2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 cup cooked wild rice
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced, if desired
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1-3/4 lbs. lean ground turkey
3 Tbsp. chili sauce
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp. smoked paprika
3 slices bacon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In heavy skillet, heat olive oil and add minced onion. Cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Pour into large bowl and add cooked wild rice, hot pepper, beaten eggs, tomato juice, milk, basil, and thyme. Mix thoroughly. Add ground beef and ground turkey and mix gently but thoroughly until combined. Form into a loaf on a slitted broiler pan.

In small bowl, combine chili sauce, mustard and paprika. Spread over the meatloaf. Then lay the bacon slices on top. Bake at 375 degrees for about 1-1/2 hours, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. You may need to reduce the heat to 350 degrees if the loaf is getting too brown. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes before slicing. Serves 6-8
