In a large bowl combine ground beef, onion, eggs, Hickory House rub, bread crumbs, and cooked bacon. Using your hands, mix well.
Divide the mixture into two equal halves.
Place one half on the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish and form into a loaf shape about 1/2 inch thick.
Place cheese/bacon jam mixture in the middle, allowing an inch around the edges.
Place second half of the mixture on top and seal the edges, forming the meatloaf.
