Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
- 2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
- ¾ cup plain breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce
- 1–2 tablespoons ketchup (one tablespoon if you are using steak sauce)
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, cut into ¼ to ½-inch cubes
- 8–10 slices bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except bacon. Form into a loaf shape. Top with either a fancy bacon lattice, or lay strips across the top. Make sure to tuck the bacon under the bottom of the meatloaf.
Place in an oblong pan (7-by-11-inch with rack) and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until internal temperature is 160 degrees.
