Missionary Meatloaf (AKA "Man Meatloaf")

2 lbs. ground beef
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. bread crumbs
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. grated carrot
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. BBQ sauce
1/2 c. milk
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. dried sage
1/2 lb. bacon strips, uncooked
1 recipe Meatloaf Sauce (See recipe below)

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except bacon and Meatloaf sauce. Mix well. Place in greased 9 x 6 inch loaf pan. Cut bacon strips in half and place over top of meatloaf to cover. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Remove from over and drain off excess juices. Spoon on enough Meatloaf sauce to cover top. Reserve additional sauce to dip your meatloaf in. Return to oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until meatloaf is done. Let stand for a few minutes before cutting. Makes 8 servings.

Hunter LOVES meatloaf. When I told him it was his turn to cook dinner, I KNEW what he would be making...meatloaf! He likes to try different recipes to find the "Ultimate" recipe. He thought that the bacon and BBQ sauce would add the MAN touch. In fact, after he opened the oven door to check on the meatloaf he said " Oh man...if they only made a meatloaf cologne..I'd be the first in line to buy it". I got a good chuckle.
Personally I liked some of the other meatloaf recipes I've posted, but it was fun to try.
