Meatloaf with Bacon Jam

The original recipe for this comes from Taste and I have to be honest I was sold as soon as I saw Bacon Jam!  This was deliciously moist and flavoursome and that bacon jam is unreal!  My kids are loving dill pickles at the moment hence why they have been added to the middle of the meatloaf, this is of course optional but I love the extra flavour it gives the dish.
