I took my mom's meatloaf recipe as a base - which is very good by the way, and added some new elements. I love left over meatloaf for grilled cheese and meatloaf sandwiches or just a cold sandwich with mayo, lettuce and tomato.

This is a tip I learned on the Rachel Ray Show a long time ago - Get about a tablespoon of the meat mixture and microwave until done 20 seconds. Taste to see if additional salt and pepper is desired.

After you are happy with the flavor place meat mixture in a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Top with 1/2 cup tomato pepper sauce. Then place bacon across the top.

Bake for an hour to an hour and a half until done. Let sit for 5 to ten minutes. Serve with additional tomato pepper sauce.
