PREPARATION

When ready to cook, start your Traeger on Smoke with the lid open (4-5 minutes), or until the fire is established. Set the temperature to 350 F and preheat, lid closed (10-15 minutes)

Combine all ingredients, except for the BBQ sauce, in a large bowl. Fold gently; use your hands.

Spray a 12-cup muffin or mini loaf pan with cooking spray. Spoon the meat mixture into the cups.

Top each meatloaf mancake with 2 tsp. of BBQ sauce.

Bake for 25 minutes.

Prepare the mashed potatoes while the meatloaf bakes.

Once the meat has finished cooking, pipe the mashed potatoes on top of each mini meatloaf using a pastry bag with a large star tip.

Shower with chives and bacon. Enjoy!
