  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 2 1/2 pounds ground beef 90% lean
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup ketchup divided use
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • Heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 4-5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.
  • Place the garlic and onion mixture in a large bowl along with the ground beef, salt, pepper, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, eggs and breadcrumbs. Stir well to combine.
  • Place the beef mixture on the sheet pan and shape into a loaf. Spread 1/4 cup of the ketchup over the loaf.
  • Wrap the bacon slices around the loaf, tucking the ends under the bottom. Brush the remaining ketchup over the bacon.
  • Bake for one hour or until a thermometer inserted into the center of the meat loaf registers 160 degrees F.
  • Let the meatloaf rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle parsley over the top. Slice, then serve.
