11 sliced uncured bacon, 2 sliced cooked and diced
For the BBQ Sauce:
1 (6oz) can tomato paste
1 onion, minced
½ cup apple cider vinegar
⅓ cup water or broth
2 tablespoons apple butter (optional)
1 tablespoon ground mustard (no sugar added)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon allspice
pinch or two of ground cloves
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
splash of hot sauce, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Dice up your 2 pieces of bacon and throw in a frying pan to cook up for about 5-7 minutes.
While the bacon is cooking, mix together all other ingredients (except for your 9 slices of bacon) in a large bowl. Once your 2 pieces of bacon are done cooking, add them to the bowl and fully incorporate into the mix.
Now grab 2 bread loaf pans and add an equal amount to both. Top the meat off with bacon.
Cook for 45 minutes.
While the meatloaf is cooking, make your BBQ sauce!
In a large frying pan, add some olive oil (or other fat) and brown the onion--about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and stir together to cook a bit more.
Add all other ingredients and mix together, then let simmer for 10-15 minutes (or longer if you have time-I usually want to eat as quick as possible).
Now plop that sauce on top of your meatloaf and store the rest in a cute Tupperware container in the fridge.
