  3. Place the meat mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and hand-form into a meatloaf shape; brush about ¼ (heaping) cup of the BBQ sauce all over the meatloaf, then sprinkle on a little black pepper, and bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until cooked through; allow the meatloaf to rest for about 10 minutes.
  4. Slather on about ½ cup more of the BBQ sauce, then slice the meatloaf into medium-thick slices.
  5. Assemble the burgers by spreading a little mayo (if desired) onto both top and bottom bun; add a couple of slices of meatloaf (you can add a little more BBQ sauce, if desired), followed by a couple of strips of bacon and a sprinkle of some of the Crispy-fried Shallots; cover with top bun, and serve.
