  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound fresh grass-fed beef (I used a pound instead of splitting it with Veal)
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 pound fresh ground veal
  • 4 slices bacon (I used bacon from The Organic Butcher – it’s the best in town)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add veal, beef, almond flour, pesto, herbs, salt, pepper, onion,and garlic.
  3. In a small separate bowl, whisk in the egg and add it to meat mixture.
  4. With your hands or a spoon, combine the mixture until well incorporated.
  5. Form mixture into 4 equal rounds and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Wrap bacon strips around each meatloaf round. Top each round with additional sundried tomato pesto.
  7. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the meatloaf is cooked to desired doneness. Makes 4 rounds
