Delicious bacon topped meatloaf grilled in a Bourbon BBQ Sauce and topped off with onion straws makes this Bourbon BBQ Bacon Meatloaf Sandwich a hearty meal!
Bourbon BBQ Bacon Meatloaf Sandwich, wow say that three times fast. I know the name is long, but I couldn’t leave anything out when describing this delicious piece of meat on a bun! For real, this is a dinner for champions. Or a bunch of willing participants and hungry, hearty mouths to feed. That was the case the other night for my brood.
Talk about a meal that was literally scarfed down in minutes. I swear my husband could have inhaled this thing in 2 bites if he tried. Moist meatloaf, a tangy bourbon bbq sauce, cheese and onion straws make this sandwich something else I tell you. Not to mention I love onion straws. I could eat those things by the handful all day long. If you are looking for that meal that will satisfy your man…or woman, this is wear to go my friends.
What makes this sandwich so amazing is grilling the slices of meatloaf in the sauce, an essential party I believe. Gives it a thick caramel coating that bakes right onto the meatloaf and searing in the flavor. Add some melted cheese and you are set! No need for a side dish with this bad boy, at least one was not necessary for me. Filling is the only word that comes to mind!
