Danish Meat Loaf

I love meatloaf, especially the danish version. I might have something to do with the fact that everything tastes better with a little bacon on top, who nows. The danish word "forloren hare" roughly translates to mock hare which I remember being really confused about growing up since no hare was harmed making this dish. I made a few modifications to fit the paleo standards, and I hate to say this but it is so much better than the one my mom makes (sorry if you read this mom):

500g ground pork
1 egg
4 tablespoons almond flour
2 dl coconut milk
1 onion finely cut
200g sliced mushrooms
Butter or olive oil
4-5 slices of bacon
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix ground pork, egg, almond flour, coconut milk and onion in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Leave the mixture in the fridge for app 15minutes. In the meantime fry the mushrooms in butter until the get soft and then mix them into the meat batter. Shape mixture into a loaf in an ungreased baking pan, and top it off with bacon (see picture). Bake for app 1 hour. There might be "soup" surrounding the loaf which you can just throw away or freeze for later use as stock in a real soup.
