Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf



  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 1 T fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 T fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 T Barbecue seasoning
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper


  • 1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 lb bacon
  • extra sauce for basting


Step 1

Add the diced onion, garlic, fresh herbs and ground meat to a large bowl. Combine with your hands.

Step 2

Add the eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and remaining seasonings to the bowl.

Step 3

Mix the meatloaf with your hands, shape and set aside.

Step 4

On a piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper start to make a bacon weave. To make the weave lay out eight strips vertically on a piece of foil or plastic wrap. Then fold over every other vertical piece of bacon in the middle then place a strip horizontally across the vertical bacon. Then unfold the strips. Next fold back the alternate row of bacon that you previously left flat. Then place the next piece of bacon across the vertical strips directly adjacent to the first horizontal piece. Repeat two more times. Once you finish the first half, repeat with the other half.

Step 5

Using the foil/parchment for help, fold the bacon around the meatloaf. Make sure to keep the crease on the top of the meatloaf.

Step 6

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Using a broiler pan or baking sheet with a rack, transfer the meatloaf to the pan.

Step 7

Cook for 1 hour or until the internal temperature is 135 degrees. Then remove and baste the outside of the meatloaf with your favorite sauce.

Step 8

Continue cooking for about 30-45 minutes more or until the internal temperature is 163 degrees. At this point, remove from the oven, cover with a piece of tin foil and let rest for 15 minutes.

Step 9

Slice and enjoy.
