Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

bacon meatloaf recipes

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf is one of those recipes we go crazy for here at The Chic. It’s a combination of two delicious dishes, classic cheeseburgers and meatloaf! The fact that it’s draped in lots of bacon, just makes us so happy! 

how to make a delicious meatloaf

The fun thing about meatloaf is that you get to just dump everything into a large bowl and mix it all together with your hands. Get the kids involved! (Just make sure you wash up really well with soap and warm water!)

Divide the mixture by half and form half of it into a long loaf on a baking sheet, lined with aluminum foil. Flatten it out a bit and sprinkle with lots of cheese. Top the cheese with the remaining meat mixture and seal of the edges, making a large meatloaf. Drape with the bacon slices, tucking the ends underneath the loaf. 

meatloaf step by step

Bake in a 375ºF oven for about 50 minutes. Then place it under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the bacon slices on top.

    The flavor is great and all. But what I seemed to havenotice is that my bacon cheeseburger meatloaf didn’t come out like the picture. The outside yeah, but inside no. Your photo looks juicy whereas mine it seems like all the juices were excreted from the meat and the meatloaf layed in its pool of juices. I did take the juices and added onto my burger slice. But still would’ve been better if I had cut into it and the meatloaf didn’t look so dry. Any advice on how to prevent all the juices from leaving the meatloaf as it cooks?

      Hello Kristy, I’m sorry to hear that your meatloaf was dry and not as pictured here. What kind of ground meat did you use? What was the ratio of fat per meat? Sometimes if you use a leaner ground meat, it tends to dry out during baking because there is less fat in it to keep it juicy and moist. ~Jonathan

    Yeah that could be the reason. I didn’t think it would make much of a difference :[. I used 1lb of lean ground beef an 1lb of I guess the regular ground beef. And mixed them together. Next time I’ll try to stick with the regular kind. Nonetheless it did taste great and all :]. Thank you for getting back to me

      You’d be surprised, that little bit of extra fat really keeps the loaf moist! I hope you give it a try soon. Be sure to let me know how the second venture goes! ~Jonathan

      Hi Heather,

      Turkey meatloaf will work just fine (though it can dry out a bit more than beef so be warned) I would do 2 lbs for a family of four just to be safe. Also, leftover meatloaf is delicious! 😉 Rachel

    Loved this! I cooked mine a tad longer because I have a phobia of undercooked meatlaofs ? and it was very juicy!! My picky 6 yr old even ate it up! Thanks

      I’m not sure Stacy but between the cheese, beef and bacon this definitely isn’t a low cal dish. It’s a great dish if you’re doing a high protein high fat diet like Adkins but if low calories is your goal I’d go to one of our healthier options.
