This Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf with Smoky BBQ Sauce recipe has converted meatloaf-hating family members for many years now, it was one of the first recipes I created for Skinnymixers and I knew it deserved a place in The Healthy Mix V.
Topped with rich smoky BBQ sauce, this is so much more than your average meatloaf.
Add parsley and garlic to mixer bowl, blitz for 3 sec/speed 9/MC on.
Add carrot and onion, chop for 3 sec/speed 6/MC on.
Add remaining meatloaf ingredients, except for bacon and oil, and pulse turbo 1 sec/5 times to roughly combine.
Remove meatloaf mixture to a silicone mat or large piece of aluminium foil and shape into a rounded meatloaf shape.
Wrap bacon rashers around meatloaf and secure in place with toothpicks.
Transfer meatloaf to large bottom steaming tray. It's okay if it bends up the sides.
Add 600 g or 21.2 oz water to mixer bowl and steam meatloaf for 45 min/steaming temp/speed 2/MC off. In the last 20 mins of steaming time, feel free to add vegetables around meatloaf to cook and serve.
With 5 mins remaining, heat preferred oil in a large frying pan to medium heat.
Transfer meatloaf to frying pan and brown on all sides.
While the meatloaf is browning, prepare smokey BBQ sauce with a clean bowl:
Add all sauce ingredients to mixer bowl, cook 5 min/steaming temperature/speed 2/MC off.
Remove toothpicks and serve meatloaf with steamed vegetables or salad and smokey BBQ sauce drizzled over the top.
I used smoked streaky bacon.You can prepare the sauce standalone to use with other dishes.I used Thermobextas *amazing* tomato sauce recipe for my sauce, in which I substitute the raw honey with coconut sugar 🙂This is loosely inspired by the Womans Weekly BBQ Meatloaf.Sauce OnlyServing Size: 30g / Serves 10Kj: 172Cal: 41Protein: 0.6gFat: 2.6gSat Fat: 1.6gCarb: 3.8gSugar: 3.5gSodium: 181mg
