prepared yellow mustard
ground beef chuck
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded Cheddar cheese
dry bread crumbs
ground black pepper
1 (3 ounce) can
I increased this recipe to use 1 1/2 pounds ground beef. I made this meat loaf with my youngest son. We followed this recipe closely only using dijon mustard and adding a good amount of Stacey's Hamburger Seasoning, which is also from this site. When we started mixing the meat loaf together, it was VERY wet. Like "how is this going to hold together" wet. We added another half cup of bread crumbs to hold it together. I used my Perfect Meatloaf Pan to make this--it was PACKED. I did follow the directions to sprinkle the french fried onions over the meat loaf but I was worried about how those onions would stick to the top with the meat loaf halfway cooked. What I did was spread a good amount of ketchup over the top of the meat loaf, then sprinkle the french fried onions over the ketchup. This did take two hours to bake in the Perfect Meatloaf Pan total. This did make a good meat loaf, with a good amount of both bacon and cheese. I'm glad I added the additional spice mixture because I think it would have been bland without it. I wouldn't have thought that adding a minimal amount of mayonnaise would make a difference but it really does. I served this with garlic dills, Meme's Mashed Potatoes (Southern Plate recipe) and Cajun Buttered Corn.
First try on this one. After cooking the full hour, we let it cook a bit and "turned" it out on to a plate. While the flavor was good it was "mush. It did not hold together at all. If I tried it again I guess I might try and put more bread crumbs in as the other reader suggested and cut way back on the mustard. It was a little strong for our taste.
This recipe is AWESOME! Due to dietary needs in our family, I had to make the following changes: used low sodium turkey bacon, a 19 oz. pkg. of ground turkey, an 8 oz. pkg. of non-dairy cheddar cheese, Egg Beaters, and omitted the onions. This meatloaf was so moist and flavorful. Even my ultra picky 10 year old had seconds. Thanks for this recipe!
After finding this recipe, the hubby wanted to give it a try, and it was pretty good! This meatloaf will occasionally make the rotation of "staple" meals in our household. I actually thinked we liked it better reheated on the second day, as the bacon flavour seemed to meld more. The only things I did a little differently; I added only 1 egg based on another reviewer's suggestion that the meatloaf was too mushy (but I will add the second egg next time) and instead of mixing the cheese into the loaf, I placed 3/4 of the meat mixture in the meatloaf pan, then layered all the called for cheese (sliced into 1/4 inch slices, rather than shredded) on top, then topped with the remaining 1/4 meat mixure. We ended up with a gooey cheese "middle" that was yummy!
Very good! I realized that I did not get the French-fried onions @ the store (doh!), so I just chopped some onion and added it to the meat mixture. I had more than 1 pound of beef (more like 1-3/4 pound, lol), so I adjusted the other ingredients accordingly, except for the eggs, which I kept at 2, added in a little garlic powder and I doubled the sauce mixture (I was glad I did b/c it was good). I also needed to add more breadcrumbs than called for. While this didn't taste 'just like' a bacon cheeseburger, it was very flavorful, moist and yummy! We all enjoyed it, and I will def be making it again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Try adding 2 slices of bread to the bottom of the baking dish. This will absorb any extra grease from the meat. Once you remove the meatloaf from the cooking pan (dish) cut off the grease soaked bread before serving.
Super good and super easy to make. I'm not a fan of the traditional meatloaf, but this variation was amazing and my 5 yr old asked for seconds. I highly recommend using top quality beef. I used a not so top grade and it came out very oily. Other than that it was DELICIOUS!!!!!!
It SAYS to render the fat out of the bacon! And if you use a leaner cut such as ground round (85/15 you will not have the grease problem. My family loved this , although I would not serve it every day. But as an occasional meal it is tasty and well received! It deserves five stars form flavor!
