  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with the chopped onion.
  • Add in beaten egg and the low carb breadcrumbs. 
  • Add garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Add tomato paste.
  • Using your hands (with or without gloves) Mix all of the ingredients together until fully combined.
  • Form the meat mixture into two smaller oval shaped loaves. This will help them cook more quickly and evenly.
  • Make a divet down the center of each oval loaf of meat. Place 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese into the center of each meatloaf, and close the extra meat up over it, so that the cheese is stuffed into the center of the loaves.
  • Add each meatloaf to a loaf pan and spray with a non-stick spray. I like coconut oil spray.
  • Top each of the meatloaves with a 1/4 cup of marinara sauce.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and top each one with half of the remaining mozzarella cheese. Return them to the oven and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the meat is cooked through (the USDA has the minimum safe internal temperature for ground beef at 160 degrees Fahrenheit).
