This stateside classic is a great and thrifty alternative to a roasting joint
Meatloaf is a beautifully comforting meal that won't break the bank and how you serve it is up to you. You can go with traditional gravy and veg sides... making the meatloaf the centrepiece of a Sunday roast style meal. Alternatively, you could go American-Italian... serving with marinara sauce and pasta. Its a makes a pretty good sandwich filling too (Keep it Lo-Dough for low-carb)!
Most meatloaf recipes call for breadcrumbs. The Lo-Dough trick is to add Southern Style Coating to the meatloaf. This isn't just for bulk - it lightens and softens the texture of the dish- and in the case of our coating, it add a huge hit of flavour and spice too! It will not only keep the carbs down - it'll massively up the fibre too.
