Why I Love This Recipe

Remember hearing that bacon makes everything taste better? This meatloaf is definitely no exception!


Ingredients You'll Need

3 slices white bread, crusts removed
2 large eggs
1/2 c. milk
3 - 4 springs parsley, chopped up
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 c. finely diced onion
1 tbsp. Kosher salt
1/2 cup. finely diced celery
2 tsp. freshly ground pepper & more to taste
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 lb. sliced smoked bacon
3/4 cup finely grated carrot
2/3 c. brown sugar, packed
1 lb. ground sirloin
1 tbsp. Coleman's yellow ground mustard
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 tbsp. tomato paste


Directions

Heat the oven to 375'F.


Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes and place in a small bowl.


Pour milk over it & set aside.


Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.


Add onion, celery & garlic; cook until soft and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes.


Remove from heat & let cool.


Line a pan with foil to make clean-up easier.


This baby makes a mess (although it comes up pretty easily if you fill the pan in hot, soapy water).


Place carrots in a large mixing bowl.


Add the milk-bread mixture, meat, eggs, parsley, Dijon, salt & pepper and onion mixture.


Combine well.


Place mixture in a large ungreased baking dish (a 9 x 13 cake pan is about right) or roasting pan.


Shape into a 5 x 12 inch loaf.


Run bacon around the sides of the loaf, then overlap bacon across the top, covering meat, completely.


Season with salt & pepper.


In a small bowl, combine sugar, ground mustard & tomato paste to make a glaze.


Brush meatloaf all over with glaze.


Bake, brushing every 15 minutes or so with glaze, until juices run clear when loaf is pierced with a 2 pronged fork & the bacon is crisp, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.


Let cool 10 minutes before slicing.


** Once the bacon fat starts to run (probably around your second basting--30 minutes into the cooking), spoon off several spoonfuls of fat. Spoon a little more off every time you baste, so it's not sitting in fat as it bakes.
