This recipe comes to us from the Hugs & Cookies XOXO website that Danielle maintains, but we should run and give her a hug for developing this spectacular Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf recipe and sharing it with us. You may have seen or even tasted this kind of recipe before, but you need to see the photograph that Danielle has placed on the site and try to make this loaf as she describes it. This meatloaf is pretty enough to not only feed to family and friends but even very special guests. They will undoubtedly be impressed by your culinary skills and ooh and ah the stellar presentation.

It is always important to make sure that foods are visually appealing, especially if you are dealing with fussy eaters. That is why foods that are brightly colored, prettily arranged, include something decadent right on top can often work to get people digging in with enthusiasm who might otherwise turn up their little noses at your hard work. This recipe will help you encourage just the right kind of rewarding behavior that every hardworking parent desires and deserves from their little munchkins.

There are a couple of really great tips that Danielle offers for this recipe. One is to consider using a meatloaf mix for the recipe that you can pick up at your grocers. This is a great option because the grocer often blends different kinds of meats such as veal, ground beef or sirloin, and pork to create a subtle blend of flavors. In some cases, they may even add seasonings, but you can also buy unseasoned blends if you prefer. This recipe includes a classic blend of seasonings that everyone in the family will love. And, the recipe gets a fiber bump with the addition of oats. If you think your family wont enjoy the oats, just put them in your food processor and grind them up until they are like breadcrumbs then add them in. No one will ever know. And the nutritional benefits are worth it. Eggs give another protein punch to the mix.

This is a great Friday afternoon before the game go-to meal. Serve it with a side of mac and cheese, with potatoes or yams, and some green beans. Yum. Yum. Yum.
