Mix the ground beef with the egg, breadcrumbs (or potato flour), salt and pepper. Also add the beef stock (I'm not sure that's the correct translation though, the product I'm using is thicker).
This is what I'm referring to....
Flatten the ground beef onto plastic.
Spread the cream cheese on top of the meat. I used cream cheese flavoured with tomato & pesto. If you prefer you can use regular cream cheese and add some kind of flavouring on your own.
It also works really well with feta cheese or mozzarella if you prefer that. There are also many other kinds of flavoured cream cheese, and if you like mushrooms I recommend to add that as well.
Add the onion. I melted some butter in a pan and fried the onion for a couple of minutes but that's optional ;-)
I also added fresh thyme. Then use the plastic to roll the meat.
Move the meatloaf to a tin plate. Remove the plastic.
Start wrapping the meatloaf with the bacon.
It's now ready to put in the oven. Turn it on to 180 degrees Celsius. The meatloaf needs about 30 minutes in the oven.
The finished result!
Serve with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam, or with potato wedges and a nice gravy.
