mega meatloaf

the hubs has been wanting meatloaf for the last week...
so i caved & whipped this up using our leftovers from last week.
i utilized the jalapeno cornbread crumbs
to make a spicy bbq meatloaf that is KILLER!

this meatloaf isn't for the faint of heart:
it's meaty, has a spicy kick, and is deeeeelicious!

mega meatloaf

1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 poblano pepper, diced
1 Tbs garlic, minced
dash worcestershire
2 Tbs mustard
1/2 C kc style bbq sauce, divided
salt & pepper
5 slices of thick cut bacon, cut in half

1. preheat oven to 400 f.

2. in a large bowl, thoroughly combine beef, pork, cornbread crumbs, onion, bell pepper, poblano pepper, garlic, worcestershire, mustard, 1/4 C bbq sauce, salt & pepper.

3. transfer mixture to a 9"x5" loaf pan. top with remaining bbq sauce and bacon slices, overlapping slightly. put loaf pan on top of a baking sheet to catch any spillage.

4. bake for 45 minutes, cover with foil, and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 f.

5. serve with extra bbq sauce on the side!

needless to say,
the hubs was quite pleased.
