Bacon Double Cheeseburger Stuffed Meatloaf

http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2014/04/bacon-double-cheeseburger-stuffed-meatloaf-recipe.html

A meatloaf bursting with steak flavors is just about enough to make my mouth water, but stuffing it with cheese and covering it in the delicious brown sugar ketchup glaze and layered thick cut bacon put this recipe over the top.

We are burger lovers through and through.  You really can't go wrong with a classic bacon double cheeseburger.  We eat a lot of burgers. A lot.  But sometimes I can not fathom the idea of another traditional burger even though I am craving the flavors.  So, I have started creating recipes with these favorite flavors built it.

I have a deep love and appreciation for cheese.  I don't discriminate I love 'em all.  When I was developing my idea for the Bacon Double Cheeseburger Meatloaf, I started with a meatloaf bursting with steak flavors!  I also knew stuffing it with cheese was the perfect way to incorporate that element into it.  Then as if that wasn't enough I covered it in the delicious brown sugar ketchup glaze and layered thick cut bacon over the top.

It is going to knock your socks off. Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

PRINT RECIPE

Bacon Double Cheeseburger Stuffed Meatloaf
Serves 4-6  |  ACTIVE TIME 15 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 1 Hour 15 Minutes


1 pound 93% lean beef
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
½ cup 2% milk
6 tablespoons ketchup, divided
1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 large egg
1 tablespoon brown sugar
8 ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pound bacon, uncooked

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl combine beef, bread crumbs and milk.  Pouring milk directly over bread crumbs.  Add 2 tablespoons ketchup, Worcestershire and steak seasoning. Set aside.

In a small bowl, crack egg and beat it slightly.  This helps prevent overworking the meat while combining, resulting in a tougher meatloaf.  Add egg to large bowl with meat mixture.  Combine well with hands, do not overwork the meat mixture.

Gentle press meatloaf into bowl and divide in half.  Place first half into 7x10” baking dish and form into a flat meatloaf  Gently press the center in to create a rim around the outside of the meatloaf.  Add shredded cheese i nto the center of the meatloaf. 

Form remaining half of meatloaf in the bowl into a size similar to the meatloaf in the pan.  Set op top and press the sides together to seal in the cheese.  Form into a loaf shape about 1½ - 2” tall.

You may notice cracks in the loaf.  Run your hands under warm water and then across the meatloaf to smooth the cracks out.  Set meatloaf aside.

In a small bowl combine 4 tablespoons ketchup and 1 tablespoon brown sugar.  Mix well with a fork.  Apply glaze evenly all over your meatloaf (except the bottom). 

Arrange bacon slices over the top of the meatloaf.  Start by wrapping a piece of bacon across the front side and a second piece of bacon across the back side.  Arrange remaining bacon over the top.  Tuck the ends of the bacon under the meatloaf (this prevents curling).

Place meatloaf in the oven and bake until bacon is crispy, about 1 hour. 

Remove from oven.  Allow to rest uncovered for 20 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!

    1. You can use CalorieKing.com and enter the ingredients you use to get the nutritional facts. Enjoy!

    2. This isn't exactly packed with much nutritional value. You getting protein from the burger, calcium and vitamin D. I'm not trying to cause a war of words or cause an argument. I'm simply saying, it sounds wonderful, if your a calorie or fat content conscious person, it means it's bad for you. You could make it with turkey or soy burger, Turkey bacon and use a low fat cheese. That would still be yummy and healthier. I would however love to taste this, it sounds so good!

  4. Am I just not seeing it or did you forget to mention what to do with the ketchup/Worcestershire/steak seasoning mixture? I see no mention of it after "Set aside".

    1. Are you speaking of "Add 2 tablespoons ketchup, Worcestershire and steak seasoning"? That is directing you to ADD it to the meat mixture. Enjoy.

    2. half ketchup and brown sugar go in meat mixture and the ot her half is the glaze for top the worchesterr goes in meat mixture, shows in my recipe I tried this and it is the bomb

    3. It tells you to add the steak spice, ketchup and Worcestershire to the meat mixture and then set that aside. You've misread it.

  5. What would be a good side dish to go along with this?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for asking. The side dish possibilities are endless. You can go with an indoor 'bbq' summer theme and serve it with corn on the cob, potato salad and such or lighten the meal up with a salad and broccoli. I love it either way. Enjoy!

    2. I did potatoe salad something cold and crunch

    3. Mashed potatoes, green beans ... So so matchmakers...

  6. Awesome meatloaf. I love bacon on top of mine. I can't do the tomato/ketchup, but could easily exclude that.

    Thanks for sharing...pinning it!

  15. Can I use parmesan cheese or almond meal instead of bread crumbs

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, but keep in mind to work it gently (do not over work it) It may make the loaf more dense. I have also substituted crushed Rice Chex. Let us know how it goes. Enjoy!

  16. I've made this or years. I changed it up a bit & used Italian seasonings. Delicious!!

  18. With a little bit of tweaking (bread crumbs and brown sugar), this could be a great low carb dish! :)

  19. PEOPLE, TRY TO MAKE IT BIGGER IN DIAMETER AND, WHEN READY, SLICE IT 1" THICK FOR A PERFECT BURGER PATTIE. GRILL THICK (1/2") RIPE TOMATO SLICES WITH PESTO. THEN PLACE THE MEATLOAF SLICES ON A COOKIE SHEET WITH THE TOMATO SLICE ON TOP AND MIX SHREDDED MOZZARELLA, CHEDDAR AND PARM, PUT ON TO AND BROIL TO PERFECTION. YOUR GUESTS WILL DIE FOR A BURGER LIKE THIS!

  20. Silly question but what cheese works best please x

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can I use oatmeal instead of panko crumbs? That's usually what I use in my meatloaf and all I have on hand.

    ReplyDelete
  22. How many servings does it make

    ReplyDelete
  23. OMG I love this!So much that I'm making it a 2nd time today. My daughter said it was a little spicy. I used seasoned panko bread crumbs so I'm decreasing the Montreal steak seasoning this time. Still so good!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'd eat it, but at the same time I'd be thinking that the photo of the meatloaf is probably just like what my arteries look like, lol...
