What every family needs is a good meatloaf recipe, and this one is the best I’ve found so far. I’m saying “so far”because I’ll probably keep trying new ones for as long as I live.
It’s not that I don’t think this is good enough – in fact, it’s just the opposite. I think this meatloaf is so tasty that it’s going to be hard, if not impossible, to top this. But that’s exactly why I occasionally search for new recipes. If I get lucky, some day I’m going to end up with another one that is even more delicious!
That’s exactly what happened to me with this recipe. I had made plenty of meatloaves before; I love the stuffed ones, and also the mini meatloaves (those are the kids’ favorite) but as soon as I realized you could cover your whole meatloaf with bacon, I knew it was going to be awesome.
You can choose turkey bacon if you want to make this a bit leaner – but personally I think you should always go for the real thing! Choose your favorite brand or try special flavors each time.
