Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf

This is the best meatloaf I have ever eaten. This will be my new recipe!!




Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf 

Ingredients


  • Meatloaf:
    1 cup Whole Milk
    6 slices White Bread
    2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 cup (heaping) Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
    1/4 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
    3/4 teaspoons Salt
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    1/3 cup Minced Flat-leaf Parsley
    4 whole Eggs Beaten
    10 slices Thin/regular Bacon

    Sauce:
    1-1/2 cup Ketchup
    1/3 cup Brown Sugar
    1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
    Tabasco To Taste 

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour milk over the bread slices. Allow it to soak in for several minutes. 
    Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Pour in beaten eggs.
  • With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!)
  • Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
  •  

    Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. 
    Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon. 


  • Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top. Bake for another 15 minutes. Slice and serve with remaining sauce.





Amy's Notes:

A few things I did. I did not add the salt (because there was season salt added) I also omitted the hot sauce so Haylie could eat it as well. I also halved this recipe, and I will definitely make this again. This recipe was adapted from Pioneer Woman

Amy's Notes:

The only thing I changed was I used Tastefully Simple- Onion Onion (about a tablespoon) instead of chopped onion. Very yummy, definitely will make this again! My husband and his friend couldn't stop eating these! Great side for any meal or awesome covered dish to take to a reunion or party!!
