Ingredients

1 pound ground beef, 80/20
1 pound pork sausage
2 pounds bacon, divided (fry and crumble 1/2 pound, reserve the other 1-1/2 pound)
2 eggs, whisked
1/2 c. almond meal
1/4 c. unsweetened, unflavored almond milk
1 Tbsp. Head Country Championship Seasoning, Original
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/2 c. Head Country All-Purpose Marinade
Head Country Sugar Free Bar-B-Q Sauce
Chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, sausage, bacon, eggs, almond meal, almond milk, Head Country Championship Seasoning, garlic powder, onion, and Marinade. Be careful to not overwork the mixture.

Use the mixture to create individual-sized meatloaves, about four inches across and 6 inches long. Wrap each loaf with bacon.

From here, you have a few options:

Slow-cooker version: Add a thin layer of Head Country Sugar Free Bar-B-Q Sauce to the bottom of a slow cooker. Add loaves. Add the remaining Sugar Free sauce. Cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours. Top with a bit of chopped parsley and serve with your favorite sides for supper.

Instant Pot version: Add a thin layer of Head Country Sugar Free Bar-B-Q Sauce to the bottom of your Instant Pot. Add loaves. Add remaining Sugar Free sauce. Seal Instant Pot and, using the manual method, cook on high pressure for 35 minutes. Allow the pressure to self-release for 15 minutes, then release the rest of the pressure manually. Top with a bit of chopped parsley and serve with your favorite sides for supper.

Oven version: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add a thin layer of Head Country Sugar Free Bar-B-Q sauce to the bottom of a large baking pan or rimmed baking sheet. Add loaves in a single layer. Brush loaf with Sugar Free sauce. Add loaves to the oven and cook for 45-50 minutes. Top with a bit of chopped parsley and serve with your favorite sides for supper.

Grill version: Preheat grill to 350 degrees and set up for indirect heating. Add loaves in a single layer on the indirect heat side of the grill. Brush each loaf with Sugar Free sauce. Cook loaves for 45-50 minutes, turning and basting with sauce a few times during cooking. Top with a bit of chopped parsley and serve with your favorite sides for supper.
