BBQ Bacon Cheese Meatloaf (p1)

I never liked meat loaf when i was a kid. I'd always try it and scrunch up my nose at it. Now that I'm older and here lately I have been really hungry for it??? I've been looking for some recipes to try and have found so many variations that I'm almost overwhelmed. I have my mothers recipe and I like it much better now that I'm older - but wanted to perhaps try some others. In visiting with my friend Gretchen the other day she told me about one that her family enjoys and is basically P1 friendly. Below is the ingredients she uses:

Gretchen's BBQ Bacon Cheese Meatloaf (p1)

1 lb ground beef 1 lb ground turkey (both the 93/7 if you can)
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar free or low sugar BBQ sauce, divided
1 small onion, grated or finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped greenbell pepper
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, small diced
1 tbsp Worcestershire
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup bacon bits (real ones)
salt and pepper to taste

Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until well cooked Mix all ingredients together in a bowl with 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce and mixed well. Place and shape in a (lightly sprayed on bottom) loaf pan and bake. Take out and drain a few times if your hamburger meat isn't overly lean. After 30 -35 mins take out and pour the last 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce on top and bake approximately 30 min's longer or til done.
