It’s time to step your meatloaf game up to the next level! That level? Healthy and meal prep friendly! This High Protein Meatloaf Parmesan recipe is made with simple ingredients that your probably already have, has great macros, and is absolutely delicious!

Add into a large bowl 1 pound of lean ground meat, 1 cup of rolled oats, 2 large whole eggs, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 1/4 cup of shredded parmesan, and 1/4 cup of your choice pizza or pasta sauce (low sugar preferred).

For your ground meat here you can use ground beef, ground turkey, or even ground chicken if you want! As for the leanness of your ground meat? I prefer anything over 90/10 (less liquid) but 85/15 will work if that’s all you have.

Mix all of those ingredients together good.

You can easily change up the flavor here by using various pizza or pasta sauces. Garlic, basil, spicy, and so on.

Take out a pan or dish in the shape you want your meatloaf to be and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. The size pan you use is completely up to you. Use a meal prep friendly pan like this or double the recipe and use an even bigger pan!

Add in your high protein meatloaf mix to whatever pan or dish that you’re using and level it off.

Keep it in mind that you’ll have to adjust your cooking time according to the size pan or dish that you use. The more dense/thick your meatloaf is, the longer it’ll take to cook.

Over the top of your meatloaf evenly spread 1/4 cup more of pizza or pasta sauce and sprinkle on 1/4 cup more of some shredded parmesan. Add anything else you want like herbs, seasonings, or bacon bits to give it even more flavor!

Put your high protein meatloaf parmesan into the oven and bake it on 375F/190C for around 25-30 minutes.

Remove it from the oven, top it with some grated parmesan cheese, and start preparing your dessert!

How about a Low Carb Microwave Cheesecake!?
