Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Nick came home one day to me watching the Food Network - this happens a lot. He then got sucked into Paula Deen's show - which also happens a lot. He was essentially drooling at this one particular episode, so he decided he was going to make it over the weekend. I was perfectly OK with that idea :) Since Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf screams comfort food, unhealthy, etc. I decided I would make a similar side to go along with it, which will posted separately. Stay tuned for the Macaroni and Cheese. I think what made the meatloaf was the sauce and the fried onions, yum. Ingredients:

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 and next 8 ingredients, 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.
