In a small dish, combine all ingredients for the glaze and stir until no lumps remain. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two spots on a rimmed baking sheet and set aside.
In a shallow pan or pie plate, pour the milk over the white bread and let soak.
In a food processor, mince the onions, then transfer to a large nonstick skillet. Repeat with the mushrooms, adding them to the onions. Repeat with the carrots and celery, adding to the onions. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil onto the veggies, toss to coat, and sauté over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until most of the moisture is removed and they just start to brown. Turn the heat off and let cool for several minutes. Stir in the worcestershire sauce.
In the food processor, mince the flat leaf parsley and the garlic. Set aside.
In another small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, salt and pepper, and seasoning salt.
Add the ground beef and pork to a large mixing bowl. Pour the soaked bread and milk in, and tear into small chunks. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture on top, the parsley mixture, and sprinkle the fresh grated parmesan over that. Then, add the sautéed vegetables. Wash your hands thoroughly and gently mix everything together until no clumps or chunks remain.
Take the bacon and lay 6 slices out on each of the two greased spots on the baking sheet. Divide the meat mixture in half, and gently pat each half into a loaf shape and set on top of the bacon, wrapping the bacon ends up over the top of each loaf. Glaze each loaf with about 1/3 of the ketchup glaze mix. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until a meat thermometer registers 170 degrees (the time will depend on how thick you made the loaves). Remove from oven, top with remaining glaze, and serve.
This is also excellent baked in loaf pans. If you do it that way, just slice the bacon pieces in half and put them on top of the loaf.
