Dutch Oven Meatloaf


2 lbs ground beef
1 lb mild ground sausage
2 eggs
1 yellow onion diced
2 celery ribs, chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)
8 peppered thick cut bacon strips


Set bacon strips aside. In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients and mix well with hands until completely combined.

Add combination to a 10″ Dutch oven and place bacon strips on top of the meatloaf. This will make the meatloaf moist.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until done. You may have to add coals at the end to ensure the bacon is cooked through.

  1. Made this tonight at the lake cabin. It was delicious! Used hot sausage, and forgot to add the bread crumbs. Was a tiny big crumbly, but not extremely so.
