Low-Carb Swiss Meatloaf Recipe

I ended up serving a simple salad -- lettuce, sprouts and tomatoes -- with a double serving of this tasty Swiss loaf. Total carb count for this dinner -- 6g.

I picked up 4 lbs. of ground beef with every intention of grilling a bunch of burgers for the week. Instead we grilled a few burgers and I ended up using a little more than half of the beef for a low-carb meatloaf.

The recipe came from Dana Carpender’s 500 Low-Carb Recipes. I love this cookbook. The other night I started flipping through it and ended up flagging the recipes I want to try. I flagged about 60 recipes, but that’s only because I ran out of Post-Its!  Lord I’m drooling just thinking about it. I’d say this book was a smart buy on my part.

Pretty easy to make, this moist meatloaf is only 2g of net carbs. The name of the recipe comes from the 5 ounces of grated Swiss cheese mixed into the beef. However, I may try a smoked gouda or cheddar next time.

For my Weight Watchers peeps, you can cut the points in half by using extra lean ground beef and fat-free Swiss cheese. While I’m on Weight Watchers, I spend my points on foods higher in fat and protein since I’m cutting back significantly on my carbs.

As a side dish, I decided to go with a simple salad — 2 cups of lettuce, 1/4 cup of alfalfa sprouts and 1/2 of a small Roma tomato. That bumped my dinner to a total of 7g of carbs (I had 2 servings of the meatloaf).

All the ingredients in a bowl ready for mixing. My husband did the honors as I had a cut on my finger.
