Share to save for later!

This bacon wrapped meatloaf is the king of all meatloaves. With a crispy bacon weave wrapped outside and cheese stuffed inside, this recipe can be used for regular family dinners or special occasions, such as a party.

You can prepare this with beef or pork or a combination of both like how we did in this recipe. You can season the meat with homemade taco seasoning or simply follow the list of herbs and spices as in the instruction below.

We use quite a good amount of jalapeno in this recipe to make it spicy. You can tell that we love spicy food! However, you can adjust the amount of jalapeno as you like, or simply don’t use it at all if you don’t like spicy food.

Traditional meatloaf is not a keto-friendly dish because it usually contains breadcrumbs that are made with enriched flour and gluten. This makes it a non-gluten free dish that is highly inflammatory for many people. Our dish calls for almond flour instead of breadcrumbs, which is full of healthy fats and fiber. 

To make this dish healthier, be sure to use high-quality pork and beef.  The bacon should be antibiotic and hormone free and contain no added sugars or nitrates. The beef should be grass-finished and raised without antibiotics or hormones.

The bacon weave seems a little bit complicated to do but it is actually not that hard. It just requires a little patience. We’ll show you how to make this weave first.

How To Make Bacon Weave

Step 1: On aluminum foil, place 6 long slices of bacon in vertical direction. It’s easier to make this with cold bacon slices.

How to Make Low Carb Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf

Preheat the oven to 350F. In the meantime, make the bacon weave as shown above.

Next, we need to season the meat (ground pork and beef) with all the ingredients and herbs (almond flour, egg, jalapeno, cumin, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, coriander and tomato puree). Mix well using a spoon or your hand.

Season pork and beef

After that, distribute the meat mixture evenly on the top of the bacon weave.

Spread meat on bacon weave

For the fillings inside, add cream cheese, sour cream and jalapeno neatly on one side of the meat bed and start rolling it up. You can use mozzarella cheese in the place of cream cheese.

Add cream cheese filling

Place the meatloaf carefully on a baking sheet without breaking it and bake for about 40 minutes or more, depending on the thickness of your loaf and bacon slices. Make sure to check if it’s cooked.

Rolling meatloaf and bake

Once done, remove from oven and cut carefully into 8 slices or however thick you want your slice to be. You can serve with fresh chopped avocado, cheese, and coriander.

For the meatloaf

Cheese filling:

  • 1 cup cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Jalapeno chopped, up to your liking


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Start by making the bacon weave following the instructions above.
  • Mix the ground pork and beef in a bowl. Crack in the egg. Fold together with the almond flour, onion powder, garlic powder, and tomato pureé if available. Pepper the mixture while adding the chopped jalapeno. Combine thoroughly to flavor the meat well.
  • Place the bacon weave on foil paper to make it easier to roll the meatloaf later. Flatten the seasoned meat onto the weaved bacon, evenly spread it with your hands or a spatula
  • On one edge of the meat bed, arrange the chopped jalapeno, cream cheese, and sour cream. Roll the meat carefully to avoid spilling the fillings.
  • Place the rolled meatloaf onto a baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes or more if the loaf is thicker. Check often to make sure it’s cooked.
  • Carefully slice the lukewarm loaf into pieces. Garnish with coriander, chopped avocado, and fresh cheese. Serve and enjoy!
