Duke Veal MeatLoaf Recipe - Low Carb

uh... recipe on my blog!? Stranger things have happened! O.oAnd one for GROUND VEAL?!?! Really? Um... yes, 'fraid so!

Here's the story folks - the low carb way of eating is working wonders for my husband and I - and well, veal is on the list of acceptable things to eat! :D. There was a pound of ground veal on sale a bit ago and I grabbed it -why not? Mix it up a bit with the other meats.

Later on - I'm scratching my head every time I think about that ground pound of veal in the freezer. "What am I gonna do with that?!"

*think, think, think*

Patties? No - might as well just have a burger. Not even sure we're too keen on the taste of veal yet :s.

Brown it? With seasonings?? Uh... okay but what seasonings?? Again, we sure we'll like the taste?


Not knowing a great deal about veal - I put off using that ground pound for a bit.

Funny enough, tonight I wanted to go out and get a meatlovers omelet from a diner but know to spend money right now, just isn't a great idea... so.. internets here I come!

I'm a searchin' and a huntin' for a recipe for ground veal, low carb. Com'n google don't let me down! :D

Up came a few websites and after a good bit of time I found a Veal Loaf recipe. Hrm, hrm, hrm... not low carb.

*scratches head*

I can work with this, yes, yes I can. It may call for bread crumbs, but instead I! - have cheddar cheese! It may call for margarine, but no! I have real butter! and oh you non low carb recipe - you may call for ricotta cheese but I have none! I will use cream cheese and you WILL taste yummy! I declare it! SO let it be written, so let it be done ;0) tee hee....

I must share this low carb yummy recipe with you - if only to keep a record of it for myself to refer back to in the future to recreate the tastiness! :D

For YOUR reference ;) HERE is the original recipe.

What to call my recipe now...

ah-ha! DUKE VEAL LOAF :D (such wit! ;0) lol)

2 teaspoons butter
1 stalk minced celery,
2 tablespoons minced onion,
1 lb ground veal
1/4 cup cream cheese (or ricotta cheese)

IF any of you try this - would love to know if it was a hit for you or not! :)

As always thanks for reading!


  1. LOL, I am totally in search of a Larb Gai (Thai) recipe I can handle so I can make it at home. It's with ground chicken, chilies, lime, mint as far as I can tell at the restaurants and they serve it cold with iceberg lettuce leaves to make little lettuce cups. If you like spicy, this could be another low carb to add to the mix.

    Thanks, for all your kind words. They really mean so much to me :)

    I got off my butt and I moved my blog, for a whole new look and feel.

    more to come, promise!

  2. Hi sweeetheart!

    Oh my word, you're making me hungry. I'm one of those people that start salivating and needing food when I hear any mentioning of food.


  3. OK I tried to make that Larb Gai recipe this past weekend. I didn't have all the called for ingredients but as I tend to make it up as I go normally in my cooking, I went for it anyway.

    It was almost there. It needs a little bit more work. Even though I scarfed it down it's not ready for prime time yet :P


Comments are the best! Please feel free to say hello and join the conversation. :) I always love hearing from old, new and familiar faces ;)
