Let’s Do Something Naughty….

My family has decided they will support me in cooking /eating healthier and I love that about them. Before we do that, it’s time to do something that I’m pretty sure is illegal in like 5 states. Let’s break a law together …. Behold, bacon wrapped meatloaf!
 
 
For the loaf:
1 cup milk
6 slices plain old white bread
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp Lawry’s
salt n pepa
1/3 cup minced parsley
4 eggs
10 slices uncured bacon
 
For the sauce:
1 1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp dry ground mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
 
First place the bread in  a bowl and pour the milk over. Soak for 5 minutes. Turn the oven on to 350 degrees.
 
 
Place mooshy bread in a bowl and add meat and parmesan.
 
 
 Add Lawry’s, salt n pepa, parsley and eggs.
 
 
Hope you are ready to get your hands dirty. In fact, I recommend you take some aggression out on this step. Maybe this part will count as exercise.
 
 
Make sure you use a broiler pan. If you don’t you will have some greasy loaf and that is not cool. Underneath the pan is a layer of foil to catch all that bad grease. Makes for easier cleanup later. So form the meat mixture into a loafy shape and place on broiler pan.
 
 
 
Wrap your loaf in a bacon blanket. Can you believe this????
 
 
Now make the sauce. Combine the ketchup, sugar, mustard and Worcestershire. I love this pic, it makes me giggle.
 
 
Moisturize the loaf with 1/3 of the sauce.
 
 
Bake that baby for 45 minutes. Glaze it again with another third of the sauce and bake for 20 more minutes. Right about now everyone in your house should be drooling. No scratch that, the whole freaking block should be at your front door soon. See …..
 
 
Serve with the remaining sauce because there isn’t enough sauce on this thing yet.
 
 
Enjoy your borderline heart attack. Also make sure to go to bed on time so you can go to the gym for 4 hours the next day.
