KETO Chicken Meatloaf

 This has to be the BEST Keto meatloaf! It is bursting with flavour and is perfect for anyone wanting to try a Keto diet!

Well we are still smack dab in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a high school cafeteria manager, I've been out of work since March. With everything closed for months and now finally starting to slowly reopen, we stayed home quite a bit. That means that we put on a few pounds. As summer started I decided it had sat around enough, and decided to exercise at home and start watching what I ate. It's so easy to stuff myself with chips and junk food while binge watching Netflix. So I stopped buying junk and filled the house with healthy alternatives.

Last Summer the health food store I had been working at, rolled out a ton of KETO products and we were asked to make Keto meal options for our hot table. For those of you who aren't familiar with a KETO diet, it is when you eat very low carb, adequate protein and high fat meals. The result is that the body burns fat, rather than carbohydrates. I never really jumped onto the KETO train, but since I have friends following the Keto diet, I've been browsing recipes and doing research. We do not always eat Keto, as I do have to watch my fat intake. But when I came across a few recipes for Keto meatloaf, I thought it would be something my family would enjoy. The cheeses add great moisture to the lean ground chicken and the meatloaf is bursting with flavour.

KETO Chicken Meatloaf

2 lbs ground chicken

1 C 1% cottage cheese

2 C mozzarella, cut into small cubes

½ C Parmesan cheese, grated

⅓ C basil pesto

2 eggs

3 Tbs almond flour

1 tsp basil

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp sea salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 packet of bacon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place bacon horizontally on a baking sheet, so that two slices touch each other in the center. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven.

While bacon is cooking, in a large bowl mix the ground chicken, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, pesto and eggs; until well combined. Season with basil, oregano, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper. Add in the almond flour and mozzarella cheese and mix well to ensure seasoning is evenly distributed. 

Place down the center on the baking sheet, on top of partially cooked bacon, leaving 2 inches of bacon sticking our from each side of the meat. Fold bacon oven the meat and place back into the oven for 45 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center reads at least 165 degrees F.

Remove from even and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
