Cheesy Bacon Meatloaf

Meatloaf 1

I wasn’t always a fan of meatloaf growing up if you ever had my mom’s meatloaf you would understand why. Don’t worry, I’m not saying this to be mean, it’s just the truth. If you ask her about her meatloaf she just laughs and says  “well, it’s usually hit or miss”. And if she says it’s a miss, then dominos is on the menu.  It has become the family joke- make whatever for supper mom just not a meatloaf! I do have to say that meatloaf is about the ONLY thing that woman can’t cook.. well.. and turkey, but that’s a whole different story. ha.

Enough about my mom’s meatloaf let’s talk about mine. This flavorful Meatloaf is loaded with chunks of bacon and globs of cheese. The meat is moist and the ends are crispy. Baked to perfection in the oven, this meatloaf is sure to be a family favorite.  Definitely not my Mamma’s meatloaf. 😉

Ingredients:

Meatloaf

2.25 pounds ground beef

1/2 pound of bacon (fried and crumbled.. you could do this the night before)

8 oz of shredded melting cheese ( I use Velveeta)

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. minced garlic ( you could always use garlic powder if you don’t have minced garlic)

1 tsp. Worcestershire

2 tsp. mustard

1/2 C. Ketchup

2 C. breadcrumbs ( I used seasoned)

3 eggs

Glaze: 

1 C. ketchup

1 tsp. Worcestershire

1 tsp. mustard

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

Add all ingredients for the meatloaf to a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to fold the ingredients into the ground beef ( this is going to get messy so you may want to take off your rings). Once all the ingredients are mixed into the meatloaf, place it into a greased 7 X 11 cake pan. I try to shape mine into an oval shape, then I take my hands and press the ends in some. Next, mix up your glaze. Spread the glaze evenly over the top of the meatloaf. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 50 minutes to an hour, or until meatloaf is cooked the whole way threw ( a meat thermometer is a good tool to use here). As soon as meatloaf is finished call dibs on the end piece, it’s the best! 😉

*My four Ingredient Mac & Cheese is the perfect side dish for this Meatloaf!
