Ingredients … 1 cup milk 4 bread slices 1 pound ground beef 1 pound ground pork 1 cup Parmesan, grated 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon Lawry’s seasoning salt black pepper 1/2 cup parsley, minced 4 eggs, beaten 8 to 12 thin bacon slices 1 1/2 cups ketchup 6 tablespoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon dry mustard
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Pour the milk over the bread and allow it to soak in for several minutes.
3. Place the ground beef, milk soaked bread, Parmesan cheese, salt, seasoned salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the eggs. With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat from the meat to drain.
4. Lay the bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
5. To make the tomato gravy, pour the ketchup into a small mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar and dry mustard. Stir the mixture until well combined. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the meatloaf.
6. Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the remaining tomato gravy over the meatloaf. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.
7. Serve with the remaining tomato gravy on the side as a dipping sauce.
