- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 6 slices bacon
- 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, cut into quarters
- 1 teaspoon ketchup
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl, add your ground beef, 2 tablespoons ketchup, and eggs and mix with your hands until combined.
Add in the bread crumbs, Parmesan, garlic, pepper, oregano, basil, salt along with your onion and mix it again.
Line a baking dish with your bacon, so that it is all together.
Take about half of your meat mixture and place it across the bacon.
Add cheese over the entire loaf.
Put the other half of the meat mixture on top of the cheese.
Pull the ends of the bacon to cover the entire loaf, overlapping if you can in the center.
Cover the top of the loaf with 1 tbsp ketchup and place in the oven at 375 for 60 minutes (or until no longer pink in the center).
Once cooked, pull out the meat loaf and cover the top with your remaining cheese and return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
