How to make bacon wrapped mini meatloaves

It’s so easy! Scroll down to the recipe card for the detailed instructions. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Start by mixing together the beef and the spices.
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 portions.
  3. Line 8 muffin cups with bacon and place the mini meatloaves inside.
  4. Bake 30 minutes at 400°F.

Bacon makes everything better

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that bacon-wrapped *anything* is amazing. Bacon is fatty and flavorful, and it imparts wonderful juiciness and flavor when used in cooking.

In the case of meatloaf, it’s great at preventing the meatloaf from drying out.

But isn’t bacon terribly unhealthy?

Processed meats have been linked to diseases. And while the actual risk is very small, and the research inconclusive, I don’t think we should ignore that research. My own personal choice is to consume processed meats in moderation.

How to serve bacon-wrapped mini meatloaves

I usually serve these bacon wrapped mini meatloaves as a dinner party snack or appetizer. But once in a while, per my family’s request, I make them for dinner.

Since they’re so rich, I like to serve them with a simple side of vegetables. And I prefer vegetables that I can cook in the same 400°F oven, such as roasted red onions, jicama fries, or roasted asparagus.

What to do with leftover bacon wrapped mini meatloaves?

You can keep the leftovers in the fridge, in an airtight container, for 3-4 days. Reheat them gently in the microwave, covered, on 50% power. The bacon will lose it crispiness, but they will still be tasty.
