Tasty Tuesday: Bacon-Topped Meatloaf

My family loves meatloaf. In fact my daughter actually requested meatloaf for her birthday dinner this year! Over the years I have made many different meatloaf recipes, and often used no recipe at all, just throwing in this and that. They always came out fine...after all, can you really ruin a meatloaf? But then 10 years ago I stumbled upon the following recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. I have never made any other meatloaf recipe since. This is by far the most delicious meatloaf I have ever eaten! I would make this for company! Even if you are not a big meatloaf fan you may want to give this a try.

  •                                                                      bacon strips to cover
Directions
  • In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with bacon.
