Recipe by skinnychef

So my mom had a great idea, make meatloaf like I make my favorite meatballs. Genius...so I pretty much followed the turkey meatball recipe that I make. Two ways was an experiment to see which I like better. One has a layer of marinara sauce on top and the other has bacon layered on top. I did use center cut bacon which is a little lower in fat. The second way is in tribute to my polish grandmother who really made the best meatloaf ever and she wrapped it lovingly in bacon. I do not like burnt outside of meatloaf and the bacon adds flavor and moistness. Not sure which one I like better...maybe the bacon one.
