I’m doing terrible sticking to my posting schedule, aren’t I? Oh well, at least I’m posting, right?
I had planned to post this recipe yesterday, but the day just got away from me. I need to share this recipe, I mean really need to. I made this last week and again last night. It is the best Meatloaf you will ever eat. For reals. And it’s so stinking easy to make!
I came across a recipe for a Cheeseburger Bacon Roll, check out this woman’s blog and recipes, seriously, you must! She is a low carb blogger, but even if you aren’t eating low carb the recipes are great. I’m sure her version exactly as is is absolutely superb. But, as I’ve said before, I’m more of a look for recipes for inspiration kind of person. I will follow baking recipes usually, but cooking I almost never follow exactly. So, I took her amazing recipe and as always, made it my own. Even though my husband has no idea where I got the recipe from, he is eternally grateful for this blogger who inspired my version of which the “mmmm” and “this is so good” comments are repeated often throughout the meal…which of course doesn’t last long because I think he has one slice gone in about 2 bites.
1 1/2 pounds Ground Beef
12 slices of bacon
2 small jalapenos, diced
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Parsley flakes
Salt and Pepper
1 to 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Step 1: Make a “bacon weave”
For more details on how to make your bacon weave for the recipe definitely go to her blog post, she has pictures showing you exactly how to do it if you don’t know how. And be sure to check out some of her other great recipes while you’re there.
Step 2: Flatten out your ground beef into a “square” and top with spices and jalapenos, spread em all over. The picture is the first time I made it, I put twice as many jalapenos on when I made it yesterday and that is how I will make it now…yumm!
Step 3: Cover that sucker in cheese!
Step 4: Roll it all up!
Step 5: Roll it all up in your BACON!!
Step 6: Bake it! Bake at 400* F for 1 hour, then let sit for about 15 minutes before cutting into it.
Step 7: The best step of all! EAT IT!! Cut into slices and enjoy with whatever side you desire.
