Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt pepper and smoked paprika, to taste
  • 9 ounces thin-cut bacon
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese chopped
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat a convection oven to 320° Fahrenheit (conventional ovens to 350°F).
  • Mix ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs and spices in a large bowl.
  • Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan first with parchment paper and then with 2/3 of the bacon, leaving an overhang.
  • Shape a long log with 2/3 of the meat mixture and fit it inside the loaf pan. Make a groove in the middle and add the mozzarella cheese to it. Cover with the remaining meat mixture. Fold the bacon overhang on top and cover entirely with the remaining 1/3 of bacon. Spread with 1/3 of the barbecue sauce.
  • Bake in the middle of the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Spread with another 1/3 of the barbecue sauce. Continue baking for another 20 minutes, spread with the remaining sauce and serve hot.
