Lover’s MeatloafLover's Meat Loaf


  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×11-inch baking dish.

Place bacon in a large skillet and cook until edges just start to curl. Reserve about 1 tablespoon bacon drippings in the skillet.
Cook onion and garlic in the bacon drippings until softened. 
Remove from heat and cool.

Mix all ingredients except 3 tablespoons barbeque sauce together in a large bowl. Form beef mixture into a log-shaped meatloaf; place in the prepared baking dish.

Bake for 35 minutes. Brush meatloaf with 3 tablespoons barbeque sauce. Continue baking until no longer pink in the center, about 10 more minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
