created an account just to review this recipe. it was excellent! made 2 for a large gathering and had leftovers for sandwiches! used a packet for the gravy as a time-saver. the bacon over the top is what really makes the flavor pop!
Thanks for this recipe, Abillus - It is a really good basic meatloaf. It is easy to put together, not over-spiced and the cheese bits add a nice touch of creaminess. The loaf cooks evenly and is nice and moist. It reached an internal temperature of 142° in the hour it was in the oven and bumped 150° after resting for 15 minutes (I highly recommend resting any meatloaf for 15-30 minutes after getting it out of the oven). Now, if only I could make a nice brown gravy such as is in you picture!
