Best Low Carb Keto Turkey Meatloaf

Delicious and flavorful, keto turkey meatloaf is moist and perfect for a low carb family dinner. Traditional meatloaf in gluten-free form, popular with everyone, on a keto diet or not.

Did you grow up with a family meatloaf? I know some families that ate it once a month or even once a week without fail. Some years ago I started making a turkey meatloaf and absolutely loved it! It was popular with friends and family, and when I started on a keto diet I was determined to make it gluten-free and glorious.

Truly, meatloaf is one of those classic comfort foods. It’s perfect for a winter evening or with a lemony green salad in summer. Moreover, you can bring the family together and enjoy a classic everyone will love, all while sticking to a keto diet.

Best low carb substitutions for bread crumbs

If you’ve ever made a meatloaf, you’ll know that most recipes contain bread crumbs. To make a gluten-free and low carb meatloaf I knew I was going to have to find a good replacement for the breadcrumbs. Also, that replacement still had to keep the loaf super moist.

There are quite a few options, such as almond flour and cauliflower rice to name a couple. However, the solution I ended up with as my favorite may not be what you expect.

Pork rinds.

Yes, pork rind crumbs.

Many keto dieters eat pork rinds as a snack so it may or may not surprise you to hear they work well in baking.

It’s sort of like when Elizabeth Bennett says, “Shelves in the closet, a happy thought indeed.”

Excuse my Pride and Prejudice reference, but some may be more excited by pork rinds in a meatloaf than others! I admit I find it a very happy thought, indeed, because it works!

How to make pork rind crumbs

First of all, find a good quality pork rind. Some are even flavored and can make the meatloaf even tastier, just be sure they don’t add in something you’re trying to avoid on keto.

Check the ingredients before you buy. That’s sort of a rule I always live by.

There’s a couple of ways you can do this. The simplest, easiest way I’ve found is to put the pork rinds in a gallon zipper bag. Then, take a rolling pin and whack it or roll over the pork rinds. Now, make sure to shake the bag then continue to repeat the process until the rinds are broken down into coarse crumbs.

Lastly, measure out the amount needed, and save the extra in an airtight container.

Alternatively, if you wish to get out a food processor, pork rinds can easily be pulverized to crumbs or even powder. Just pulse it a few times until the desired crumb size is achieved.

How to make a keto turkey meatloaf

To make a low carb turkey meatloaf, begin by getting out a baking sheet then preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Second, melt the butter in a skillet or sauté pan on medium heat and cook the chopped onions, salt, pepper, and thyme. It should take about 10 minutes until the onions are translucent.

Next, add in the garlic, vinegar, BBQ sauce, chicken bone broth, and tomato paste to the onion mixture. Combine it all well then set aside to let it cool.

Now take out a large bowl and mix the turkey, pork rind crumbs, and eggs together. You can use a spatula or generally I just use my hands as it feels like I get everything more evenly combined. A word of warning! Ground turkey just out of the fridge can be super cold so you may want to let it warm up to almost room temp so you don’t freeze your hands. Or not. 😉

Then add in the cooled onion mixture so it’s evenly dispersed throughout the meat. Once it’s all completely combined, shape it into a rectangle loaf on an ungreased baking sheet.

Lastly, before it’s put in the oven, spread the ketchup on top evenly. It will bake for about 50 minutes to one hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

Serve hot right out of the oven or at room temperature.

You may find some of the fat from the meat leaks out onto the baking dish. There is nothing to worry about when this happens, and it’s expected. Simply cut the meatloaf into slices and transfer it to a serving platter or bakeware dish.

Low Carb Chicken Mushroom Soup

Low Carb Chicken Mushroom Soup

Healthy low carb chicken mushroom soup is the perfect comforting soup for the winter cold and flu season or anytime! High in protein and a tasty gluten-free, low carb twist on an old favorite.

This winter so far has been a tough one. It seems like everyone lately has a cold or the flu or some weird sickness that makes you want to hide out in a dark room in bed. In fact, I heard actually 5 schools were closed today in our city due to a recent norovirus outbreak.

That tells me it’s time to stay away from stores and crowds this weekend. I’ll throw the kids in the shower when they get home from school and get all the germs off of them. Then it’s time to set my Thieves essential oil diffusing and make some comforting soup. Especially so since the weekend’s forecasted for snow and freezing temps!

The power of comfort soup

What soup to make, you ask? Well, my low carb chicken mushroom soup is reminiscent of a traditional chicken noodle soup. However, if you ask me it’s even better!

Chicken, mushrooms, celery, cauliflower, bone broth, and cheese, this is packed with protein and good things. You can even make it dairy-free by leaving out the cheese and instead whisking in 3 beaten eggs!

How to cook chicken thighs

Cooking chicken is pretty simple, right? Well, it can be! In order to get a perfectly cooked chicken thigh, there are a few points to keep in mind. This is how I like to cook chicken.

Traditional Method: How to cook chicken thighs in the oven

Baking chicken in the oven is my traditional go-to method. Usually, I don’t like to boil the chicken as I feel like I get a better flavor baking it.

First, spray/coat the baking pan with coconut, avocado, or olive oil. Second, spread the chicken thighs evenly around the pan and salt and pepper them well on both sides. You can even add garlic powder or paprika if you like. Then, either spray or spoon oil on the chicken and rub it on gently.

Bake the chicken in a 350-degree oven for about 25-35 minutes, depending on the size. Once the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees take them out of the oven and tent them with foil for 5-10 minutes to keep in the juices.

Eat them, use them on a salad or in a soup! Enjoy!

How to cook chicken thighs in the Instant Pot

The Instant Pot is my second favorite way to cook chicken, although I usually only do it this way when I’m in a big hurry. They do turn out flavorful and juicy!

