  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Ground Mustard powder
  • ½ c Seasoned Bread Crumbs

  • You will want to first cook off your bacon, I found the best way with less mess is to line your bacon on a tray and bake it off in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-25 mins.
  • When the bacon has cooled off, dice it up and put aside 2 Tbsp. for later use. The remaining bacon can go in a large bowl.
  • Then you can add all your remaining ingredients except your cheese.
  • Mix your meat mixture well to make sure to incorporate all the ingredients.
  • Place either a piece of parchment or plastic wrap on your counter, and spread out the loaf mixture to form a large rectangle. You want to spread it out until it’s about an inch thick.
  • Then spread the shredded cheese around leaving a good inch border around the edges.
  • Use your parchment/plastic wrap to asset you in rolling the mix into a loaf. Cover and place in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Make your glaze by mixing the 3 ingredients together in a small bowl, place it to the side.
  • Cook on pellet smoker for 1 hour at 225 degrees.
  • Then brush half the glaze on the loaf, and bump the temperature up to 275 degrees. Continue to cook till an internal temperature of 155 degrees.
  • Add the remaining glaze and the extra bacon to the loaf, and cook to a final internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Rest shorty. Slice and serve.!
