This meat loaf is a little more fancy than the usual.  Even if some of the Mozzarella leaks out, there will still be lots of cheese ribbons through the meat loaf.  This is a very tasty meat loaf that I’m sure you will enjoy and make again.  It is much easier to make than it sounds.

11/2 lbs lean ground beef (0.680 kg)

2 tbp coconut flour (30 mL)

1 large egg

11/2  tsp salt (7 mL)

1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)

1/4 tsp black pepper (1 mL)

21/4 cups Mozzarella cheese (560 mL)


14.5 oz can diced tomatoes (411 g)

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (15 mL)

Liquid sweetener to equal 1 tbsp sugar (15 mL)

1 tbsp butter (15 mL)

10 oz can sliced mushrooms (284 mL)

Seasoning salt, to taste


In large bowl, place ground beef and coconut flour.  In small bowl, beat egg with fork and stir in salt, garlic and pepper.  Add to ground beef mixture and mix until well combined. 

Lay wax paper out on cookie sheet.  Press out ground beef into large rectangle, almost the size of cookie sheet; about 1-inch (2.5 cm) from the sides.  Sprinkle cheese over top, and approximately 3/4-inch (2 cm) from edges. Roll up, using wax paper to help, however, remove wax paper.  Place seam side down in 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) glass baking dish or leave it on the cookie sheet, moving it more to the center.  Press the seams closed top and bottom and also the seam that runs the length of the beef roll.

Sauce:  In blender, place tomatoes and blend until the chunks are much smaller or more like a tomato sauce, if desired. In small bowl, combine tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce and liquid sweetener.

Spread half sauce over beef roll and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven 45 minutes. While the beef roll is baking, in frying pan in melted butter, stir fry mushrooms, seasoning to taste with seasoning salt. Stir mushrooms into remaining tomato sauce and spread over roll.  Bake 15 minutes longer.
