Low carb, gluten free, Bacon Covered Meatloaf on the Traeger!

Some of my favorite cooks on the Traeger are things that aren’t “normal.”  They aren’t burgers or steaks but something like a meatloaf! 

This is a recipe that my wife has done many, many times and it is so good in the oven. So I wanted to see how the same recipe would taste in my Traeger. Well….the results are in and no way will we do this in the oven again! It was absolutely AMAZING!

The awesome thing about this recipe (besides the bacon), is that it is low carb. It uses Parmesan cheese instead of the typical breadcrumbs to keep it together. It works and tastes great!
