  • 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...

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...

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!

Definate Keeper!! My family still talks about this recipe & I made it weeks ago. I did modify the recipe taking into consideration several of the comments regarding the actual meatloaf recipe. I...

This meatloaf turned out great! I'm from the Netherlands and had never had or made a meatloaf before but according to my american friends it was one of the best they had ever had... so, thanks!!...

This has got to be the best meatloaf I have ever eaten. My family LOVES it. I added the chili powder, just the right spice to add a little kick.
