Bacon Wrapped Mini Meatloaf
Forming a meatloaf into individual sized portions and wrapping in bacon means more bacon goodness with each serving.
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 cup breadcrumbs (regular or panko)
½ cup milk
½ cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
½ tsp seasoned salt (Lawry’s)
¼ tsp black pepper
12 pieces thin sliced bacon
1 cup red wine, broth or sherry
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Combine all of the ingredients except the bacon and wine in a large bowl. With clean hands, gently combine the ingredients well, being careful to not over mix or the meatloaves may become tough.
Form into six equal sized oval loaves and wrap each with 2 slices of the bacon to cover the surfaces evenly. Place in a large baking pan an inch or more apart to help the bacon to brown.
Bake for 45 minutes uncovered. For extra brown bacon place under a preheated broiler for a few minutes if desired.
Drain off all of the grease from the pan and make a sauce by deglazing the bottom of the pan with 1 cup broth, red wine, sherry or a combination of these liquids. Boil until the liquid reduces slightly and serve with the meatloaves.
Makes six mini meatloaves.
