Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 1 1/2 hours
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 C Vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 Large egg
3/4 C Applesauce
1 C Plain bread crumbs
1 C Paula Deen Smokey Apple Cinnamon Sauce, divided
1 t Salt
1/4 t Black pepper
3 slices of uncooked bacon
Paula Deen Smokey Apple Cinnamon Sauce to drizzle on top for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, onion, egg, applesauce, bread crumbs, 3 T of Paula Deen Smokey Apple Cinnamon Sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Form the meat loaf mixture into a loaf shape and press into the prepared pan. Brush the top of the meat loaf with half of the remaining Smokey Apple Cinnamon Sauce and top with 3 slices of bacon. Back for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
In the last 10 minutes of baking, brush the remaining Smokey Apple Cinnamon Sauce over the top of the bacon and return to the oven.
Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes. Slice and serve alongside your favorite mashed new red potatoes with the skins left on and a little Smokey Apple Cinnamon Sauce drizzled on top!
