  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning

  1. On medium heat in a small saucepan mix ketchup, Sriracha, brown sugar, and vinegar for glaze. Heat, gently stirring, until brown sugar has dissolved. Turn burner off.
  2. In a frying pan, sauté onion until lightly brown, add garlic, after about 1 minute, move contents to a bowl to cool slightly.
  3. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray, and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs, seasonings, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce,  and yogurt; add in crackers, beef, and pork. Mix until well combined.
  5. Form mixture into a log shape on the prepared sheet pan. Take about 1/8 C. of the glaze and place in separate bowl; using a brush spread this glaze on the loaf. Wrap the loaf in bacon, tucking the bacon ends under the loaf.
  6. Bake in the oven for one hour. Let cool for 15-20 minutes. Serve with glaze on the side.
