This bacon wrapped meatloaf is made with a blend of pork and beef and cooked in the classic loaf fashion. It's very meaty and a great family dinner.

  • Combine ground beef, ground sausage, crushed crackers, ketchup, onion, eggs, onion powder, and garlic powder in a large bowl until mixed thoroughly, using your hands for best results. Form mixture into a loaf shape.

  • Weave strips of bacon into a basket weave pattern. Place meatloaf in the center and carefully lift and transfer to a loaf pan, so bacon is on the bottom and sides of the pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Allow to sit for 5 minutes before carefully flipping onto a platter.

Cook's Note:

I prefer to use tomato-vegetable juice cocktail (such as V-8(R) juice) in place of ketchup.
