This is a great recipe for kids and picky eaters!! I love this meatloaf….
1 pound ground chuck
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 (8 ounce) package of Cheddar grated
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 C bread crumbs, toasted
1/4 C mayonnaise
1TBS Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 C ketchup
2TBS prepared mustard
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck and next 8 ingredients, mixing well.
In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and mustard. Stir 1/4 cup ketchup mixture into meat mixture reserving remaining ketchup mixture.
Press meat mixture into a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan, or shape into a loaf and place on a rack in a broiler pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over loaf. Bake 55 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
You can add French fried onions to this, 1 (3 ounce can) and after you bake for 40 minutes sprinkle the onions on top and bake for another 10- 15 minutes. I use a Colby-Jack cheese shred instead of cheddar and you can mix up the mustard, I sometimes use brown spicy mustard instead of plain yellow mustard…. To cook this, because it gives off a lot of grease, I use the broiler pan. It is the one with the slits on it so the grease drips down into the bottom pan. **** You will want to make a larger meatloaf than it makes because your family will LOVE this! To do this, I usually use 1 pound of ground pork as well as 1 pound of ground beef. The ground pork is to keep it from drying out when you cook the larger meatloaf. ****
