Possibly the Worst Meatloaf on the Planet

Possibly the Worst Meatloaf on the Planet

Ha!  Did I get your attention?

This is the number one requested supper of my son-in-law.  I make it every year for his birthday.  Since I really don’t measure anything and always just make it from memory – he says it is always just a little different (sometimes I add diced celery or grated carrot, not a lot, just a little.  Maybe a half a cup or so?  Sometimes I can’t find ground buffalo and so I have to make it all beef – And I prefer using a good quality ground sirloin, organic if I can find it.  Often times I add a jalapeno or Serrano from my garden, minced, sometimes I give it a couple squirts of Worcestershire sauce, and I often have a different variety of BBQ sauce), but the boy insists that no matter how it turns out it is always his favorite.  Who doesn’t want to spoil rotten such a son-in-law as that?

If you can’t find the Salt Lick dry rub, basically all it is is about 1/2 tsp of cayenne powder, 1 tsp of ground black pepper, and 1/2 tsp of salt.  It might have a sprinkle of garlic powder in it too.

Try your best to completely wrap the loaf with the bacon, roll it over and get it all the way around, top to bottom and end to end.  And I like the thin, Applewood smoked bacon the best!!!  It gets crispy before the BBQ sauce goes on and that’s the way I like it.  And I always make my loaf into a log that’s about as big around as, well, if I put the tips of my pointer fingers together and my thumbs together and made a big wide circle shape, I could probably slide the loaf through, barely.  I use an oblong glass cake pan.  And I kind of press the loaf flat on top so the BBQ sauce will stay on.  I also LOVE LOVE LOVE ground black pepper, so I am pretty generous with it.  You could get fancy and sprinkle some fresh Thyme on top with the ground pepper before you toss the loaf in the oven.


If you like Sweet Potatoes, do those instead of the baked russets.  My son-in-law loves to load his mashed sweet ‘tater up with brown sugar (or maple syrup) and butter, crushed up pecans, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a few mini-marshmallows.  And I could honestly just eat the whole pot of cream corn all by myself.  I can’t get enough of that stuff.  Some other options are loaded green beans and loaded mashed potatoes.

Hello, and welcome to my little cul-de-sac on the web. It is a delight to make your acquaintance. Before you read another word, please go grab yourself a beverage and something yummy to nibble on, and then come back, flop down in your comfy chair, and take your time reading the rest. OH MY…what is that little yumminess you have there? I’d love your recipe! Where do I start? I’m a fifty-something (shhhhhhhhh), still-doesn’t-know-what-she-wants-to-be-when-she-grows-up wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, niece, cousin, aunt, stranger, and friend, with a fiendish hankerin’ for spoiling people. I was born and raised in the fly-over country of Wyoming’s Rocky Mountains, which might explain my natural ability to fritter away hours dreaming up stuff to do (‘cause there was nothing to do except what we dreamed up to do). I’ve decided on the senior side of life, that my favorite things are cooking up something new in the kitchen, crafting something homemade for my walls, excavating treasures from the living words of God, tinkering a little bit in my yard and garden, and nurturing relationships with the precious people God has graciously placed in my life. I pray if you have stumbled here by some devine happenstance, that you will find a treasure and that God will get the glory. Please, by all means ransack through all my recent posts and try any of it out that you like. I’m sure it will all look cuter on you anyways. Someday I hope to hear all about it! The Father's great peace and blessings to you friend!
