- 1 medium sized onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 6 bacon slices
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
- 1/2 cup fried onion pieces
Preheat oven or grill to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or silpat.
Melt butter in saute pan over medium heat. Cook onions about 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and add garlic, cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
In large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, and cooked onions and garlic. Use hands to mix well, but try not to over work the meat. Divide into six equal sized portions and shape into round patties. The patties should be small enough that the bacon will wrap around and overlap just enough to hold with a toothpick.
Wrap bacon slices around edge of patties. Use a toothpick to hold the bacon in place.
In a separate bowl, combine ketchup with mustard and brown sugar. Divide equally and spread over the tops of the mini meatloaves. Sprinkle tops with crispy fried onions.
Bake in preheated oven or grill until bacon is just golden, about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.
