  • Carbs per serving:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 700 g ground beef or ground lamb or ground pork
  • 120 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 125 ml shredded cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 200 g sliced bacon
  • 300 ml heavy whipping cream, for the gravy
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce 
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Fry the onion until soft but not browned.
  • Mix the ground meat in a bowl. Add all other ingredients, except the bacon. Mix well, but avoid overworking it because this can make the end result too dense.
  • Form into a loaf and place in a baking dish. Wrap the loaf in bacon.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for about 45 minutes. If the bacon begins to overcook before the meat is done, cover with aluminum foil and lower the heat a bit.
  • Save the juices that have accumulated in the baking dish, and use to make the gravy. Mix the juices and the cream in a smaller sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil and lower the heat and let simmer for 10–15 minutes until it has the right consistency. If you want, use a little soy sauce to taste.
