HG's Big Beef n' Bacon Meatloaf (Hungry Girl recipe)Submitted by: ADORINGAUNTY
IntroductionRecipe as found on HungryGirl.com website. Recipe as found on HungryGirl.com website.
6 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/4 lbs. raw extra-lean ground beef
1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes
3 tbsp. 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. ketchup
Spray a pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy, about 4 minutes per side.
Remove bacon and, once cool enough to handle, chop or crumble. Set aside.
If needed, clean and dry skillet. Re-spray skillet and return to medium heat.
Add mushrooms and onion. Cook until completely softened, 5 - 7 minutes.
Remove from heat and, once cool enough to handle, blot away any excess moisture with paper towels.
Transfer veggies to a large bowl.
Add about three-fourths of the bacon, and set the rest aside for topping.
To the bowl, add beef, tomatoes, 2 tbsp. BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Transfer mixture to the pan (use loaf pan or sheet pan with edges and form meat into loaf shape); if needed, smooth out the surface with the back of a spatula or spoon.
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.
Bake in the oven until meatloaf is fully cooked, about 50 minutes.
