My Awesome Bacon Cheeseburger Meat Loaf

IMG_0690

I have been told that meat loaf is “old people’s food”.  Well if you try my recipe for bacon cheeseburger meatloaf both young and old will like this.  The idea is to create a giant cheeseburger by having all the ingredeints being what you find on a cheeseburger.  It’s easy to make and I guarantee you that everyone in the family will love this !!  Like most recipes the measurements are best done by using your best judgements because when I make this I basically throw it together.

Ingredients

3 lbs of meatloaf mixture (beef, pork, and veal)
1 medium onion diced
ketchup
mustard
mayonnaise
shredded cheddar cheese
6 strips of bacon
1 egg beaten
a handful of bread crumbs
salt
pepper
oregano
basil
worchestire sauce
 

Directions

In roasting pan take the meat and add all the ingredients except the bacon.  Mix very thoroughly together and form a nice looking meatloaf.  Cover with foil and place in preheated oven at 350 degrees.  Cook covered for 45 minutes. While the meatloaf is cooking fry up the bacon until crisp.  Put bacon in a sandwich bag and crush until it looks like bacon bits.  Uncover meatloaf and let cook uncovered until  it starts to turn brown.  Take out of oven and put the bacon bits on top of meatloaf and sprinkle some more shredded cheese.  After cheese melts you have the greatest meatloaf on the planet.  I like to put some potatoes around the meatloaf to have as a side.  You can also put some carrots in there if you desire.
