I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Everything you love about a bacon cheeseburger - except in meatloaf form. Thank you @thepoof for today's viewer recipe.

Serves about 5-6



  • 1/2 pound bacon, diced up
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup diced dill pickles

  • 6 slices American cheese


  • 1/3 cup western chili sauce, like Heinz
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  4. Put in remaining meatloaf ingredients, and mix really well to combine
  5. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray, and add half the meatloaf mixture, pat down so it’s even, layer cheese on top then add remaining mix – flatten out and bake 45 minutes
  6. Combine the sauce ingredients with remaining tablespoon of mustard, and spoon over the top
  7. Bake an additional 15-20 or until 160 degrees
  8. Remove, let cool slightly before serving
