Source: Full Bellies, Happy Kids
1 lb. bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled and divided (I buy pre-chopped bacon)
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef sirloin
1 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
3 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1. Heat oven to 350. Set aside 1/2 cup bacon for topping. Combine remaining bacon, ground beef, cheese, eggs, crumbs, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl; set aside.
2. Mix together ketchup, hot sauce and mustard; set aside 3 tablespoons of this mixture. Add remaining ketchup mixture to beef mixture; blend well. Press into a greased 9x5 loaf pan; spread reserved ketchup mixture over top and sprinkle with reserved bacon.
3. Bake uncovered for 50 to 60 minutes or until done. Remove from oven; let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Serves 6 to 8.
