  • 2 cloves garlic (medium, diced)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces bacon (medium, diced)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion (medium, diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (medium, diced)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces bacon slices

Instructions

  • Preparation Preheat oven to 400°F In a large bowl, add the eggs, parmesan cheese, tomato paste, heavy cream, onions and all the spices, mix well.
  • Add in the ground beef and pork, and mix until combined, but do not over mix.
  •  Set the bowl aside and grab your bacon! Lay out half of the strips of bacon vertically, very close together, on a piece of parchment paper sprayed with nonstick spray.
  •  Fold back every other piece of bacon and lay a strip of bacon tightly close to the piece running horizontally.
  • Put the folded pieces back and fold back the other set of bacon strips, adding another piece horizontally.
  •  Continue the process until you have used all the strips of bacon.
  • Add the meatloaf mixture over the top of the bacon weave and spread out evenly.
  •  Add the shredded cheddar down the middle and use the parchment paper to help you roll it into a loaf shape.
  •  Place a baking dish over the top and invert the loaf so that the weave is on top.
  •  Make sure the sides are sealed up with the meat mixture and no cheese is showing on either side.
  • Bake for 60-80 minutes and check during the last 15 minutes to make sure the bacon is not burning.
  • If its getting too browned, cover with aluminum foil for the remaining cooking time.
