It's been a while... how 'bout some Bacon Topped Meatloaf?

{real women eat meat topped with bacon}
Apologizes. Apologizes all around. Holidays are a weird time--- you are busy yet not busy and you can't figure out where the heck all your time went. Anyways, hope you all had a great holiday season, I know I did! One particular gift I'm especially psyched out of my mind about...
That's right friends... guess who got a new set of pots and pans! 

...Have you ever had a lid so shiny? Ya like the husby who just decided to be apart of the shot?
 We never got anything like this for our wedding 29 long months ago (can you believe it's only been that long.. feels like 20 years) so we had a mix and match style variety of pots and pans. It's nice to know you wont be getting small black pieces of Teflon in your food anymore- and to know that there is a lid for all your pots instead of coming up with your own lid made from a plate. Yeah, it's fun being poor sometimes!
That picture could be a page in an I Spy book with all the random objects (ie my blue shoe).

Enough jibber jabber- on to the recipe!
2 lbs. lean ground beef sirloin
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup corn flake crumbs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Montreal Stake Seasoning
1/2 lb. bacon strips, uncooked

Meatloaf Sauce:
1 cup ketchup
1 cup brown sugar

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except bacon. Mix well. Place in greased 9x6 inch loaf pan. Cut bacon strips in half and place over top of meatloaf to cover. Mix 1 cup ketchup and brown sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
Bake at 350F for about 1 hour. Remove from oven and drain off excess juices. Spoon enough Meatloaf sauce to cover top. Return to oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until meatloaf is done (when meat thermometer reads 350F). Let stand for a few minutes before serving. Use remaining sauce for passing!
