    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    Enjoy this, my friends! If you’re on the fence about meatloaf, or even if you’ve written it off entirely as something you’d never ever try, give this a shot. Consider it adventure eating, like huitlacoche. Or calf nuts.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. 2
      Pour milk over the bread slices. Allow it to soak in for several minutes.
    3. 3
      Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl.
    4. 4
      Pour in beaten eggs.
    5. 5
      With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined.
    6. 6
      Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!).
    7. 7
      Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
    8. 8
      Make the sauce. Add ketchup, brown sugar, dry mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.
    9. 9
      Bake for 45 minutes.
    10. 10
      Pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top.
    11. 11
      Bake for another 15 minutes.

      I'm not a huge meatloaf fan, but my husband is, so I make one now and again. This was really good. Even I liked it. LoL! Served with baked sweet potato and roasted cauliflower. :)

      My husband and I HATE meatloaf.....after watching Ree's show though and the promise of bacon and that we would in fact like it I made this recipe. We were both surprised how much we actually liked it. Another poster mentioned that they skipped the yourself a favor and don't skip the sauce. The brown sugar, mustard, ketchup reminds me of a home made bbq sauce...the tabasco sauce was a nice little touch as well. Applying two layers of the sauce make it a nice thicker BBQ-esq sauce on top with the bacon. One thing I need to recommend is that if you cook the entire 2lbs, watch the size of loaf and be prepared, it will take more than the 45 minutes to allow it to be cooked through and "well done" on the inside. <br/>This definately isn't your mother's meatloaf. Ree was right once again. Give this one a try, you won't regret it. ;) I served this with fried potatoes, biscuits, and Rees Fresh Corn Casserole.

      I made a smaller 1/2 sized meatloaf last evening skipping the ketchup topping. It was a very good winter comfort meal with mashed spuds and peas mixed with mushrooms. The loaf has a good hearty flavor base and DH said "the bacon doesn't hurt any", lol. This is quite likely to be made here again. Thanks Lynn :D
