How do you make meatloaf taste better? Wrap it in bacon, of course! This Cast Iron Glazed Bacon Meatloaf takes traditional meatloaf to a whole other level. Cooking it in a cast iron brings out the flavor of bacon with a brown sugar glaze that goes perfect with a wedge salad.

For this recipe, I used a Lodge 10.5″ seasoned cast iron skillet. They are fairly inexpensive at under $20 and are great to cook in. The pan already comes seasoned making your meal taste even better than cooking in a normal skillet. To clean: wash it by hand with mild soap or none at all. Dry promptly and thoroughly using a paper towel. When you are done drying it rub a light layer of vegetable oil through the inside of the pan when it’s still warm and hang to dry.
