Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

This is the recipe a few of you have asked about. The ground beef we used was quite lean, and we baked it in an 8x8 pyrex dish, so we made a bit more of the mustard/ketchup mix for the top, since we increased the surface area by half. And yes, we really did cook and crumble real bacon, though I think it wasn't quite 10 slices (had already used part of the package for something else). It was way yummy!

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf by Paula Deen

1 pound ground chuck
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 (8-ounce) package sharp Cheddar, grated
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs, toasted
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1 (3-ounce) can French fried onions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, bacon, cheese, beaten eggs, bread crumbs, mayo, Worchestershire, salt, and pepper, mixing well. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and mustard. Stir 1/4 cup ketchup mixture into meat mixture, reserving remaining ketchup mixture. Press meat mixture into a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan, or shape into a loaf and place on a rack in a broiler pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over loaf. Bake 40 minutes. Top with French fried onions; bake another 10 to 15 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink.

Currently feeling: suddenly hungry


  1. I'm not a meatloaf fan but this sounds good enough to try out!! (Minus the onions on top though...definitely not a fan of those!) Thanks for sharing.

  2. "Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf" would HAVE to be a Paula Deen creation, wouldn't it. ;-)
