Chop vegetables while toasting bread. In a mixing bowl put ground meat, add egg, vegetables and Worcestershire Sauce. Tear bread into small pieces and add to mix. Knead ingredients together and add syrup and salt and pepper. Knead until mixture is homogeneous.
Place mixture in lubricated baking dish and spread out evenly. Add bacon in a weaving pattern on top. Cover and place in oven.
After about 30 minutes, remove cover and put under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until bacon is of desired crispness.
