Introduction: Filled Meat Loaf With Bacon Jacket
This meat loaf is a good choice if you are really hungry: plenty to eat and very filling!
Also this is quite easy to make and nice looking if you have guests for dinner.
But let's see how it is done....
Step 1: Ingredients
First of all collect the following ingredients (this is what I used for mine but if you want bigger or smaller meat loaf use your own quantity):
- 700g Minced meat
- 2 Packages of bacon
- 4 eggs (1 raw, 3 boiled)
- Parmigiano Cheese
Step 2: Preparing the Minced Meat
Put the minced meat in a bowl and add salt, pepper, parmigiano and 1 egg. Mix well.
Step 3: Filling Up
Once the meat is spiced put it on a oven paper and spread it evenly and try to give a square shape. Put on top of it some slices of ham and the boiled eggs. Make sure that there is some empty space on the edges.
Close the meat loaf by folding one side over the eggs and the second side on top of it. Close all the holes and make it tight.
Step 4: The Wrapping
For the wrapping start with putting the slices of bacon close to each other vertically. Step by step lift up the slices of every second bacon strip and insert horizontal slices. Following horizontal slices will be put by lifting up the opposite vertical slices. Weave them tight until you have something like in the 3rd picture.
Roll the meat loaf in the bacon starting from top with the aid of the oven paper.
Step 5: Cooking and Serving
Finally you can cook your meat loaf! Put it in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 45 minutes or until the bacon is crispy enough for you. Meat loaf must cook slowly.
Slice it when it has cool down a little because it is just easier to cut.
You can serve it with some fried vegetables but it goes well also with potatoes or with the Devil's Jam that I made previously in my Instructable.
