Preparation
Step 1
Mix seasoning blend and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2
In a skillet over medium heat, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add celery, carrot, bell pepper, and white onion, saute for about 5 minutes, season with 1 tablespoon of seasoning blend, add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Step 3
Tear sliced bread and add to a medium bowl, add 1 teaspoonful of seasoning blend and cover with chicken broth and set aside.
Step 4
In a separate bowl, add ground turkey, sausage (casing removed), remaining seasoning blend, minus 1 tablespoon. Add beaten egg, cheese, cooled vegetables, green onions and bread/broth mixture. Mix well and set aside.
Step 5
Place foil on a baking sheet, spray with nonstick cooking spray. Lay bacon slices down, slightly overlapping bacon. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoonful of seasoning blend on top of bacon. Add meat mixture in the center of bacon and form a log.
Step 6
Wrap bacon up sides of meatloaf. Cover with another piece of foil and flip meatloaf over. Remove top foil and you should have a fully covered bacon meatloaf. Sprinkle remaining seasonings on top of bacon. Baste with barbeque sauce. Wrap meatloaf back up in foil.
Step 7
Bake meatloaf for 45 minutes, remove foil from meatloaf and bake 20 minutes more. Broil for about 3 minutes on each side of meatloaf to crisp bacon. Remove from oven and allow meatloaf to rest for about 10 minutes before cutting.
Step 8
To prepare sandwiches, use left over chilled meatloaf. Cut into slices. Place about 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook meatloaf about 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Step 9
Slice King's Hawiian rolls in half, place a piece of crisp lettuce on bottom, cover in ketchup, add meatloaf, cheese, and extra bacon if you have any leftover and serve.
