I know what you are thinking… really Kelsey, meatloaf for breakfast?! But PEOPLE! You know I would never steer you wrong! When I do a Whole30 and want to make sure I eat enough at each meal so I don’t need to snack, I find that protein at breakfast is key! This is also a bonus because you can make a loaf on Sunday and have it in the fridge for the week. You can do a slice with an egg or some leftover veggies for the perfect meal to get your day going. In this recipe I went off my love for Chicken Apple Sausage with ground chicken, chopped apples, applesauce and spices! I also used the applesauce so we could avoid adding eggs and coconut flour to avoid nuts and make this whole dish nut, grain, egg and dairy free! Does it get any better?
Yeah, I didn’t think so! This Whole30 Breakfast Meatloaf is also great for summer prep. These hot and BUSY days demand quick breakfasts and it becomes so easy to fall into a toast or granola bar routine which then can turn into MASS HUNGER by 11 AM and running to the nearest food source. Not like i’m speaking from experience or anything! 🙂 I kid I kid, who hasn’t fallen into that trap? Especially when you are out and about having fun during Summer. If those cases do arrive though, be prepared!! I suggest keeping some RX bars or some meat sticks around in your purse or car in case you get hungry while out and about. Time slips by quickly in the summer and you really don’t want to be stranded at the beach or a little league game with the snack bar as your only option. So let’s prep for success and make some gosh darn meatloaf for breakfast!
In a large bowl combine chicken, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, fennel, allspice, chopped apples, applesauce, coconut flour, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir just until evenly combined, pour into a greased loaf pan and spread into an even layer.
In a small bowl combine chopped potatoes, avocado oil, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon garlic powder and toss to coat. Pour potatoes on top of chicken and press down to set.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, until cooked through and potatoes are browned.
