Well, this is a moment in history... (in my life anyways), I have always made meatloaf with ketchup on the top, which is really good, but this...this is incredible!
The use of Bacon as a topping is a wonderfully added flavor... plus the mixture of Lean Beef and Pork, it is just amazing! My husband kept going on and on about it! He even said, "This is better than most steaks I have ever eaten!"... I was pretty satisfied by that... ;)

as a side dish Spicy Fried Potatoes Pg. 50
These were also really amazing! And i know this statement doesn't apply for this meal, but these potatoes would make the worlds best beef and potato burrito! But they were incredible by themselves.
