DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix all the ingredients except the bacon in a large bowl.
  2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper
  3. Take the whole mixture and "press" it into the loaf pan firmly, as to try and eliminate any big air bubbles
  4. Place the 3 strops of bacon on top of the mixture, so that as it cooks the bacon fat will render down into the mix.
  5. Slide in a 350 degree oven for 1.5 hours.
  6. NOTE> you can also cover the surface of the meatloaf with more ketchup about halfway through the cook, it gives it a nice tasty crust
