How to make your meatloaf sexy!
Personally, I love meatloaf. I have yet to meet a recipe that I didn't like. But sexy? I think not--at least, not until tonight. My bride, in her search of the low carb extremes, came across this concept. It WORKS! Find yourself a decent size onion. Cut the ends off. Cut it in half. Carefully peel away the layers, keeping the half layers together. Since you are looking for individual serving sizes, you may not want the large outer layers or the inner layers. Chop them and use them in your meatloaf! Prepare your meatloaf as normal. Make a ball the size of a ball that would fit in the completed onion layer and place it on the "bottom" half. Place the "top half" over it. Carefully wrap the onion ball with three strips of bacon, using toothpicks to secure the bacon. Place on a lipped cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. When totally assembled, place in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for 40-45 minutes until bacon is crisp and the meatloaf is firm. Remove and serve with sides of your choice (ours were sliced avacado and fresh tomato wedges.). I'm tellin' ya, it's down right saxy!
