I really like (sometimes) the preparation of nutritional bio-matter

Bacon covered meat loaf.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Usually,I am opposed to preheating, but….

what you’ll need

2# natural lean ground beef
1# mild Italian sausage
1 packet onion soup mix
2 eggs already beaten
Bacon (enough to run the length of the loaf)
A pinch of garlic (varies upon taste)

what to do

1. Mix the above (not the bacon, I mean come on) in a large bowl.
2. Shape meat into loaf and put into pan.
3. Cover loaf with strips of bacon
4. Place into oven.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 1.5 hours ( the original recipe said an hour, but I like my meat done) or until meat is done.
6. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes.

The veggie dish. One of those steamable bags a whole green bean and potato mixture in a light cream sauce.

I used this really neat meatloaf pan I saw at Walmart. It really worked!

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Fries

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients

2 sweet potatoes, cut into thick matchsticks*

1 package bacon, don’t use thick cut

Method
Get your oven to 425°F.

Rinse the sweet potatoes and pat dry.
Slice each piece of bacon in half, lengthwise.

Wrap 1 strip of bacon around 1 matchstick sweet potato.

Lay on a baking sheet.

Repeat until all the bacon is gone.

If you have left over sweet potatoes, toss ‘em on the pan too, they’ll cook beautifully in all the rendered bacon fat.

Bake the fries for about 25 minutes on one side.

You’re looking for browned bacon. Use some tongs to flip the fries over and bake for another 10-12 minutes, until browned.

Tasty yummy!
