Easy Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf… So Easy The Cows Could Make It!

When you are tired of the same ol’, same ol’ when it comes to your meatloaf, try this bacon-wrapped version… it’ll knock your socks off!

I have always been a pretty big fan of meatloaf ever since I was a little girl. My brothers and sister didn’t like it at all, but I would get excited when mom said that’s what we were having for dinner. She always made hers the same way, and it was delicious. Now that I am older with a family of my own, I have tried to alter my meatloaf recipe from hers a little bit so that it can be my very own.

My husband is the one that actually suggested wrapping it in bacon. He said that he had seen it somewhere before, and our entire family just loves bacon, so I didn’t think there was any reason not to. It turned out so fabulous, and it was actually really easy to make.

There is never any whining coming from my dinner table when I am making this. In fact, the kids are usually out to the table as soon as they can smell the bacon cooking up. You can get the recipe by jumping over to the next page!
