  1. I made this last night but I think I did something wrong. It was very souppy. It could not be made into a loaf. Should I have drained the tomatoes? It tasted very good and the sauce too but just not firm.
    Also I froze the bacon first and it was easier to cut.

  2. This was delicious and I will definitely make it again. One change that I will make is to try and find a butcher that will ground the bacon for me or try myself in the food processor. It was very difficult to cut without cooking it first. Thanks George

  3. George, I made the dumb move to pop some veggies into the oven to cook along-side….and now it’ll have to cook for an hour and a half to get up to 165°. WHICH IS TO SAY: This is the best meatloaf recipe I’ve ever made and my only complaint is that I’m dumb and it’ll take longer to get into my mouth. (Seriously, yours are the only recipes I don’t have to try out before a dinner party, I just know they’ll be THAT DELICIOUS!)

  4. Damn. I excitedly saw “Fire Roasted” but was disappointed that no actual fire was involved in the making of this meatloaf. ;o)

  5. I just made this for dinner…and I’m pretty sure this is one of the most delicious foods I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating! Holy cow, I cannot believe how amazing this dish is. This might be my favorite Caveman food yet! Awesome job!

  6. Well at first I thought it was too rich for my tastes. Then…I tried it again the following day and WOW…it was awesome! I just finished it all :(. I will definitely be making this again. Question: What do you think about making it as such and then freezing it before cooking? How do you recommend I do that and will it change the cooking time?

    Thank you George! I am really enjoying the recipes you post.

  7. I made this last night and it was delicious! I threw the bacon and all the veggies in my large food processor and they all came out great, which really cut down on prep time. Next time, I plan on draining the liquid from the can of tomatoes first. I had just cleaned my oven this past weekend, and when I opened the oven door after an hour, I found a huge mess in the bottom from the loaf bubbling over. I hate cleaning the oven and wasn’t happy to have to do it twice within just a few days. I’ll probably put the loaf pan on a foil covered cookie sheet, too, just to be on the safe side. (Oh, and George, you might want to fix the spelling of Fahrenheit in the recipe.) :)

  8. Planning on making this tonight… maybe a stupid question but do you mince the bacon raw and add it to the meatloaf? or add cooked bacon to the meatloaf? most bacon recipes I’ve made involve pre cooking the bacon so wanted to be sure i didn’t over cook it!

  9. Success, I made this last night and my wife loved it. My son just picked at it and said it was good except for the onion and peppers. I myself found it pretty awesome, I play on frying up a piece or two tonight for dinner. My wife of course made Mashed potatoes and mac and cheese (She doesnt get the paleo thing yet)
