Bacon Double Cheeseburger Stuffed Meatloaf

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.

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 into 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. I need to know the calories and nutrition information per serving. Looks delicious!

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

  2. I was planning on making meatloaf tonight for dinner. I just found a new way to dazzle the family...Thanks!

    1. Enjoy! Let us know how it goes if you get a chance to try it.

  3. I just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE your website and all of your recipes. Out of all of the other recipe websites out there that I have tried. You have one of the BEST that I have ever found, hands down. Keep up the good work!

  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.

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

    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!

  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!

  7. Made this tonight with Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning, Boar's Head 3-Pepper Colby Jack and Jalapeño Bacon. Really good! Took about 1 hr 15 min to cook.

  8. Made this tonight for my family and they loved it

  9. Made this tonight and it was delicious! Was hoping for leftovers for lunch, but my family made sure that was not going to happen!

  10. Its in the oven now! Can't wait to try it!

  11. Going in the over you bake this covered? It states to allow to rest uncovered for 20 minutes.

    1. I cook it uncovered, but if the bacon gets too crispy add some aluminum foil. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  12. Meatloaf is my husband's weakness. I surprised him with this recipe last week, and I believe he fell in love with me all over again. So thank you :)

  13. This is a keeper!!! I made it for dinner tonight; it did not taste like a typical meatloaf. It was flavorful and moist. Thank you so much!
