Bacon Wrapped BBQ Meatloaf
1 cup Whole Milk
6 slices White Sandwich Bread
2 pounds Ground Beef
1 cup (heaping) shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
3/4 teaspoons Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/3 cup Minced Flat-leaf Parsley
4 whole Eggs, Beaten
10 slices Thin/regular Bacon
1 and 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (can use Ketchup)
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour milk over the bread slices in a bowl. Allow it to soak in for several minutes.
Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl.
Pour in beaten eggs.
With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined.
Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!)
Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
Make the sauce: add BBQ sauce, brown sugar and mustard mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon or brush.
Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top.
Bake for another 15 minutes.
Slice and serve with remaining sauce in individual small dipping bowls or just put extra on the plates.
Serve with mashed potatoes.
