Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set it aside.

Prepare the Meatloaf Mixture:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, cooked and crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, bread crumbs, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, chopped onion, minced garlic, beaten eggs, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.

Form the Meatloaf:

Transfer the meatloaf mixture into the prepared loaf pan, pressing it down gently and shaping it into a loaf shape.

Make the Topping:

In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar to make the topping glaze.

Add the Topping:

Spread the topping glaze evenly over the top of the meatloaf.

Bake:

Place the loaf pan in the preheated oven and bake for 60-75 minutes, or until the meatloaf is cooked through and the top is golden brown.

Rest and Serve:
Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
