An immensely flavorful and easy to make basic meatloaf wrapped in savory bacon that is so delicious, you will most definitely make on it repeat.
If you have been following me on social media, you would have noticed that I recently started my very own cottage food business, Baked Goods by Miss Crumbs A Lot and kicked it off with my favorite Singapore Style Pineapple Tarts in Houston, Katy & Sugarland. Baking these delicious sweet treats every week leaves a gorgeous aroma in my kitchen all the time and my kids are often welcomed home with these fresh out of the oven Pineapple Tarts. If you are in the Houston & its surrounding area and would like to place an order, please feel free to contact me here. I also hope to have available a variety of other baked goods soon.
Adding on a regular baking schedule on top of my busy mom schedule definitely was not an easy task. It took me a couple of weeks to work out a routine as I experimented with several processes to try and make things more efficient while still being able to be 100% present for my family. Needless to say, attempting to get everything done while the kids are in school has become even more challenging now. I have to remind myself to prioritize my to-do items and not take on more than I can handle.
Last week, I delivered a couple of boxes of the Pineapple Tarts to a fellow Singaporean living in Houston. I had lunch with her, we talked about our families and about how we managed our roles as stay at home mothers. She asked me, like many others have before, how do I manage my home baked goods business, have time to work out or as of now, train for a half marathon, write my blog, complete my house chores, make my school runs, after-school activity runs and still make dinner in time for my family? I laughed and said that I am the Queen of "Timers". I have found great success with preparing dinners in advance and setting it on a timer to cook in my oven or my slow cooker.
Just like this Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf recipe. Such an intensely flavorful basic meatloaf, wrapped with savory bacon, served with some marinara sauce and vegetables. Not to mention, it was extremely easy to make. I can prepare this dish before the kids come home from school and have it ready on a baking tray in the refrigerator. When ready to cook, simply pop it in the oven or like me, set it on a timer while you head out for after school activities with the kids. I have made this recipe a couple of times now and my family absolutely love it. And with it being so easy to prepare, t is definitely going to make a frequent appearance on our dinner table.
Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf
by Miss Crumbs A Lot, adapted from Delish
2 lbs Ground Beef
1 medium Onion (chopped)
3 cloves Garlic (chopped)
1 tsp Dried Oregano
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan
1/2 cup Almond Flour
1 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
12 to 16 strips of Bacon
Salt & Pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 deg F. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and grease it with some cooking spray or olive oil.
2. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, chopped onions, chopped garlic, dried oregano, shredded cheddar cheese, grated parmesan, almond flour, 2 eggs and light soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Shape into a large loaf and place it on the greased baking tray. Wrap the meatloaf with bacon strips.
4. Bake in 400 deg F for about 1 hour or until the bacon is crispy and the beef is cooked through. If the bacon is cooking too quickly and is getting burnt, cover the meatloaf with a piece of foil.
5. Serve with warm marinara sauce, if desired.
