Growing up I was never a huge fan of meatloaf. Somehow over the years I have grown to love it. I think because as I got older I realized how many different variations there are of this classic food. It's not just about your basic hunk of meat slathered in ketchup. (The reason I think meatloaf has gotten a bad rap over the years) I like unique meatloaf recipes and this mini meatloaf was calling my name. Bacon and BBQ sauce? Yes, Please! We all loved it!

1lb extra-lean (93/7) ground beef
1lb extra lean (93/7) ground turkey
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)

6 tbsp bbq sauce, divided
2 tbsp bbq seasoning (I like McCormicks)

1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
8 strips bacon, cut into half (I used center cut)
Press mixture into a lightly greased mini loaf pan. Add remaining 3 tbsp bbq sauce to the top of each loaf.
Place in fridge for 10 minutes to set and remove loaves from pan. Top each loaf with 2 half-slices bacon.
Place on grill and cook 13-15 minutes or until loaves are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in the center and bacon is browned. Enjoy!
