  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. In a bowl, combine the meat, apples, breadcrumbs, spices, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. With the meat mixture, shape a 25 x 10-cm (10 x 4-inch) loaf on the baking sheet. Place the slices of bacon, side by side, diagonally on the loaf to thoroughly coat the meat. Bake for about 1 hour. If you use a meat thermometer, it should read 82 °C (180 °F). Remove the meatloaf from the oven and brush with the apple jelly. Finish cooking under the broiler until golden brown.
  4. Top with applesauce and serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.

    I normally don't like meatloaf... and this is awesome! Will do it again

    Although the combination of salt & sweet foods is not a winner in my household I must say that this recipe was a success. The only change I made was to serve it topped with a little homemade 'pepperoncino' (hot peppers pieces in olive oil) and this added a little 'spice' to the sweetness without overbearing the sweetness. Thanks Ricardo for adding variety to our meals.
