Ingredients

1 lb
lean ground beef
1 lb
ground pork, unseasoned
1
egg
1/2 small
onion, chopped
1/4
red bell pepper, chopped
1
celery stalk, chopped
1
sleeve ritz crackers, crushed
2 tsp
garlic powder
2 clove
garlic, minced
1 Tbsp
paprika
1 can(s)
tomato sauce, 8 oz
1 lb
maple bacon
1/2 lb
pepper jack cheese, cubed
1 can(s)
green diced chiles, drained

TOMATO GLAZE

1/2 c
brown sugar
1 Tbsp
yellow mustard
1/4 c
ketchup
1 can(s)
tomato sauce, 8 oz

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350'.
2Mix meats, onion, celery, red pepper, cheese and spices. Set aside.
3Combine 1 can of tomato sauce with egg.
4Add crushed Ritz to meat mixture, add tomato mixture and combine. Using your hands is the easiest method.
5Lay strips of bacon in bottom and up the sides of a foil loaf pan making sure ends hang over the sides of pan. Add meat mixure, fold ends of bacon over top of meat. Bake for 60 minutes. I use 2 foil pans, a loaf pan for the meatloaf and a larger one to put the loaf pan in. Poke holes in the bottom of the loaf pan prior to adding meat mixture. Grease will drain into larger foil pan as it cooks, leaving virtually no clean up mess.
6While meat is baking make glaze for top. Combine 1 can of tomato sauce, mustard, ketchup and brown sugar, stir set aside.
7Remove from oven, drain. Pour glaze over meat. Bake uncovered for another 15 minutes.
