Bacon Cheddar Meatloaf
Always looking for new ground beef recipes, this is great one!
We tried this spin on our traditional meatloaf recipe this week, and it was wonderful! I was referred to the original recipe at : http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/bacon-cheddar-meatloaf-recipe/index.html from a friend, thanks Joslyn!
If you are dairy free, just remove the whipping cream & cheese from the recipe.
2 pieces of bacon, chopped (I used beef bacon)
1/2 medium onion, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg yolk
1/2 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 lb ground beef
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Glaze: 2 Tablespoons tomato paste, 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 3 Tablespoons water- mix all in a bowl, set aside.
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Sautee chopped bacon in skillet. Once crispy, remove pieces & place in a medium bowl, reserve fat in skillet. Cook onions and garlic in grease until onions are translucent. Add the cooked onions & garlic to the bowl, also add the rest of the ingredients (except the glaze). Mix with hands until thoroughly combined and shape in a small log on glass baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes, spread the glaze over the loaf and cook for 10 more minutes (until the inside is no longer pink). Enjoy!
