Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf Muffins Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl, minus the bacon. Mix well.
  3. Take the slices of bacon and create an “x” or “t”.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, place a scoop of the meatloaf mixture into each muffin tin.
  5. Tighten up the bacon slices by folding in the smaller side first (if you have one) and the larger side last.
  6. Flip the meatloaf muffin over so that you see the “smooth side” of the bacon. This will also hold the bacon in place during the cooking process in the oven.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes.
  8. Broil on low for 5 minutes or until bacon is crispy on the outside.
  9. Enjoy!

    These were really good! Cleanup was not fun. I think I will try cooking them on parchment in a baking sheet next time.

    1. They make parchment cupcake liners. I use them for everything when baking and using muffin pans. They are available on Amazon, then there is no cleanup mess.

  2. I made these tonight. They were great. Very easy to make and cook. Boy the house sure smelled tasty!!!!!! LOL

  3. 5 Stars! My husband raved about this recipe and asked if we could tape it the back of one of the cabinet doors. LOL I followed the recipe exactly only I made 3 mini loaves and laid the bacon on top. Just take extra care of the cooking vessel, I put mine on a wire rack over a sheet pan it gets messy, but yes the house smelled fantastic.

  4. 5 stars
    I made these last night. I missed the part about broiling them on a rack and broiled them in the muffin pan so the bottoms were not crispy. They were still really good.

  5. 5 stars
    Made these tonight for dinner and my entire household was impressed and completely satisfied! Used ground turkey instead of beef, one family member has a beef allergy. Meatballs were moist and delicious. Paired well with sautéd greens beans.
