4.Transfer meatloaf mixture to prepared pan; with wet hands, gently form into 6 x 12-inch loaf and brush with about 1/4 cup glaze. Lay bacon slices crosswise over loaf, slightly overlapping; tuck ends under loaf and brush with about ¼ cup glaze.

5.Bake loaf 40 minutes; brush with remaining glaze. Bake 20 minutes longer or until bacon begins to crisp and internal temperature of loaf reaches 160°. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
