We borrowed this delicious recipe for bacon wrapped meatloaf from the Pioneer Woman and tweaked it with Mrs Miller's Homemade Grape Jam.
Our family loved it!
1/2 c. whole milk
3 slices white bread
1 pound ground beef
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
sprinkle seasoning salt
freshly ground black pepper
sprinkle with parsley (minced)
2 whole eggs
8 oz. Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Add the bread to a large bowl and pour the milk on top of the slices. Let them soak for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining meatloaf ingredients and use your hands to combine.
Form the meat into a loaf and place it over a dripping tray to allow the fat to drain. Lining the bottom of the pan with foil will make for easier cleanup.
Line the bacon around the loaf and carefully tuck the ends together. The bacon can be used to help support the shape of the loaf. I like to line them so that they are touching, but not overlapping so that you can easily slice in between each piece of bacon when it’s cooked.
Combine the sauce ingredients and brush 1/3 of it over the meatloaf.
Bake the meatloaf for 45 minutes. Remove it from the oven and brush another 1/3 of the sauce over it. Bake for another 25 minutes or until finished.
Remove from the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes prior to slicing, letting it rest allows the juices to absorb back into the meat, cutting in too early will cause the juice to run out of the loaf.
Serve with the remaining sauce and enjoy! This is delicious with mashed potatoes and green beans!
