So I was trying to decide all week what to make them so I went with meatloaf. But not just any meatloaf, meatloaf wrapped in bacon! and its The Pioneer Woman’s Meatloaf (have I mentioned that I love her!)

Pour in beaten eggs.

With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined.

Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!)

Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.

Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.

So along with meatloaf I made cupcakes for dessert and I made these cupcakes in Honor of St. Patrick’s Day. These cupcakes are amazing: Chocolate Guinness and whiskey cupcakes with baileys frosting! I have only made these cupcakes once before when I first started getting into cupcakes and I don’t recall them being so good!

Here’s the 1st time I made them: (Made March 27, 2010)

Chocolate Whiskey and Beer Cupcakes with Baileys Frosting

and then a year later…

  1. LOVE how you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
    I have a question about the meatloaf…when I made it…I used all of the milk that the bread was soaking in…and it urned out pretty mushy–did yours?

    • I did add the milk from the bread and it was fine. not mushy at all! I also used wheat bread, not sure if that has anything to do with it…But this was the best darn meatloaf I think I have made before!
