Dine In: Meatloaf Bombs

Meatloaf BombsThis post is an homage to an account I follow on Instagram. The owner of the account, whose real name I don’t know of course, is a grill aficionado, with new, delicious-looking temptations on his account almost daily. The man must live on his back porch (which sounds like heaven-on-earth to me).

He posted a picture recently that made me stop and do a double-take. It looked amazing. It made me actually consider commenting and asking him what his secret was. After I thought about it, I knew I had to do more than consider the question. I commented and he answered! He didn’t give away all his secrets, so I had to guess at the recipe when I recreated it on a recent Friday night, but he did tell me enough to cook it perfectly. We’ll be making this again and again.

Meatloaf Bombs

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup panko or seasoned breadcrumbs
1 egg
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs parsley, dried
1 tsp garlic salt
2 Tbs ketchup or tomato paste
2 large white onions
8 slices bacon

Mix ground beef with breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, ketchup and garlic salt. Form into 4 balls.

Peel white onion and remove ends. Using the tip of a sharp knife, slice through the outer ring of onion and remove. Remove the 2 outer layers of onion (the 2 largest ones) from each onion. Wrap onion around each ball of meat, forming kind of a shell. Wrap 2 slices bacon around meat balls, crisscrossing over the top and securing with a toothpick to hold the mixture together.

Preheat grill to 400° F.

Place meatloaf bombs on the grill over indirect heat. Cook until internal temperature reaches 160° F for medium, 170° F for well-done. Serve immediately.
