- 1 pkg Old Home Premium Macaroni & Cheese
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 4 slices bacon cooked, chopped
- 1 tbsp pickled jalapenos diced
- 1 cup stuffing mix
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
- 1 tbsp honey mustard
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Empty the contents of the mac and cheese into a medium sauce pan, and heat over medium heat. Stir in cooked, chopped bacon and jalapeños. Remove from heat and let sit while meatloaf is put together.
In a medium bowl combine turkey, beef, stuffing mix, water, worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powders, and salt and pepper. Do not over mix or meat will become tough. Using 3/4 of the meat mixture, form it into the loaf pan, leaving a boat in the center where the mac and cheese will go.
Pour the mac and cheese (however much fits, you’ll have extra to enjoy as a side) into the hallowed out boat of the meatloaf. Top with the remaining 1/4 of the meat mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Combine the sauce ingredients and set aside. After 50 minutes, remove from the oven, and flip the meatloaf onto a sheet pan. Pour the BBQ mixture over the top, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until fully cooked through.
Slice, serve, and enjoy! Can be served with remaining jalapeno bacon mac and cheese and your favorite veggies!
*You can easily adjust the spice level by increasing or decreasing the jalapeno measurements. Another option would be to use green chilies that are completely mild.
The Old Home Mac and Cheese can be found in the refrigerated dairy section of your local grocery store.
