1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 egg, beaten
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I added another small handful…I like cheese!)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 tsp each garlic powder, seasoning salt, dried oregano leaves
1/8 tsp cracked black pepper
6 slices fully cooked bacon (I ripped these into smaller pieces, so they’d fit in the pan and be about the width of a slice of meat loaf)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients except bacon. Shape into loaf in 9×5 inch loaf pan; top with bacon. Bake 1 hour or until done – 160 F (Mine was done in about 45 minutes). Let stand 5 minutes before removing from pan and slicing to serve.
**I made twice baked potatoes, brown gravy (put it on the meatloaf and potato) and asparagus.
