BBQ Bacon Stuffed Meatloaf


















It is no secret, I love Pampered Chef, and My favorite products ever is the Deep Covered Baker. I love it, and I know I've told you all 100000 times. But yes I must spread the love :)

This Recipe is from the new Deep Covered CookBook from Pampered Chef.

I made this Meatloaf in my Deep Covered Baker in the Microwave in about 20-25 minutes :) It was delish and no.... you don't have to have that much cheese on it :)


But as you may or may not know, you do not need a Deep Covered Baker to make this. :) I'm sure any casserole dish would work just as well
