Holy Moly. This recipe took me from wife of the year, to wife of the freaking decade. I am wondering what I need to wrap in bacon to become wife of the century?
My husband did the whole Fat Fasting last week, and so we are currently
obsessed mildly absorbed with this whole Keto thing, that my son and I made a music video. You can see this on my YouTube channel. CLICK HERE.)
Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf
- 1 pound of ground beef
- 14-18 pieces of bacon-I used center cut, but wished I hadn’t, since the regular sliced is longer
- 1 cup of almond meal
- 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- squirt of Dijon mustard. (the recipe called for mustard powder, so I had to improvise)
- salt and pepper
Step One: Weave the bacon.
Step Two: Place the meatloaf pan upside down on top of the bacon weave, then flip it.
Step Three: Mix all the other ingredients, except the cheese. (you could add peppers, mushrooms, or diced celery to this) Yes, I realize there are two flecks of cheese in the bowl. I was really excited and didn’t read the directions.
Step Four: Put the meatloaf mix in the bacon weave topped loaf pan. I layered my meat and the cheese, and it was awesome, so do it that way. Fold the bacon over, so it covers the meat/cheese mix. I put and extra strip down the middle so it looked pretty.
Step Five: Wrap it in foil and stick it in the fridge for 30 minutes. I put this picture in here because people always want to know what is in your fridge. Water, Organic Milk, whipping cream, eggs, cucumbers, protein shakes, pre-portioned veggies and dip, pimento cheese, cherries, and cans of sparkling water.
Step Six: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Take the meatloaf out of the fridge, remove the foil, and flip it onto a broiler pan. Cook for 1 hour. After an hour, crank the oven up to 350 degrees, and cook for 10 more minutes.
Step Seven: Take it out of the oven, and let it sit for about 10 minutes before you slice it. Then devour it! I know this is not the prettiest looking thing, but trust me…it is delicious! I will perfect my weaving skills in future recipes!
