Grilled Cheesy Meat Loaf

I like meat loaf.  There, I said it.  And this is topped with bacon, I mean, really, who could not like it?  


1 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
1/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
3 Tbs ketchup
1 tsp onion salt

1/2 tsp pepper
1 egg

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

4 slices center-cut bacon, cut crosswise in half


Preheat oven to 375.  In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except bacon.  Pat mixture into loaf shape, top with bacon slices.  Transfer to broiler pan (I use a broiler pan to catch the drippings) and bake for an hour, or until center is no longer pink.  The last several minutes, broil on high to crisp-up the bacon.

Serves 4
