Bacon Weave Instructions

smoked chicken meatloaf with bacon weave

If you want to jazz up a meatloaf, and turn an ordinary comfort food into something fancy looking, try adding a bacon weave. Do you want to impress guests, your family, or even just your pets? Try a bacon weave! It is a quick and easy way to do just that.

Adding a bacon weave is quick and easy, and once you get the hang of it, you may be adding one to anything you make that is somewhat “loaf” shaped.

The benefits of the weave are not just the added flavour. The bacon will crisp up, and will add a layer of crunchy texture to a meatloaf.

Turkey or chicken bacon work almost as well as regular bacon. I use turkey or chicken bacon myself. And the bacon crisps up nicely and really jazzes up a meatloaf.
