3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons oregano
1/2 tablespoon sea salt

If you have a meat grinder, use it to grind your bacon and beef together, if not mince your bacon as fine as possible and combine in a mixing bowl with your beef.
Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl, and using your hands mix well to ensure an even distribution of ingredients.
You can now form it into a loaf and put it in a pyrex dish, put it in a loaf pan, or form into meatballs and put in the pan.
for an hour or until the meat is cooked through, internal temperature
needs to be at least 165ºF because of the bacon.
Remove from oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
Serve drizzled with some barbecue sauce.
