Double Trouble Meatloaf

Whenever I think of meatloaf I think of the scene in Christmas Story (filmed in Cleveland. woohaa) where Ralphie who is dreading eating his mother's meatloaf says "meatloaf, smeatloaf, double boatload...I hate meatloaf!" Man does that movie just slay me. Although I have no idea what was in Ralphie's mom meatloaf this version is sure to make you and your children much happier.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.

Melt the butter in a medium saute pan and add the onions and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Sweat the onions, and then add the garlic and continue to cook. Stir in the chipotle powder and paprika and lightly toast with the onion mixture. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

Meanwhile, soak the bread in the milk until completely soft and hydrated. Squeeze out the excess milk and transfer to a large bowl along with the onion mixture, chuck, bacon, parsley, black pepper, eggs and remaining salt. Mix together.

Pack this mixture into a loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Let cool slightly (it will be easier to slice).

Slice the meatloaf and serve it with your favorite mashed potatoes or potato salad.

Notes

Cook's Note: This meatloaf also makes for a great late night snack, as well as a cold sandwich!

    this was fantastic, the flavor of the chipotle spice is very good. I used very lean beef and low salt bacon. Mix i can tomato soup with 1 1/2 cup of vegetable juice mix it pour oveer and bake it with the sauce amazing.

    Decent recipe but better is achieved as follows: Use one and a half pounds of ground beef, a half pound of ground pork, a half pound of ground bacon, leave out the cipotle and paprika, and add two tablespoons of worsteshire, one tablespoon of soy sauce, three tablespoons of ketchup, and two tablesoons of yeiiow mustard - now you wiil have a great meatloaf!

    Instead of bacon and ground chuck, I use a mixture of beef, pork & veal which makes for a moist meatloaf.
