We like bacon and we like meatloaf therefore I had to make the family a bacon wrapped meatloaf.
(my meatloaf right when I put it in the oven)
Now this wasn’t my first time making a meatloaf wrapped in bacon, I actually made one last year that I BBQ’d. With this meatloaf I cooked last week, I used a couple ideas I got from The Pioneer Woman’s meatloaf recipe and added some of my own. I got quite a few compliments and I thought it was so good I had meatloaf leftovers for breakfast the next morning.
Here is my version of a bacon wrapped meatloaf….
Bacon Wrapped Meatoaf Recipe
- 3/4 cup milk
- 6 slices of bread
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 tsp seasoning salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 4 eggs beaten
- 10 slices of thin bacon
- 2 sticks of celery
- 1/4 to 1/2 small white onion
- 1/2 Pringles Original flavor crushed
- 3/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1 cup ketchup for sauce
- 1/3 cup brown sugar for sauce
- 1 tsp dry mustard for sauce
Use a food processor and chop celery and onion.
In a bowl add ketchup, brown sugar and dry mustard. Mix to create a sauce and set aside.
In a bowl, add 6 slices of bread and pour milk over bread and set aside to allow milk to absorb into bread.
In a large bowl add ground beef and parmesan cheese and mix. Add remaining ingredients and knead mixture to form into a meatloaf shape.
Take bacon and wrap around meatloaf overlapping each piece and tucking in the bacon on the bottom on each side.
Pour 1/2 of sauce mixture over top and spread to cover bacon.
Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with remaining sauce.
Cook an additional 15 to 20 minutes until done.
My meatloaf out of the oven.. YUM!
Looks great. I’d have to tweak it a bit to be GF but I don’t think it would be too hard.

That looks delicious and I bet it doesn’t dry out because the bacon probably renders all that yummy fat into the meat. I will have to try!
