Recipe Collection: Faux Mashed Potatoes and Meat Loaf

Meatloaf recipe - sort of.  I'm a toss this in and toss that in kind of cook.  Not a whole lot of measuring going on with foods I've cooked previously.  What I wanted to share was this part of the recipe - keeping it starch free:
2 lbs 97/3 or 96/4 ground beef
1 egg
1/2 onion
3 stalks celery
3 cloves garlic diced or pressed
1 cup crushed pork rinds (replacing bread crumbs)
1-2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
seasonings to taste
sugar free Barbeque Sauce

Saute the onion, celery and garlic in a little olive oil, on medium low until onion and celery are soft.  In a big bowl, combine all ingredients except the barbeque sauce.  Mush with hands until mixed.  Put in loaf pan, bundt pan or form loaf mound in glass baking dish.  Brush barbeque sauce over loaf.

Bake 1.25 - 1.5 hours at 375 degrees.  Refrain from opening door to check on it.  Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Faux Mashed Potatoes:
1 head cauliflower, steamed until soft.  With mixer, mix like you would for mashed potatoes.  If you need liquid, add a little low salt chicken broth or a little milk/cream.  Season to taste.
