Bacon Meatloaf

I use ground chicken and turkey bacon. It is what we are use to . We are not fan's of red meat. Since hubby started weight watchers years ago, we started eatting turkey bacon. I forget what real bacon taste like lol. You can use what ever you like, thats what;s great about meatloaf. Also, grating the onion adds moisture to the meatloaf.

1 LB lean ground chicken ( beef or beef & pork or turkey)
1 medium onion, finely grated 
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
 1/2 teaspoon season salt
1 egg lightly beaten
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
6 bacon strips ( I use turkey bacon)

Heat the oven to 375°F and arrange a rack in the middle.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set it aside.

In a large bowl, Combine the meat, onion, seasonings, egg, and worcestershire sauce.  Using your hands, combine the mixture well using a kneading-like motion (but try not to overwork it).

 Form into a loaf shape and place in roasting pan.

lay bacon lengthwise to cover top and lap over the sides.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees. Do not over cook, or meatloaf will be dry.
Remove from oven and remove bacon to a plate and turn on broiler and broil till top is brown about 3 to 5 mins.
Remove and place on plate let rest 5 mins then slice and serve with the bacon.
