in a medium to large bowl mix all ingredients except bacon and cheddar cheese together and add to ground pork.
spray a loaf pan and put half of pork mixture in pan. on top of this put 3 strips of bacon length ways. then i put a small hand full of brown sugar on top of bacon(opt.) then the cheddar cheese. then top with the rest of the pork mixture. bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes or till the donest you like.
if you want it to have a smoky flavor you can add a little liquid smoke to the pork mixture. you can use any bbq sauce you like and dried herbs i was just trying to use up some of my fresh ones.
