DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl mix ground beef, eggs, diced onions, ketchup, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mixing with your hands is best. Mix it real well.
  • Crush the crackers. I always crush the crackers while still in their sleeve.
  • Pour crushed crackers into beef. Mix the crackers into the beef mixture well.
  • Form into a loaf shape and set to the side.
  • Take the bacon and divide it into even amount.
  • Take 1 half of the bacon and lay side by side long ways.
  • Fold every other bacon strip in half.
  • Lay 1 of the other half of the reserved bacon strips across.
  • Unfold the half folded bacon strip.
  • Fold the other every other bacon strips that were not folded in the previous step.
  • Lay a slice of bacon across and then unfold.
  • Repeat until you run out of room.
  • Start on the other half of the bacon strip until you have made a weave.
  • Pace the loaf shaped beef mixture into the center on your bacon weave.
  • Wap the weave around the beef loaf shaped mixture.
  • Flip the bacon wrapped meat loaf upside down,making the ends of the bacon tuck under the loaf.
  • Place the loaf in the center of the oven on a cookie sheet.
  • It takes about an hour to cook.
  • To make sure it is cooked all the way through, I sometimes use a meat thermometer but that isn't really needed. Sometimes I leave it in for 15 more minutes if I am worried it isn't cooked all the way.
