This bacon-wrapped meatloaf takes comfort food to the next level thanks to crispy bacon crust and a sweet and tangy ketchup glaze.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchement or nonstick foil.
Heat the oil in a medium nonstick pan until it's hot, but not smoking. Add the onion and saute until transluent, about 3-5 mins. Add the garlic and saute 2 mins more. Cool to room temperature.
While the onion mixture is cooling, combine the remaining ingredients (except 2 Tbsp ketchup, brown sugar, and bacon) in a large bowl. Add the onion mixture and mix well to combine (I recommend using your hands to mix).
Form the meatloaf mixture into a rectangle loaf on the prepared baking sheet. Whisk 2 Tbsp ketcup with 1 Tbsp brown sugar and brush over the meatloaf.
Lay the strips of bacon over the meatloaf from short end to short end, overlapping slightly. Be sure the top, sides, and ends are completely covered.
Bake for about 1 hour - 1 hour, 15 mins, rotating the pan once or twice in the oven as it bakes. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and tent with foil. Allow it to sit for about 10 mins before slicing.
