Ingredients 

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup gluten free breadcrumbs
  • Salt, pepper and smoked paprika, to taste
  • 9 ounces bacon slices
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, chopped
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
 Instructions
  1. Preheat a convection oven to 320° Fahrenheit (conventional ovens to 350°F).
  2. Mix ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs and spices in a large bowl.
  3. Line a 9×5 inch loaf pan first with parchment paper and then with ⅔ of the bacon, leaving an overhang.
  4. Shape a long log with ⅔ of the meat mixture and fit it inside the loaf pan. Make a groove in the middle and add the mozzarella cheese to it. Cover with the remaining meat mixture. Fold the bacon overhang on top and cover entirely with the remaining ⅓ of bacon. Spread with ⅓ of the barbecue sauce.
  5. Bake in the middle of the preheated for 40 minutes. Spread with another ⅓ of the barbecue sauce. Continue baking for another 20 minutes, spread with the remaining sauce and serve hot.
