Let's Make It
Bring first 5 ingredients to boil in saucepan, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool.
Heat oven to 350ºF. Mix 1/2 cup of the tomato mixture with all remaining ingredients except bacon just until blended; shape into 9x5-inch loaf in shallow pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with remaining tomato mixture.
Top with bacon, placing slices lengthwise over top of loaf and overlapping slices as needed to completely cover top of meatloaf.
Bake 1 hour or until meatloaf done (160ºF), basting occasionally with pan drippings.
Serve this moist meatloaf with smart sides, such as a crisp mixed green salad and hot steamed fresh vegetable.
For Crisp Bacon Topping
For a crispier bacon topping, after removing meatloaf from oven, heat broiler. Broil meatloaf, 4 inches from heat, 1 to 2 min. or until bacon is crisp.
Prepare meatloaf as directed; cool, then slice. Wrap individual portions in foil. Label, date and place in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. When ready to serve, unwrap and microwave until heated through (160°F).
