Cooking Tips
*Be careful when you tip the finished meatloaf onto the cutting surface as hot oils will come out too.
**You can make the meat mixture ahead of time. Refrigerate until needed, and then add to the bacon-lined pan.

“This was an easy recipe to follow. I did the dicing earlier in the day, then mixed it all together later. I used 1/2 cup of oatmeal instead of a cup. The result was awesome. Very moist and tasty. Company loved it. Me too!”
