  • 5 Slices Low Sodium Bacon (Cooked & crumbled)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (Diced)
  • 3 Green Onions (diced)
  • 4 Cloves, Garlic (minced (I love garlic, you can use less))
  • 454g Ground Turkey or Chicken (454 grams is roughly 1lb.)
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Carbquik or Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato Paste (Can or tube)
  • 1 Egg (Beaten)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup Old, Sharpe Cheddar, Shredded (I used a 5 year old.)
  • Oil or butter for saute.


Step 1
Cook your delicious bacon strips until they are nice and crispy (but not burnt), when done, remove and set on paper towel to cool and drain. Set aside
Step 2
Saute onions until white onions are starting to go transparent (or golden). Add garlic and continue saute for another minute. Remove from pan into a bowl to cool.
Step 3
Time to have some fun. In 1 small bowl, beat an egg - Set aside.
In another smallish bowl, add breadcrumbs.
Add milk to breadcrumbs, stir until mixed (or well incorporated).
Add egg to breadcrumb/milk mess.
Step 4
In a large bowl, add breadcrumb mess to ground turkey or chicken. Add the sautéed onions/garlic (now cooled), cheese, salt and delicious bacony goodness.

Get your hands in there and mix it all up.
Step 5
You could use a normal meatloaf pan should you wish. Or you can find mini loaf pans at various kitchen supply-type stores. I actually used a "Brownie" pan.

Divide your mess into 8 equal portions filling each of the pans. If your has empty slots, fill them 1/4 way with water to help keep your 350° oven humid (help with removal as well).

Cook for 35-40 minutes, depending on your oven.

When done. Remove from heat and let set aside to cool.

After roughly 10-15 minutes, you should be able to slide the loaves out of their beds.

Serve with beans, peas, or whatever floats your boat.

These can be frozen for up to 6 months for quick lunch or dinners.
