This recipe replaces breadcrumbs or oatmeal with Parmesan or Romano cheese. You can also add a variety of low carb vegetables to this and I think it would taste fine.


  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 3 or 4 tbsp tamari sauce (soy sauce is fine if you are not avoiding gluten)
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 or 4 cloves garlic minced very fine
  • 2 eggs
  • slightly beaten
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup Parmesan / Romano / other shaker-style cheese (or combine!)
  • 1 slice chopped uncooked bacon


1. Mix all the ingredients together. Don't overhandle the meat, just mix enough to incorporate the ingredients.

2. Shape lightly into a casserole or other deep dish.

3. Bake uncovered at 350* for approximately one hour.

4. About 10 minutes before removing from oven, add a thick layer of grated cheese, preferably cheddar, and allow it to melt.
