Did someone say Bacon?

Yup! Bacon wrapped meatloaf that is! Mmmm… look at all that bacon…

Get these things ready:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/2 c plain yogurt
  • 2 lbs meatloaf mix (50% ground chuck, 25% found pork, 25% ground veal)
  • 1/2 c almond flour
  • 1/3 c minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 8 oz bacon (may need more depending on loaf shape)

And then you:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° Done? Ok, read on!
  2. Toss that olive oil into a small pan and heat it up. When it’s hot and ready add the garlic and onion; sauté until softened. Allow to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl add the eggs, thyme, salt, pepper, mustard, worcestershire, hot sauce, and yogurt. 
  4. Grab a whisk and mix it up! Once you’ve done that, slowly incorporate the meat into your egg mixture. (If you want you can put the meat into a larger bowl and slowly work the mixture into the meat… but who wants to dirty another bowl?)
  5. Next, add the cooked onions and garlic, almond flour, and parsley. Get friendly with the meat… I use my hands. Combine well.
  6. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil (I hate doing dishes). Shape the meat into 1 or 2 loaves, as you can see I made two to reduce cooking time.
  7. Cover the loaves with the bacon, overlapping each slice slightly to completely cover the loaves. Tuck the edges underneath. 
  8. Finally, bake the loaves until the bacon is crispy… this usually takes an hour. To make sure the meatloaf is ready, check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. It should read 160°. When it’s ready, serve with your favorite organic ketchup or steak sauce!

What kind of veggies do you think go best with meatloaf? I have a great recipe for braised swiss chard, pretty sure it has bacon too… maybe I’ll try that!
