I know I SHOULDN'T wrap stuff in bacon, but sometimes I just can't help myself! Bacon makes everything better, right? Makes great sandwiches too!

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 medium
onion, chopped
2 clove
garlic, minced
1
egg
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1/2 c
milk
1 lb
ground beef
1 lb
pork sausage
3/4 c
bread crumbs
8 oz
thin sliced bacon
3-4 slice
cheese (whatever kind you want)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350*. Prepare 9x13 baking dish by lining it with aluminum foil to make cleanup easier. A baking rack may also be placed in the dish to keep drippings away from the meatloaf.
2
Heat oil in skillet. Saute onion and garlic until soft. Set aside.
3
Mix remaining ingredients (except cheese) in a large bowl. Mix well. Add 1-2 more tablespoons of milk if the mixture sticks to bowl.
4
Place 1/2 meat mixture into a loaf pan. Pat into pan, pushing the center lower than the sides, creating a kind of bowl or trough. Place cheese into the center. Put remaining 1/2 meat mixture on top of cheese, making sure to seal the meat around the cheese. (This can also be done freehand, instead of using a loaf pan.)
5
Turn pan over onto work surface so loaf is released. Arrange bacon slices, crosswise, over loaf. Overlap slightly and tuck the ends under to prevent curling.
6
Place into foil lined baking dish and bake about an hour, until bacon is crisp and the internal temp is 160 degrees.
