Mini Meatloaf Wrapped in Bacon

I got this recipe from Bossy Italian Wife. Check it out for a step-by-step tutorial of the recipe.


1 pound ground meat (I used venison) 
1/2 onion, finely diced
2 eggs
2 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 cup breadcrumbs2 heaping tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon basil
2 dashes cayenne pepper
Palmful of salt
pepper, as desired
8 pieces of bacon
ketchup or barbecue sauce (for topping) 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a mixing bowl combine the ground meat, onion, eggs, garlic, breadcrumbs, worcestershire, milk, basil, cayenne, salt and pepper. Using your hands, (and the using your hands part is important, but remember to take your rings off!) mix everything together until evenly combined. 

Divide the meat mixture into four even portions. Using your hands, pat the smaller meat portions into individual meat loaves. 

Wrap each loaf with two pieces of the bacon. Place the loaves on a baking pan. 

Top each loaf with either ketchup or barbecue sauce. 

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. At the end of the hour, put a bit more ketchup (or barbecue) or each loaf and put the oven on Lo Broil. Continue cooking another 7-10 minutes to crisp up the bacon.
