Meatloaf has to be near the top of the list when it comes to comfort food. Some might assume it was an American creation, but meatloaf can be found in literally every culture and continent on the planet. From hackbraten in Germany to khoochmal in Mongolia, it’s a dish that can be prepared in more ways and styles than you could ever imagine. Using ground turkey and paleo friendly ingredients, you can enjoy a low calorie version of a timeless classic.

Bacon and Ground Turkey Meatloaf

(Paleo Foodie Kitchen)

What doesn’t taste better with bacon? Nothing of course and meatloaf is no exception. The shredded carrots, celery and sweet onions in this recipe are a perfect complement to the hickory smoked bacon. Served with mashed cauliflower and onion gravy, you’re going to want seconds.

Turkey Meatloaf with Flax Meal and Walnuts

(Sue's Nutrition Buzz)

Admittedly this seems like an odd combination for meatloaf, but its unique texture in tandem with the fresh cilantro, red pepper and mustard might become one of your favorites. Substituting tomato paste for ketchup keeps this paleo friendly without altering the traditional flavor too much.

Turkey and Spinach Meat Loaf

(Dr. Hyman)

If you love spinach, this one’s for you. This meatloaf has an almost Mediterranean flavor thanks to the pecans, olive oil and basil. Don’t be afraid to add a little more or less spinach and possibly adding some grated carrots for a little a slightly sweeter flavor

Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatloaf

(Frisky Lemon)

We might have a bacon problem. Keeping the ingredients simple, the bacon does all the work in this recipe. Feel free to use ground white turkey instead of ground dark meat for a less fatty alternative. You may also want to use a little less bacon if you’re watching calories

Italian Paleo Meatloaf

(PaleOMG)

This one makes our mouths water. Tasting a lot more like spaghetti than meatloaf, you might even think about serving it with some spaghetti squash instead of the standard mashed cauliflower for a nice change. The homemade sauce recipe is also a great sugar free paleo friendly replacement for store bought sauce.

Slow Cooker Paleo Meatloaf

(Fit Slow Cooker Queen)

Potatoes WHAT? This is not exactly a paleo perfect recipe, but it was so good we couldn’t pass it up. Crockpot meals are pretty much a staple for folks working long hours and this one is fantastic. Using diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning and chopped spinach, it’s a lot like the Italian meatloaf above with a slightly lighter sauce. We also liked the author’s suggestion of getting some Kale in there if that’s your thing. Obviously remove the potatoes to make it paleo friendly.

Paleo Turkey or Beef Meatloaf Recipe

(Paleo Newbie)

Don’t let the simple title fool you. This recipe is packed with flavor. With a tangy paleo BBQ sauce, cayenne and chili powder instead of just a simple tomato sauce, this has more of southwest twang to it. I’d probably take it a step further and add some jalapenos or green chilies for a little more heat.
