Samantha asked for my meatloaf recipe, so I figured I would post it in case someone else wanted to try it out. :o) The Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf turned out very well, and my husband loved it! Of course, he loves meatloaf period, so it's not hard to please him.
I did make a few changes from this recipe, though. *click the link for the recipe* I only used 5 slices of bacon, added an extra 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs, decreased the amount of mustard, and halved the cheddar (I didn't have 8 oz). I also lined the bottom of the loaf pan with bread slices.
Next time, I will also decrease the mayo; I think if I do that, I won't have to add so much of the breadcrumbs. Oh, and I think it only needs one egg. I'm also considering using some BBQ sauce as one reviewer mentioned. If anyone tries it, let me know how it turns out! :o)
The only other meatloaf recipe I use is the one my mom gave me -- Easy Pleazy Meatloaves. hehehe, the name is one of my favorite parts! :P I'm a weirdo like that. Anyway, this is a great recipe because it's... well, easy, for one thing. And for another, most people who don't like meatloaf do like this one.
I made this recipe for company (before I knew the husband didn't like meatloaf!), and he actually told his wife to get this recipe from me! So, see? If you think you don't like meatloaf, try this one; you might be surprised. :o)
