Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

The Menu:
Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf
I know, my pictures are horrible lately with this yellow light... I need natural summer light back!

The Original Recipe:
I bought some mushrooms on sale, and I needed to use them up. This meatloaf was so good. I loved the stringiness of the cheese and the bacon and mushrooms. OMG it was like a bunless hamburger. It doesn't have any sauces in it or on it (like ketchup), but I didn't think it need it. My kids did use bbq sauce and ketchup to dip though, but I thought it was perfect with out anything. I served it wtih Hasselback Potatoes.
