Spinach, artichokes, pepperoni - what more could you want in a meatloaf?

Ingredients

    1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

    2 c. spinach

    1 egg

    1/4 c. tomato sauce

    2 tsp. garlic

    1/4 c. almond flour

    1 tsp. sea salt

    1 tsp. black pepper

    1 tsp. Italian seasoning

    1 lbs. ground beef

    1/2 c. artichoke hearts

    15 turkey pepperoni

    1/2 c. tomato sauce

    1/2 c. mozzarella cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add torn spinach to the skillet, and cook until dark green and wilted. Set aside.

Use a fork to lightly beat the egg in a bowl. Add ¼ cup tomato sauce, minced garlic, almond flour, and spices; mix well. Add ground beef to the bowl and mix it all up using hands. Add wilted spinach, chopped artichokes, and halved pepperoni.

Move mixture to a loaf pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 40 minutes.

Remove meatloaf from oven. Spread ½ cup tomato sauce on top (use a spoon or spatula to spread it out), and sprinkle shredded cheese on top of that. Return to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and starting to brown.

Remove from oven, and let sit for a couple minutes before cutting into the meatloaf.
