In the local grocery’s meat department they sell bacon patties. I’ve never noticed them before, but now that I have, and remembering the Dope’s love of all things bacon, I wondered if anyone had any experience using them.
What I would like to make is a meatloaf. I don’t know precisely how big the bacon patties are, though eyeballing them they look about a 4 oz. That seems like a lot of bacon to add to a meatloaf, but I am a bacon patty novice.
Usually for a meatloaf I use around 3/4 pounds of beef and 3/4 pounds of pork. If I added 1/4 pounds of bacon, will it just be a bacon-flavored loaf?
Full disclosure: I actually am not the biggest fan of bacon, but my husband loves both bacon and meatloaf and combining the two seems like a winner.
