3/4 cup heavy cream
6 slices white bread, crusts removed, but retained
2 pounds hamburger
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated aged cheddar
1/4 cup minced parsley (fresh)
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 small red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Jumbo eggs, beaten
5 slices bacon
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup Frank's sweet chili sauce
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pour cream over bread slices and allow it to soak for several minutes until mushy.
  •  Add beef, onions, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, celery salt, sea salt, white pepper and parsley.
  • With clean hands, mix the mixture together until uniform in consistency.
  • Add beaten eggs and mix again.
  • Form into mixture into a loaf.  I use an actual loaf pan and then lift it out.
  • Line a jelly roll or broiler pan with foil. This avoids a huge mess.
  • Place loaf in center.
  • Lay bacon slices over top of the meatloaf.
  • Arrange retained bread crusts along edges of meatloaf about an inch away to absorb the grease and liquids that cook off the meatloaf.
  • Make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients together.
  • Spread half the sauce over the top.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Spread remaining sauce over the top.
  • Bake another 15 minutes.
  • Discard bread edges.
  • Enjoy.
