Spicy Garlic Loaf (Meat Loaf) Sliders

Spicy Garlic LoafINGREDIENTS:

1 lb. 90% ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground lamb
One medium onion, diced
1/2 of a green pepper, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon Kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon of ground ancho pepper
1 Cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 large eggs
1 – 6oz. can of tomato paste

Sautee the onion, red chili, garlic, and the green bell pepper in olive oil until slightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, combine above with remaining ingredients and mix well. Then, in a loaf pan, lay 6 strips of bacon on the bottom. Then, add the meat loaf mixture. Top off with the remaining 6 strips of bacon. Cover with aluminum foil and cook at 350 degrees for one hour or until your instant-read thermometer reads 130 degrees in the center.
Remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to brown the top.
