Can Almond or Coconut Flour Be Used in Keto Meatloaf?

While some keto meatloaf recipes do call for almond flour to be used as the binding agent, you cannot substitute it for this recipe. This particular keto chicken meatloaf recipe really does require crushed pork rind crumbs. Not only do the pork rinds bind the meat better, but they also add a great deal to the taste and texture of this dish.

Is this Keto Garlic Parmesan Chicken Meatloaf Recipe Good for Meal Prep?

If you are the type that likes to prepare your meals in advance to save yourself time and stress during the week, you are going to love this recipe. This Keto Parmesan Chicken Meatloaf is great for meal prep! You can prep these in multiple different ways:

Prepare in Advance and Bake Later

For advanced preparation, you can do this one of 2 ways.

  • Prepare your mini meatloaves as directed above and then place them in the fridge in an airtight container or covered them tightly with plastic wrap overnight. Place it in the oven the next day.
  • Prepare your mini meatloaves as directed above and then place them in the freezer. Pull the frozen mixture out to thaw in the refrigerator the day before you plan on cooking it.

You can also prepare and bake your mini meatloaves now and store them in the refrigerator. Keep the cooked meatloaf in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Can You Freeze Keto Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf?

As we mentioned earlier, you can freeze meatloaf. You can do this in multiple ways. You can either freeze meatloaf that has been cooked or you can freeze uncooked, prepared meatloaf. Here is a little tutorial on how to do this so you will have the best results.

If freezing prepared, but uncooked meatloaf

For best results freezing uncooked meatloaf, lay plastic wrap into the loaf pan and shape the meatloaf over it. Place in the freezer for roughly an hour, remove from the freezer and wrap the mini meatloaf with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil, placing it back in the freezer.

Although I recommend thawing it for a day in the fridge before cooking, When you are ready to cook the meatloaf, you can bake it straight from the freezer if you are short on time. Simply place it in a pan (after removing the foil and plastic wrap, of course), and bake it the same as in the instructions above, although it will take 1.5 times the length of time to cook.

If freezing cooked meatloaf

If you have already baked the meatloaf, but you would like to freeze it and enjoy it later, you can! Be sure to allow the meatloaf to cool completely, then store in an airtight container in the freezer. Be sure to properly label and date the container. Be sure to use it within 3-4 months of cooking.