To begin, season the chicken on a meat or cutting board on both sides. When I say season I mean salt, pepper, and optional garlic powder and paprika or whatever you prefer. 

Next, turn on the Instant Pot to high sauté, add a tablespoon of oil, and brown the chicken on all sides. Then take the chicken out and add a cup of water to the pot. Put an Instant Pot trivet in and place the chicken on top of it. 

Now, seal the lid and turn the pot to high-pressure cook for 10 minutes. Do a 10-minute natural pressure release and then push the button on top for a quick release of what’s remaining. The chicken should be ready!

Tips on how to make low carb chicken mushroom soup

How to make this lovely soup? Well, start by getting all your ingredients and utensils out and ready. First, melt butter or coconut oil in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Second, add the mushrooms, celery, onion, and garlic and stir it around occasionally. Cook it for 4-5 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked and the other vegetables are soft.

Once the veggies are ready, pour in the bone broth and water. You should have the cubed chicken from the directions above on how to cook perfect chicken thighs. However, as a super quick sub, you could chop up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

So, add in the cooked chicken, cauliflower rice, and the bay leaf. Simmer it all for about 10 minutes and then whisk in the cheeses until melted and well-combined. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then, simmer it all for 10 more minutes, or more if time to get those flavors all fused together and glorious.

Last, stir it all well and serve in bowls topped with chopped parsley. Yum!

How to make a dairy-free low carb chicken mushroom soup

I’ve had some requests for dairy-free recipes lately so I thought I’d mention you can very easily make this a fabulous dairy-free soup!

There are only a couple of substitutions to make a healthy dairy-free low carb chicken mushroom soup.

  1. Use coconut or avocado oil instead of butter.
  2. Leave out the cheese and instead whisk together 3 eggs. I like to mix them with the cauliflower rice before adding it to the soup so the egg doesn’t curdle and clump as it cooks. So, stir the beaten eggs with the cauliflower then add it all to the soup. Bring it to a simmer, continuously whisking until the egg is cooked through.

Voílà! There you have it. Super-easy, right?

 

To feel safe and warm on a cold wet night, all you really need is soup.

Hot summer days book suggestion

Read it while you enjoy your slow-cooker pulled BBQ chicken with a side of keto green beans and bacon! Does that not sound divine? Sign me up!

Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons

This book is hilarious. Published in 1932, Flora Poste is recently orphaned and goes to live with her relatives in deep Sussex, the hillbillies of England. She’s set to organize them all and fix everyone’s problems and prejudices. Each character has their own peculiarities and makes for a great light-hearted read. Also, this is a case where the movie is also fabulous. Usually, I say the book is far and away better than the movie, but this one has perfect casting and great nuance. Enjoy.

 

To make this slow cooker pulled BBQ chicken you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 and a half pounds of chicken breast (or boneless, skinless chicken thighs)
  • 1 and a half cups of tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sweetener of your choice (I use Swerve Confectioners)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt (more or less to taste)

How to make slow cooker pulled BBQ chicken

Do you have any idea why I absolutely LOVE this recipe? Well, to be honest, there are several reasons, but the main one is that it’s so super-simple, quick and easy! What mom out there wants things, especially dinner, to be more complicated during the summer? No one! Also, what mom out there really wants to be eating out every night because they’re so stressed and end up making unhealthy choices for the family?

I know none of us intend to fall into that dinner quick fix, but when you’re busy at any time of the year it is TOUGH to get a pleasing dinner on the table when you’ve been running around all day being chauffeur and cheerleader and don’t get home until 7 or 8.

This slow-cooker pulled BBQ chicken recipe is incredible because all you do is throw a few ingredients in the Crock Pot, stir it up, set the Crock Pot, and dinner is essentially done when you get back from that evening karate class. This is super kid-friendly, it’s my daughter’s absolute favorite meal and generally a crowd-pleaser. So let’s get started.

Slow-cooker pulled BBQ chicken, bowl

First, measure out the tomato sauce and pour it in your Crock Pot. Second, add all the other ingredients EXCEPT for the chicken breast. Stir that all up, then you add in the chicken breast and cover it with the sauce. Set your slow cooker timer for 3 and a half hours on high or on low for 7 hours. You’ll be able to tell when it’s done when you scratch it with a fork and it literally falls apart in shreds.

Here’s a picture when it’s ready before you shred it:

Slow-cooker pulled BBQ chicken cooking

Next, once it reaches this stage, take two forks, place them crisscrossed in the chicken, and pull them apart from each other. Continue to pull the chicken until it’s all completely shredded and mixed in well with the sauce. At this point, I like to turn the slow cooker to the “warm” setting and leave it for a few more minutes before serving.

Slow-cooker pulled BBQ chicken in crock-pot

Note!: I call this super-kid friendly, which means kids love it, but it’s not incredibly spicy. If you’d like more of a kick add in some more black or red pepper to taste or other desirable spice for BBQ.

Last but not least, serve the pulled BBQ chicken on your favorite keto bread and alongside a salad or veggie. At our house, we generally spoon a good helping on a plate for each person, and help ourselves to steamed broccoli and a piece of some sort of cheese, egg, and/or almond flour keto “bread”. We love it, and I know you will too!

What are your favorite kid-friendly super quick dinner recipes? I’d love to hear what works for you!

We take our pulled BBQ chicken to preschool events, picnics, church potlucks, and have it at home 1 to 2 times per month. Do you have a go-to family recipe in your meal rotation you’d like to share? Or maybe you’d like to see it made over to be low carb and keto? Leave me a message in the notes, and I’ll take a look!
