Keto Italian Turkey Meatloaf

This keto Italian turkey meatloaf recipe uses ground turkey and sweet Italian turkey sausage.  Both are healthy options since they are lower in saturate fat.  Italian Turkey Meatloaf was part of my past rotation, but ya’ll know me, I had to zhuzh it up a bit to make it keto friendly. 

I typically have some keto bread rolls on hand in the freezer which make the perfect substitute for traditional bread crumbs.  I tried using pork rinds but found the bread crumbs work better.

Pairing the meatloaf with cauliflower mash potatoes and green beans are a nod to one of my favorite childhood meals.
