1 tsp
vegetable oil
1 cup(s)
finely chopped onion
3
garlic cloves, minced
2
large eggs
1 tsp
Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp
crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 tsp

1/2 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup(s)
milk

Directions 11 steps | 90 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil, shiny side down. Line a metal cooling rack with aluminum foil, poking holes with a chopstick where the meatloaf will be. The holes will help drain the fat from the meatloaf.

Step 2

In a small frying pan over medium-low heat, cook the onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Step 3

Make the glaze. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, smoked paprika and mustard. Cook until the glaze is slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 4

In a large mixing bowl, add the reserved onion and garlic, eggs, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, milk, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pork, beef, parsley and breadcrumbs.

Step 5

Using your hands, lightly mix the ingredients together until well combined.

Step 6

Form a 9x5-inch meatloaf on top of the prepared wire rack.

Step 7

Using a silicone brush, brush the meatloaf with the meatloaf glaze.

Step 8

Layer the bacon slices, crosswise, tucking the ends under the loaf. Bake the meatloaf for 30 minutes.

Step 9

Remove from the oven and brush on more glaze. Bake for another 30 minutes or until the center of the meatloaf reads 160°F on an instant-read thermometer.

Step 10

Let cool for 15-20 minutes before slicing.

Step 11

Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with a side of steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
