Can I Make "Spinach-Dip Stuffed Meatloaf"?
Updated: Aug 29, 2020
This Twisted YouTube video appealed to me because it was 2 things I love (spinach dip & meatloaf) in 1 dish! I wouldn't have thought to put them together. :) It was also bacon-wrapped. This is also a low-carb meal all in 1 dish!
In the video, they actually used spinach & artichoke dip. I didn't have any artichokes around, so I made spinach dip as I have described before in this easy 4-ingredient 3-minute recipe I came up with -- but without the artichoke. :)
What I used:
- Spinach Dip I made
- Ground beef & ground pork
(I had both around; you could use 1 or the other if you prefer.)
- String cheese
I made a mini-version (vs. in the Twisted video) with about 8 oz. of ground meat, so it was sort of like a big bacon-wrapped burger. I didn't make a meatloaf mix (with egg and breadcrumbs); I just used the meat.
First, I made a little bacon package by laying a few pieces of bacon perpendicular to each other. I made 2 patties of ground meat. I put 1 down, then the "spinach dip mixture plus a little string cheese for some extra cheesiness & melti-ness!
Then, I put the other patty on top and wrapped up the stuffed meatloaf package with the ends of the bacon. I flipped it over, so the ends of strips of bacon were on the bottom, so the stuffed meatloaf package would stay together.
I baked it at 350 degrees for ~30 min. or so. I was doing other things; it probably would have been done before then. At 350 degrees, I wasn't worried about burning anything.
We are good at this! It was pretty easy to make and it's fun to make. It is also really good! How good does that look?
As I mentioned above, it's like having 1 dish (meatloaf & creamed spinach/spinach dip) all in 1 bite -- with some bacon.
I think if you don't eat bacon or if you don't like bacon, then you could leave it off and it would still be good.
This size as I mentioned above was like making a big burger, but I ate over it a couple meals because it's pretty filling.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
