Instructions

Meatloaf

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Tear the bread into chunks and soak in the milk. Separate 2 tbsp of paste for the glaze and mix the rest of the can with the pork. Add onion, poblano, garlic, thyme, oregano, chili, paprika, salt, pepper, egg, and bread to the mix.
  • On a wire rack. Lay out the strips of bacon, slightly overlapping. Put the pork mixture in the middle of the bacon and form it into a loaf. Wrap the bacon around the loaf. Brush with the glaze and flip over. Brush the top with glaze and place the rack on a sheet pan. Bake in the oven for 1 hour 30 minutes. Rotate the loaf and brush with more glaze every 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.
