This isn't your run-of-the-mill meatloaf.

Ruth Reichl, food writer and former editor-in-chief of the now defunct Gourmet magazine, shares what she calls the " Best meatloaf recipe ever" on her blog today. The recipe comes from the magazine's kitchen tester Ian Knauer.

Unlike other meatloaf recipes, Mr. Knauer's calls for smoky bacon baked right into the ground pork and beef mixture, instead of layered on top. And to add a bit of sweetness, it also mixes in pitted prunes, chopped up in a food processor.

While it feeds up to eight people, Ms. Reichl recommends saving some leftovers for breakfast the next day, when it can be heated up and served with fried egg.
