Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Duck Butter (purchase here) or Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Get-R-Smoked Smoked Paprika (purchase here)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 9 ounces thin-cut bacon
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese diced
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Instructions

    Prep:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan first with parchment paper and then with 2/3 of the bacon, leaving an overhang. OR line a rimmed baking sheet with baking parchment and lay 2/3 of the bacon on top if you want to bake without a pan.
    Make meat mix:
  1. Mix ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, duck butter and spices in a large bowl
    Shape meatloaf:
  1. Shape a long log with 2/3 of the meat mixture and fit it inside the loaf pan (OR on top of the bacon on the baking sheet, if baking without a loaf pan).
  2. Make a crease down the middle and add the mozzarella cheese to it.
  3. Cover with the remaining meat mixture.
  4. Fold the bacon overhang on top and cover entirely with the remaining 1/3 of bacon. Spread with 1/3 of the barbecue sauce.
    Bake:
  1. Bake in the middle of the preheated oven for 40 minutes.
  2. Spread with another 1/3 of the barbecue sauce.
  3. Continue baking for another 20 minutes, then spread with the remaining sauce right as it comes out of the oven.
  4. Allow the meatloaf to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  5. If you baked in a loaf pan, VERY CAREFULLY drain it before removing from the pan
