  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. Add ground beef, breadcrumbs, milk, egg, ¼ cup ketchup, worcestershire sauce, steak seasoning, garlic, cayenne, salt and pepper to a large bowl.
  3. Combine ingredients by hand until just incorporated - do not overmix!
  4. Lightly pack mixture into a ball and transfer to a lightly greased loaf pan, gently pressing meat to form a flat, even loaf.
  5. With your fingers, dig a trench for cheese down the center of loaf.
  6. Fill with grated cheddar. Be sure to leave room at the top of the trench, and seal the meat pocket shut.
  7. In a small bowl mix together remaining ketchup and brown sugar. Drizzle half of mixture over top of meatloaf.
  8. Lay strips of bacon evenly across entire loaf top, tucking the ends around side of loaf to prevent curling, and top evenly with remaining glaze.
  9. Bake meatloaf until thoroughly cooked and bacon is crispy, 50-60 minutes.
  10. Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
