This French Onion Meatloaf is to die for! A little secret....David does not like meatloaf at all but he had 2 helpings of this and said it was the best meatloaf he ever had! I think I may have a winner here! He even asked for leftovers! It does take a little longer because you have to caramelize the onions but you have to trust me here, it is so worth it! I cant wait for you to try it!


1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1/2 cut Italian Nut Crumbs
(or almond flour)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp coconut aminos
1/2 cup ketchup, I like Noble Made
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup caramelized onions
5 large sweet onions, peeled & sliced

1 tsp salt
1 tsp thyme
