Here is the weekly Bacon Recipe. I never cook any of this stuff so if you do let me know how it taste. I just assume since it has bacon in it, it must be amazing. Just looking at the picture makes my mouth water.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork sausage
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup finely crushed saltines (about 10)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 bacon strips, precooked for 1 minute (see Note)
Parsley sprigs for garnish
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 cup red chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients. Makes about 1/2 cup.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the glaze, bacon, and parsley and mix well. Turn the mixture into a lightly sprayed or oiled 9-by-5-inch loaf pan and gently pat down. Spread the glaze on top of the loaf and arrange the bacon strips neatly to cover. Bake until the loaf is firm and the bacon is crisp, about 1 Hour. Let stand in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Remove the loaf from the pan and transfer to a platter. Garnish with the parsley sprigs.
NOTE: To slightly precook the bacon, place the strips on a paper plate lined with a paper towel and place another paper towel on top. Microwave for about 1 minute to remove excess fat.
