Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

A fun new twist on an old classic recipe, Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf is a family favorite.

One of our favorite meals that I’ve been making since just after we got married is Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf.  Now this recipe is not healthy in any form or fashion.  It has bacon and cheese.  I don’t make it too often because of this.  I try to make it a special treat.  I made mini loafs for The Hardworking Husband for while I was visiting in Denver and for Dear Friend so she didn’t have to cook after having a baby.  They turn out so cute!  

When I made the meatloaf for them, I had a bit of a mishap.  My oven quit working.  The stovetop worked, the broiler worked, but the oven just wouldn’t heat up.  Fortunately when we bought our house, the sellers paid for a home warranty for us.  We only had to pay for a service call to have it fixed.  I am so glad we had it.  My oven is fixed and will be ready for me when I get home.

A fun new twist on an old classic recipe, Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf is a family favorite.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 8 oz shredded cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup ketchup, plus enough to cover the top.
  • 1 - 3 oz can french fried onions


  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a skillet cook bacon. I cut up the bacon in small pieces and then cook it. But you could cook it and then crumble it. When cooked, place on a paper towel to drain.
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except french fried onions. Mix thoroughly. Place in a loaf pan or in 4 mini loaf pans. Spread ketchup over the top and bake for 40 minutes if using large loaf pan or 20 minutes for mini loaf pans.
  3. Then remove from oven and sprinkle french fried onions. Bake for another 10 - 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Enjoy.

I am Kerry’s lost cause, but she never gives up on me. She made this for me once, I’m not a fan of meatloaf but could live on bacon. This was the best meatloaf I’d ever had. I’m going to try and make it today.

My husband is anti-meatloaf because he said he had it one too many times growing I never get to make it. I really like meatloaf, though. I should try this one :)

This one doesn't really taste like meat loaf, but still tastes fantastic. And the bacon makes it very enticing. I bet he would give up his anti-meatloaf stance after eating this one. And don't you hate that because your husband doesn't like something, you rarely get to eat something you love. For me it's chicken & veggie stir fry.

My friend that I made this for said it's the best meat loaf she's ever eaten. It's just too good to give up even though it's so unhealthy.

Sometimes you need to have a little bacon :-) Would love for you to come and link up at the first The Yuck Stops Here! link up.

I agree sometimes you need a little bacon. The Hardworking Husband would say you need bacon every day. I don't agree with that thought. Thanks for stopping by.
