Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, green pepper and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender but not brown, stirring occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together eggs, salt, hot pepper sauce and black pepper. Stir in panko, cilantro, and onion mixture. Add ground meats. With a large fork, stir gently until well combined.

  • In the center of the prepared pan, shape meat mixture into a 9x5-inch loaf shape. Lay bacon slices in a single layer across the loaf, tucking ends under the loaf.

  • Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into eight slices. If you like, chill leftover meat loaf, thinly slice and serve in sandwiches with lettuce and ketchup. Makes 8 servings.
