Bacon Meatloaf! Words to warm the cockles of a man's heart.
My 12 year old really loves meatloaf. It's right up there at the top of the best things in life, in his book. My husband has never been able to understand why meatloaf doesn't taste like meat (bread fillers, of course). So, I came up with this recipe, and there were no leftovers for Ryan's lunch today. Poor Thor didn't even get much in the way of scrap.BACON MEATLOAF
3 pounds ground beef
1/3 pound white cheddar cheese
1 tsp salt
6 to 8 strips raw bacon
In the food processor, chop the onion and cheese (add the egg to make the process faster). Mix this mess with the beef and salt, and form into a loaf. Cover the top of the meatloaf in strips of bacon, and cook at 350F for about an hour.
I served this with green beans and heart attack potatoes. This dinner gave new meaning to my daughter's phrase "heart attack goodness on a plate!"
