so i’ve made this meatloaf 3x in the course of 2 months.

the crazy thing is

1. i don’t eat red meat

AND

2. i don’t like meatloaf even if i made it with ground turkey

BUT

i like to make meatloaf….i like to make people happy with a homecooked family meal :-)

now you ask why have i made 3x? let me tell you…

round one was for my dad’s side for Christmas. round two was for my sister-in-law who loves meatloaf. round 3 my brother-in-law that heard about said meatloaf from his sister and asked if i would make for him. so back up to round one..i was planning on making two different meatloaf’s and i ended up with extra ground beef so i searched another meatloaf recipe to try and came across this bacon wrapped meatloaf – and it ended up being the favorite! it almost didn’t happen but gosh glad it did.

this one is my photo…how i cooked it. just to give you an idea.

bacon covered meatloaf

you can find the recipe at The Pioneer Woman

i didn’t change a thing….Ree of The Pioneer Woman calls it “My Favorite Meatloaf”

so if you love meatloaf or someone you love loves meatloaf…make this recipe for them.

Oh, was my meatloaf that bad and did I make you eat it often? : )
I wonder if this would work out using ground turkey and turkey bacon? Have to try.
love

I have to say, we are scared of meatloaf around here (bad childhood memories). But BACON topped meatloaf? I think I could live with that 😉

Don’t let my boyfriend see this recipe!!! I don’t eat meat (so I sure wouldnt eat this meatloaf) but he’s obsessed with meatloaf AND bacon, so I feel like if he even knew of this recipes existence, the smell of meatloaf and bacon would forever be in my home! haha

I love meatloaf with ground turkey or lauras lean ground beef. wrapping it in bacon is a genius idea :)
