Bacon Meat Loaf

Another from Hungry Girl.

  • 5 slices turkey bacon
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms (canned)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (I omitted, and used minced onions)
  • 1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup canned crushed/diced tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp. light hickory-flavored BBQ sauce, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. reduced sugar ketchup

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Microwave bacon until crispy, then crumble when cooled.
  3. Place mushrooms, minced onions, three-fourths of the bacon in a large bowl, and set the rest aside for topping. To the bowl, add beef, tomatoes, 2 tbsp. BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Transfer mixture to the loaf pan; if needed, smooth out the surface with the back of a spatula or spoon. Set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, combine ketchup with remaining tablespoon of BBQ sauce and mix well. Evenly top meatloaf with the BBQ-ketchup mixture and sprinkle with remaining bacon.
  6. Bake in the oven until meatloaf is fully cooked, about 50 minutes.
