Meatloaf Meatballs

Meatloaf is on the top of many comfort food lists. I think that’s because almost everyone ate it as a kid. It reminds us of home and our childhood. A time when there were no bills to pay, no 40 hour work weeks, and no kids to drive us insane to take care of.

I’ve made Nigella’s Mini Meatloaves before but this time I put my own spin on it. Can you guess what I added? That’s right. Bacon. Smoky, slightly salty, almost sinful, bacon. Did you know that today is International Bacon Day? Yeah, I had no idea either. I think you should celebrate by making this. Or by watching Footloose.
