The flavor of Salisbury steak takes me back to my childhood. To be honest, it is a TV dinner memory. I made up this meatloaf to relive the wonderful onion flavor that Salisbury steak imparts. It is quite simple and delicious.

Salisbury Steak is typically made with a patty of ground beef that's smothered in gravy. This recipe takes all the flavors of Salisbury Steaks and turns them in a meatloaf that's wrapped in bacon. Yum! Bread crumbs help to keep the flavorful meatloaf moist. An easy to make dinner that'll transport you back to the days of TV dinners. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

    salt
  • 1/2 tsp

    dry whole leaf thyme (crushed)
  • 4 tsp
    dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1 tsp
    garlic powder

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Salisbury Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Measure 4 Tbsp of the onion soup and 2 Tbsp of the tomato sauce in a large bowl. Add the bread crumbs, eggs, milk, Worcestershire, onion flakes, and the remaining seasonings. Stir to mix well. Let sit 10 minutes to allow the bread crumbs to soak up the liquids.
  2. Gently mix in the 2 pounds ground beef chuck. Do this by working with your hands. Do not over mix or the meatloaf will be tough.
  3. On a baking sheet (jelly roll pan), that is lined with non-stick foil, form the meat mix in to a loaf about 3x3x10. Wrap the loaf, lengthwise with the bacon slices.
  4. Bake the meatloaf in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes. The last 10 minutes turn the oven up to 425 degrees to get the bacon a little crispier.
  5. Let the meatloaf rest, uncovered on the counter for 30 minutes before slicing. While it is resting, make the gravy.
  6. To make the gravy, place the remaining can of French Onion Soup, the other 2 Tbsp of tomato sauce, the water, and the corn starch in a small saucepan. Heat until it comes to a boil, stirring constantly.
  7. Serve the meatloaf with a little of the sauce on top.
