Recipes made with Smithfield bacon include bacon-wrapped meatloaf and a grilled chicken, avocado and bacon sandwich. The sandwich recipe uses 8 slices of bacon, while the meatloaf recipe uses 1 16-ounce package.
The sandwich recipe calls for 8 slices of bacon, 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 1 sliced tomato, 1 sliced avocado and leaf lettuce. Marinate the chicken in the zest and juice from 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon ground coriander, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Let the chicken marinate from 10 minutes to one hour in the refrigerator. Mix 1 tablespoon of mustard with 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, and cook the bacon to taste. Grill the chicken over medium-high heat for 10 to 12 minutes, and toast the rolls or bread slices. Spread the mustard mayonnaise mixture on both sandwich halves and top with lettuce, chicken, bacon, avocado and tomato.
The bacon-wrapped meatloaf recipe uses 1 pound of bacon, 1 pound of ground pork, 2 eggs, 1/2 green bell pepper, 1/2 cup crushed crackers, 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 onion, 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and 1 1/2 teaspoon salt. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, finely dice the pepper and onion, and weave the bacon into a mat. Mix the other ingredients, and form into a loaf. Roll the bacon mat around the meatloaf, and cook for 1 1/2 hours, or until the meat is cooked and the bacon is crispy. Roll the loaf over, and broil for five minutes.
