  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring frequently, until bacon is crisp and onions are transparent. Drain off excess grease, and set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, pork sausage, bacon and onions, spinach, olives, pistachio nuts, 1 cup of ketchup, eggs, and meatloaf seasoning until well blended. Pat meat into a loaf shape, and place in a large baking pan. A roasting pan will work well. Poke cheese cubes into the top of the loaf so they are completely covered. Brush remaining ketchup generously over the top.
  4. Bake for 1 1/2 hours in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature of the loaf is 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).

Really great flavor, especially for a meatloaf. I did cut this down to feed only 6. To cut down on the grease, use ground chuck or sirloin beef and use lean pork sausage and I trimmed the excess fat off of the bacon. Mixed a little chili sauce into the ketchup to give the glaze a nice kick. Nice time I might mince some jalapeno peppers in.

Well, I did not put in the spinach, black olives or pistachios - my family wouldn't go for that in meatloaf! However, with bacon and jack cheese, I don't think this meatloaf CAN go wrong! I did add some garlic powder, worchestershire sauce, and 1/2 can of Hunt's meatloaf tomato sauce (and put the other half on top of the meatloaf).

this is a good meatloaf but i would suggest putting the loaf pan in a roasting pan or on a cookie sheet as there is a lot of grease. ran over the side of my pan sheet caught it all

I'm always looking for different ways of making the same old meatloaf and this was certainly it! I used turkey sausage and added a bit of cayenne pepper, I skipped the nuts and the meatloaf seasoning mix as there's way too much salt in that for my taste. I made up for it by adding my own seasonings. Yummy and thanks!

This is a totally awsome recipe! It has alot of depth and flavor. I did leave out the pistachio nuts and instead of ground beef I used ground turkey to cut cost. The flavor remained consistant and it still had a nice moist texture. Once again it is a very succulent recipe that 6 out of 7 of my family members enjoyed and said we'd definately make this again!

I cut down this recipe significantly to feed two people for dinner and to have left overs for dinner the next day. We both thought this was a tasty meatloaf.

This is quite the meatloaf! Like many others I scaled the recipe down to 6 servings, but still had a large meatloaf on my hands. Large but delicious! Other than leaving out the pistachio nuts I kept to the recipe, but next time I would probably add my own seasonings instead of the prepared ones, most to cut down the salt. We enjoyed this for 2 dinners and are still enjoying the sandwiches.
