6. Put egg, milk and bread mixture into the meat mixture along with half of the can of mushroom soup. Add bacon crumbles. Gently but thoroughly mix meatloaf.
7. Shape meat mixture into a loaf and use a loaf pan or use a 9 by 13 pan which has been sprayed with Pam.
8. Mix the ketchup and the remainder of the mushroom soup together and spread over the meatloaf.
9. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of loaf reads 135 to 140 degrees, 55 to 65 minutes. Let meat loaf cool about 15 minutes before slicing.
