  • 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

  • cups Minced Flat-leaf Parsley

  • 4

    whole Eggs Beaten

  • 10

    slices Thin/regular Bacon

  • Sauce:

  • 1-½

    cup Ketchup

  • cups Brown Sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon Dry Mustard

  • Tabasco To Taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour milk over the bread slices. Allow it to soak in for several minutes. Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Pour in beaten 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 to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!) 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. Serve with mashed potatoes. Yummy!
