My husband was very appreciative of this meat loaf.  The beauty of this one is that it is made in a casserole dish and is absolutely easy and a no-fuss way to make meat loaf.  The oven I used is not my normal oven.  It runs very hot, so this meat loaf browned more than I think it would in a normal oven.

2 lbs ground beef (0.9 kg)
3 slices bacon, cut in pieces with scissors
1/cup chopped green onions (60 mL)
2 eggs
11/tsp salt (6 mL)
1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (2 mL)
21/cups grated Mozzarella cheese, (625 mL)

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C)

In large bowl, combine ground beef, finely-cut bacon and green onions.  In small bowl beat eggs, salt, garlic and black pepper together with a fork until well combined.  Add to ground beef and mix well.  Turn out half the meat mixture into a 1-qt (1 L) casserole dish.  Cover with 2 cups (500 mL) grated Mozzarella cheese.  Cover with remaining meat and 1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Mozzarella cheese, OR more, to taste.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes on the lower shelf of the oven.
