively you can use low carb ketchup.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and cook onion with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon pepper over medium heat until softened (about 10 minutes).
  • Add garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Place cooked veggies into a large bowl and stir in Worcestershire.
  • Add the ground beef, eggs, mozzarella and remaining salt and pepper and combine thoroughly.
  • Form meatloaf on prepared baking sheet by forming a 5” wide loaf with your hands.
  • Brush the ketchup over the top and bake in the oven for 1 hr, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 155F. This took my closer to 1hr 15 minutes, but start checking your meat at 1 hr to be sage.
  • Allow the meatloaf to cool 15 minutes before cleaning up edges and transferring it to a serving plate*. Brush additional ketchup over the top (if you’d like) before serving and enjoy!


  • *The melted cheese will make the baking sheet look messy! I always serve this on a clean dish.
  • Sub the top 5 ingredients for low carb ketchup instead.
To save some carbs:
  • Use less ketchup. You can also sub ½ the onion for celery.
  • Nutritional information is based off 1 slice if you divide your meatloaf into 8 slices.
