Instead of using breadcrumbs to bind this meatloaf, you tear up bread into small pieces to provide delicate pockets of softness in each slice of meatloaf. For a decadent touch, the meatloaf is wrapped in bacon and served with a velvety mushroom gravy.

Recipe Ingredients for Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf

4 oz mushrooms
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
42 g sherry
1 tbs minced garlic
1 dash salt
1 dash pepper
2 oz white bread
1/4 cup 1% Milk
1 large egg
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 lb. ground veal
1/2 lb. ground pork
2 tbs. dark brown sugar
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
8 slices Kirkland, Maple Bacon

Recipe Directions for Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf

  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350F.

  2. In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms with the onion, sherry, garlic, 1-1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread, milk, and egg. Stir well, lightly mashing the bread until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add the beef, veal, pork, brown sugar, Worcestershire, and the onion-mushroom mixture. Using a large, sturdy wooden spoon or your hands, gently mix just until all the ingredients are blended; you may need to push the meat against the side of the bowl to get the pieces to break up.

  4. Put the meat mixture in a 9x13-inch metal baking pan. Shape the mixture into a rectangular loaf about 10x4 inches. Wrap the strips of bacon around the loaf crosswise, overlapping them slightly and tucking the ends securely under the loaf. Pat the loaf back into shape if necessary.

  5. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads 160F, 60 to 70 minutes. Take the meatloaf out of the oven and position the oven rack about 6 inches from the broiling element. Heat the broiler to high. Broil the meatloaf until the bacon is brown and crisp, about 3 minutes. Let the loaf rest at room temperature for at least 10 minutes.

  6. Use two flat spatulas to transfer the meatloaf to a serving platter. Slice and serve with the mushroom gravy.
