Whole30 Breakfast Meatloaf
I know what you are thinking… really Kelsey, breakfast meatloaf?! But PEOPLE! You know I would never steer you wrong! When I do a Whole30 and want to make sure I eat enough at each meal so I don’t need to snack, I find that protein at breakfast is key! This is also a bonus because you can make a loaf on Sunday and have it in the fridge for the week. You can do a slice with an egg or some leftover veggies for the perfect meal to get your day going. In this recipe I went off my love for Chicken Apple Sausage with ground chicken, chopped apples, applesauce and spices! I also used the applesauce so we could avoid adding eggs and coconut flour to avoid nuts and make this whole dish nut, grain, egg and dairy free! Does it get any better? Whole30 Breakfast Meatloaf!!!
Yeah, I didn’t think so! This Whole30 Breakfast Meatloaf is also great for summer prep. These hot and BUSY days demand quick breakfasts and it becomes so easy to fall into a toast or granola bar routine which then can turn into MASS HUNGER by 11 AM and running to the nearest food source. Not like i’m speaking from experience or anything! 🙂 I kid I kid, who hasn’t fallen into that trap? Especially when you are out and about having fun during Summer. If those cases do arrive though, be prepared!! I suggest keeping some RX bars or some meat sticks around in your purse or car in case you get hungry while out and about. Time slips by quickly in the summer and you really don’t want to be stranded at the beach or a little league game with the snack bar as your only option. So let’s prep for success and make some gosh darn meatloaf for breakfast!
Yep it’s that easy!
I had to add a potato crust because… why not?! Whole30 Breakfast Meatloaf!
I also use Tessemae’s ketchup or my own homemade ketchup!

Looks great! How many servings would you say this makes? Can’t wait to try it!
At 2 pounds of meat I think 8 servings is about right!
This was a great recipe! I would make it again!
This sucker is dang good. I used ground turkey and forgot the coconut flour – but it didn’t matter. It legit tasted like a chicken sausage. I got about 7 servings, but I was being generous since its not something the hubs would eat. Don’t skip the potatoes on top, its like icing on a cake!
YAY!! So glad you liked it Megan!!
Can you tell me how many calories one serving size would be?
Not sure, you would have to calculate that in my fitness pal or something!
How crucial is adding the apple sauce and apples? Thanks 🙂
It adds a lot of flavors, moisture and texture! Not sure how it would be without them!
Do you reheat this on the stove top or microwave? Or is it ok cold? This is probably a silly question.
I do microwave!
Is this something that would freeze well- like half of the loaf after I bake it? I couldn’t eat that much by myself before it goes bad….so I’d love to save some for later!
I’m sure it would freeze well!
I found myself very often eating leftover meatloaf (your recipes) from dinner the night before at breakfast the next morning & I finally thought “duh, time to try the breakfast meatloaf!”. I’m thrilled to say it did not disappoint! This was very flavorful & juicy, perfect for weekly breakfast prep, another home-run!
