    Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 large yellow onion, cut into 2-inch pieces
    8 ounces button mushrooms, halved
    2 cloves garlic
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
    4 strips center-cut bacon, divided
    5 tablespoons ketchup, divided
    1/4 cup dill pickle relish
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 large egg, lightly beaten
    3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Tip)
    2 pounds lean (90% or leaner) ground beef
    1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


    1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray (or see Loaf Pan Variation).

    2. Pulse onion, mushrooms and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. (Or finely chop them with a knife.)
    3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.

    4. Finely chop 2 slices bacon and add to the bowl with the vegetables. Add 3 tablespoons ketchup, relish and Worcestershire; stir to combine.

    5. Stir in egg and breadcrumbs.

    6. Add ground beef and with clean hands gently knead the vegetable mixture into the meat; do not overmix.

    7. Pat the meat mixture into a loaf shape (about 12 by 5 inches) on the prepared baking sheet.

    8. Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup on top. Sprinkle cheese down the middle and place the remaining 2 slices of bacon on each side of the cheese.

    9. Bake the meatloaf until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165F, about 45 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
