Fried Meatloaf and Bacon Wrapped Potatoes

Today you get a two for one recipe! The hubby called me with an idea to do a bacon wrapped potato. When I told him that I was out of potatoes, he quickly volunteered to go by the grocery store on his way home. If you knew how much he hates going to the grocery store, you'd know what a big deal that was to me! Well, I gave him a short list, but he was hungry so I got more than what was on my list! He picked up a few extra things... like peanuts for me to boil, Sweet Heat Potato Chips, Nutty Bars and Oatmeal Creme Pies! Never go to the grocery store hungry!!! LOL

BTW... He wanted me to do new potatoes, but he bought me baking potatoes. When I pointed that out, he asked what difference that makes. I said, "I don't know! It's your recipe!" LOL

I made MEATLOAF (click for the recipe) yesterday. I saw an idea on Mr Food's cooking break during the news, and I wanted to try it... Fried Meatloaf! After the meatloaf set up in the frig overnight (that's important), I sliced them and set up the breading station... a dish of seasoned flour, a dish of egg wash and a dish of seasoned bread crumbs. I dipped them in the flour, then the egg wash and finally the bread crumbs. I pan fried it in my cast iron skillet with a little oil until golden brown.

The Hubby's Bacon Wrapped Potatoes...

4-6 potatoes, cut into wedges
4-6 pieces of bacon
garlic powder
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the flour and seasonings in a large bowl. Add the potatoes and toss to coat the wedges. Wrap with the bacon and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the bacon is good and crispy and the potatoes are golden brown.


  1. Forgive my ignorance but I need some clarification on something....I gathered from your statement, that you had "made meatloaf yesterday", to mean that the meatloaf you use in you recipe is to be already cooked, as in 'leftovers', but I wasn't real clear on it. So I'd just like to confirm you are breading and frying already cooked meatloaf that has set in the frig overnight...correct? Thanks!

    1. Yes, I cooked it the night before and let it sit in the frig overnight. It has to sit overnight to firm up so you can handle it. If you use it right away, it will fall apart.
      I hope that helps! :-)
