  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook over moderate heat for about 4 minutes, until they release their liquid.

  3. Increase the heat to moderately high and cook, stirring, for about 4 minutes longer until browned. Add the onion, bell pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the butter.

  4. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until the onion and bell pepper soften. Let cool to room temperature.

  5. Mince the chopped bacon in a food processor.

  6. In a large bowl, combine the minced bacon with the veal, cracker crumbs, ketchup, horseradish, egg, and the cooled mushroom mixture. Season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly with hands.

  7. Sauté a small piece of the meatloaf mixture in the skillet over moderate heat and taste for seasoning. Add more salt and pepper to the meatloaf mixture, if necessary.

  8. Pack the meat into a 2-quart loaf pan and arrange the halved bacon strips on top.

  9. Bake the meat loaf for 1¼ hours, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 140 degrees F.

  10. Drain the pan juices into a heatproof bowl and skim off the fat. There should be ⅔ cup of juices.

  13. Let the meat loaf rest in the pan for at least 10 or for up to 30 minutes.

  14. In a small saucepan, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter over low heat. Whisk in the flour until smooth, then whisk in the reserved pan juices.

  15. Bring the sauce to a simmer, whisking constantly, until thickened. Add the sour cream and cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes, until hot; do not let the sauce boil. Season with salt and pepper.

  16. Thickly slice the meatloaf and serve with the sour cream sauce. Enjoy!
