Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onion, celery, bell peppers, garlic, green onions, parsley, eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well. On a sheet of wax paper, shape meat mixture into a ½-inch thick rectangle. Spread cheese over meat, leaving a ¾-inch border around edges. Evenly sprinkle bacon over cheese. Roll meat in a jellyroll fashion to enclose filling and form a pinwheel loaf. Press both ends to enclose cheese. Place in a 10″ x 15″ baking pan and cook 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Once baked, top with additional cheese or ketchup and mustard, if desired. To create the meatloaf sandwiches, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spread one side of each slice of bread with butter then place butter-side down in the skillet. Add a slice of cheese to each piece of bread. Once melted, remove from skillet. Top with a slice of meatloaf then add lettuce, one more slice of cheese and other desired toppings. Close with additional piece of buttered bread. Enjoy.
