Step 1: Things You Will Need

Picture of Things You Will Need
1 muffin tray
2 packages of thick sliced bacon ( I used Turkey Bacon)

2 pounds Ground beef or turkey meat
1/2 cup Barbeque sauce or ketchup.(You will need more later, this is just for putting in the meatloaf)
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 egg
1 TBSP crushed garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tsp basil
1 cup oats
1 TBSP Parmesan

2 cups elbow macaroni
2oz cream cheese  (1/4 a box)
3/4 cups sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 1/4  cups shredded cheese (I Used 1 cup Colby Jack, 1/4 cup White Cheddar)

Note: This recipe should make 8 bacon balls.

Step 2: Preping Your Meat

Picture of Preping Your Meat
1. Place ground meat into large bowl or pan.
2. Press meat into a large bowl shape.
3. Place all Meatloaf ingredients into meat bowl.
4. Use you hands to mash everything together until thoroughly mixed.
5. Cover and set aside until needed.

Step 3: Making The Mac & Cheese

Picture of Making The Mac & Cheese
1. In large pan, boil enough water to cook your noodles. When water is boiling,  add noodles, then
     reduce heat. cook the noodles until they are soft, then drain the water.

2. Place the milk and cheeses in another medium size pan, and simmer on low to medium heat.
     Stir often until the cheeses are melted and mixed into a soupy substance. If you want to add any
     personal seasonings to you mac & cheese, this would be the best time to do it.

3. In a large pan, mix  cheese sauce with the noodles until well blended.

Great recipe... but why isn't this entered in the Bacon Contest?

I published it right before the contest entry date. Oh well, I still have a few good recipes in the mix that i think could be potential winners. But in the end, everyone's a winner when you have a page full of new and tasty treats to eat!

So...there is another layer to the paradigm of the Epically Evil Food Pyramid?

"Ding", your New World Order is ready!!
These were absolutely Meat-tastic!! I wouldn't change one thing... definitely a hang over cure for the booze hounds out there. A lot of prepping but it is so worth the smiles & satisfaction.

It's a good meal, But it took way too long to prepare everything and when i tried baking it in my oven at 400 degrees my oven started to smoke ~which at that point I decided to put a baking sheet on the bottom of the muffin pan for the excess grease to drip onto. I will say it tasted pretty good ~Just a lot of work for someone in a hurry
Wow, that is crazy! I'd try that :)

It's a proliferation of food stuffing and wrapping . I fear that someday, my creations may someday lead to another cold food war!!

These look good. Have you made them with pork bacon?
