  • 6 strips bacon (to wrap the meatloaf)
  • 3 tablespoons onion (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs

Potato Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt/pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano


  • Preheat the oven at 375 degrees.
  • First, add 4 strips of bacon to a blender and pulse until it is a bacon paste.
  • Next, add beef, eggs, bread crumbs, grated onion, bacon paste, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper to a bowl and mix.
  • Note: mix with less dominate hand so do not over mix the meat because it will make the meatloaf tough.
  • Now, mix the potatoes in the sheet pan with oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Then move the potatoes to the sides of sheet pan so there is room for the meatloaf.
  • Next, place meat in center of the sheet pan and shape in meatloaf form.
  • Now, drape the extra bacon slices over the meatloaf.
  • Next, place in the oven on the middle rack for 1 hour.
  • Finally, brush some ketchup ontop of the bacon and enjoy!
