- 1 cup Whole Milk
- 6 slices White Bread
- 2 pounds Ground Beef
- 1 cup (heaping) Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
- ¼ teaspoons Seasoned Salt
- ¾ teaspoons Salt
- Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- ⅓ cups Minced Flat-leaf Parsley
- 4 whole Eggs Beaten
- 1 big Onion
- 10 slices Thin/regular Bacon
- 1-½ cup Ketchup
- ⅓ cups Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
- Tabasco To Taste
Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan (if you don't have Parmesan you can use any cheese you have in your fridge), chopped oinion, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and chopped parsley in a large mixing bowl. Pour in beaten eggs.
Mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain.
Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.
Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top. Bake for another 15 minutes. Slice and serve with remaining sauce.
