  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x11-inch baking dish.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat until edges just start to curl, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. Reserve about 1 tablespoon bacon drippings in the skillet.
  3. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the bacon drippings until onion is softened, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
  4. Mix cooled onion and garlic, ground beef, 1/2 cup barbeque sauce, bread crumbs, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, oregano, and chili powder together with your hands in a large bowl. Form beef mixture into a log-shaped meatloaf; place in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Wrap partially-cooked bacon slices around the meatloaf, tucking the ends of bacon underneath the loaf.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Brush bacon-wrapped meatloaf with 3 tablespoons barbeque sauce. Continue baking until no longer pink in the center, about 10 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

This had a good flavor, but it was way too wet to form into a log. I suggest cutting the egg to one and the bbq sauce to 1/4 cup, or add it little by little. I used 1/2 cup bread crumbs as the...

Good recipe with a few changes. I have a big family so I used 2 1/2 pounds of meat, used ketchup and BBQ sauce in the meatloaf and also about a tablespoon of hot sauce and omitted the chili pow...

You don't need to form log if you use loaf pan. The wetness described will cook away by adding 10-15 minutes and be really moist. Dryness is biggest complaint of meatloaf. I add cheddar cheese...

yummy, easy, and quick... family loved it!

I made this today instead of turkey for a holiday dinner. It tasted great, and was extremely moist. I took other reviewers comments into consideration and tweaked the ingredients a bit. I wan...

This is my favorite recipe. I have made it twice. I prefer the onions carmelized for a sweeter taste of onion. I have also used both chili and cajun spice and equally good. I make it with 1-1/2 ...

I added bell peppers and 1/4 onion soup mix, my family loved this meatloaf

I made this for 2 bacon lovers. They thought it was awesome! I am just not a big fan of meatloaf. However, I really enjoyed making the recipe and will change up some of the ingredients next time...
