I was to make meatloaf for the football shindig. I have a great meatloaf recipe (sorry, this is not a recipe post), which turns out wonderful every single time, except this time. It was fine, but it wasn't the wonderfulness it normally is. I think it might have been the quality of my onion. I'm not sure.
Thing is, this meatloaf is ugly. It just always looks awful! Maybe that's why i don't have any pictures of it on here.
So, for Sunday, i decided to try something i've been wanting to do for a while. Kris inspired me with her Bacon Explosion recipe, and i decided to cover the top of my meatloaf in a bacon weave. I took Kris' advice and cooked my bacon a little before i wrapped the meatloaf, and it worked out very well.
My biggest concern with this was the cuttability of the bacon. I wanted to make nice meatloaf slices, and i was concerned that the bacon would make a mess of it. It didn't though. I was easily able to cut beautiful bacon wrapped slices of meatloaf. It was gorgeous! Now i just have to figure out why it didn't taste as good. Maybe if i can wrap it in bacon and make it taste good, the Texans will win next time.
