I have made this several times and this is the only way my husband will eat meatloaf. I enjoy it myself, however I rarely have swiss cheese on hand and rarely buy it, so I will sometimes substitute it with mozzarella cheese. Since it's just my husband and I eating, I will make smaller loaves and freeze the rest. This also cuts the bake time in half.
I've made this a couple times but I used cheddar cheese instead of swiss. This is a keeper!
None of my family are big meat loaf lovers, but this recipe they all loved.
Yummmm. I increased the meat to 2 lbs, but spread it out rather than form a loaf in the pan, so the cooking time was the same. It was just the right size for three adults and three children.
Very good, but a little pricey with all that bacon.
