Wrapping Meatloaf in Bacon

By Fine Cooking Editors, editor

December 30th, 2010

Our food stylist, Samantha Seneviratne, has a great eye for food presentation. When she prepared the meatloaves for the Meatloaf Recipe Maker and Fine Cooking 109's cover, she decided to bacon-wrap the loaves using a cool diagonal pattern rather than simply laying the bacon strips straight across. Here’s how she did it:

Layer and Trim
Layer overlapping strips of bacon on the meatloaf on the diagonal, covering the meat as much as possible. Trim the ends of the bacon, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang.

Tuck and Patch
Gently tuck the bacon overhang under the meatloaf. Use additional bacon strips, trimmed as necessary, to patch any uncovered areas.
