DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and milk.
  • Add the torn bread and let it absorb the liquid for about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon (very crispy but not burnt) until most but not all of the fat is rendered. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Stir the bread mixture with a fork to blend.
  • Add the remaining meatloaf ingredients, including the drained bacon, but not the beef, and mix thoroughly.
  • Fold in the beef and mix to incorporate throughout, being careful to avoid mashing or overhandling the meat.
  • Cover bowl and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to cook, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Remove bowl from the refrigerator and shape meat into a loaf approximately 5 inches long and 3 inches high.
  • Place in the middle of a low-sided baking pan and bake for 35 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk glaze ingredients together.
  • Brush meatloaf with glaze and bake for another 20 minutes.
  • Remove meat loaf from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
