Paula: Hey you, come on in. I’ve just taken the bacon out of skillet because the first dish that I’m going to be making is a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf. There’s nothing that says loving like meatloaf. Now I’m going to start by layering my casserole dish with three pieces of bread. The bread will soak up the fat from the hamburger so it will give me a leaner less greasy product.
Right now the first thing I’m going to do, we got to have some cheese like cheeseburger meatloaf. Now I’m going to grate eight ounces of cheddar cheese to go into our meatloaf. We do a cheeseburger meatloaf at the lady in suns. It’s really, really good. It’s real popular but we’re taking it one step further today by adding the bacon to it because everybody loves the bacon cheeseburger.
You can use any kind of cheese you want to but I personally think the sharp cheddar adds just a lot of kick to this meatloaf. All right now I’ve got two eggs just going to beat those a little bit and pour that over the cheese. And now I’m going to add a fourth of a cup of mayonnaise. Every cheeseburger needs some mayonnaise on it. And I’m going to add a fourth of a cup of toasted plain breadcrumbs and then one tablespoon of Worchester sauce.
Al right so here we go. I’m just going to mix those up. The egg is going to help bind our meatloaf so it will hold together way up. so now I’m going to move over here and I’m going to make a topping just a ketchup and mustard topping, I think the recipe calls for like a third of a cup of ketchup in a couple of tablespoons of mustard. But I like a lot of topping. So I’m just going to mix it, you know, the way I think I would like it. All right and then we’ll put some of it over in here. And then save the rest for the top.
And then I’m going to come over here and I’m going to take my bacon and I’m just going to tear it in pieces. And I’m using about 10 slices of bacon. All right. So now, I’m going to throw in one pound of ground beef. And we’re just going to mix this all together. You know, this is the way you do it. You got to get in there and get your hands in it.
Oh gosh, smells good. Okay. That gets our meatloaf just that easily. Now I’m just going to form my meatloaf a little bit my bowl and then I’m going to roll it out. And I’m going to finish it up on top of my bread. Doesn’t that look delicious?
Now I just got to wash my hands because I got stuff all over them. so come on down here with me. And we’ll just keep on chatting while I’m washing my hands. You know, I always encourage everybody, the first time they make a recipe, and they go right by the recipe. But on the second time in making a recipe, you know, I encourage you to put things that you like in it and have fun with it.
All right, got my hands clean. So lets’ finish this meatloaf up and get it in the oven. All right now have some leftover ketchup and mustard that I’ve mixed up but I think from my topping, I’m going to add about two tablespoons of brown sugar and make that kind of barbecue seed sauces. Sweetie, you know what I’m saying?
Okay. so here we go. On top of our meatloaf, now we’re going to put this in the oven at 350 degrees oven and we’re going to let it bake for about 40 minutes, looks perfect with just enough sauce.
So in the oven this goes. We got one more thing that we want to do to our meatloaf. So I’ve got one in the oven. It’s been cooked approximately 40 minutes. Oh and it looks good, looks very good. Now what I’m going to do to this meatloaf is I’m going to take just canned onion rings. It’s just in a little can in the grocery store section. Well I’m just going to pour these onion rings over that meatloaf. And now it goes back into the oven for another 15 minutes.
All right so look at this meatloaf, looks so good. Oh, I see a piece of bacon trying to peek out. But this little piggy is not getting away from Paula. Look at that. Oh my gracious, I think you’re going to like this one.
