- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 medium sweet onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup parmesan, freshly grated, plus more for garnish
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon fresh basil, finely chopped

- Preheat oven to 375°. In a large mixing bowl, combine beef, pork, salt, pepper, garlic powder, chopped onion, almond flour, egg, parmesan, tomato paste, basil, and parsley, combining with your hands until well mixed. Separate into two even sections. Spray a 4x8 meatloaf pan with olive oil spray. Press first half of meatloaf into loaf pan.

- Lay asparagus stalks lengthwise atop glazed meat. Lay Swiss cheese slices atop asparagus. Press remaining meatloaf mixture into loaf pan, flattening the top. Spread remaining glaze evenly atop meatloaf.
- Bake in oven 1 hour until meat loaf is done through. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
