In a large bowl, add the eggs, parmesan cheese, tomato paste, heavy cream, onions and all the spices, mix well. Add in the ground beef and pork, and mix until combined, but do not over mix. Set the bowl aside and grab your bacon!
Lay out half of the strips of bacon vertically, very close together, on a piece of parchment paper sprayed with nonstick spray. Fold back every other piece of bacon and lay a strip of bacon tightly close to the piece running horizontally. Put the folded pieces back and fold back the other set of bacon strips, adding another piece horizontally. Continue the process until you have used all the strips of bacon.
Add the meatloaf mixture over the top of the bacon weave and spread out evenly. Add the shredded cheddar down the middle and use the parchment paper to help you roll it into a loaf shape. Place a baking dish over the top and invert the loaf so that the weave is on top. Make sure the sides are sealed up with the meat mixture and no cheese is showing on either side.
Bake for 60-80 minutes and check during the last 15 minutes to make sure the bacon is not burning. If it’s getting too browned, cover with aluminum foil for the remaining cooking time.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest slightly before serving.
Cooking time might vary depending on how thick your meatloaf is. Mine took exactly 1 hour, so be sure to check with a meat thermometer to make sure it's cooked through.
