Is there anything more tasty (or more comforting) than meatloaf? If you're a bacon lover, it turns out there is. The recipe below combines moist, tender meatloaf with crispy bacon for a delicious single-serve treat.
The ideal way to make these meatloaves is in a muffin tin; this will ensure that each meatloaf is the same size and they all bake evenly.

Bacon-Wrapped Mini Meatloaf
10 minutes
1 hour 30 minutes
1 hour 40 minutes
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, small diced
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1 egg
1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
12 thin slices bacon
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat the butter in a skillet and add the onion. Season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly browned, about 12 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Combine the beef, pork, egg, breadcrumbs, milk and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl, using your hands to mix the ingredients without crushing the meat. Fold in the cooked onion.
In a greased or nonstick muffin tin, arrange the bacon slices so they form a loop, sticking to the edges of each of the wells. Fill each well with the meat mixture.
Spread the barbecue sauce over the top of each of the loaves.
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until the internal temperature of the loaves is 160 degrees F.
