Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers
I love meatloaf and I love love love stuffed peppers so I finally decided to do what I’ve been thinking about for a long long time, Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers. Glad I finally did too, they were a filling and delicious paleo meal for me and my husband. In fact, so filling we each had half a pepper for dinner and the other half for lunch the next day. I kind of like having a premade lunch waiting for me it the fridge. Except I wanted to eat it for breakfast, that part was kind of lame but the no-cook lunch part was good. Looking for a good low carb/paleo stuffed pepper this is the perfect recipe.
Paleo Stuffed Peppers
And yes they are paleo, no breadcrumbs just egg holding it all together in there. If you’re NOT paleo, by all means, add bread crumbs or oatmeal or whatever you use. I like to add a 1/2 cup of almond meal to my meatloaf recipes to help bind them and keep them low carb. But because these are in peppers you don’t need to do that. You can of course but there is no need to add a binder.

Not Low Carb or Paleo??
If you are not paleo or low carb feel free to add a swipe of ketchup on the top or barbecue sauce or whatever you happen to like. Myself I like a little tomato sauce mixed up with smoke flavor and a bit of maple syrup but I figure everyone has THEIR favorite way.
