Cheesy Beef & Bacon Burger Meatloaf
Another winner from the Gooseberry Patch cookbook. There are just so many wonderful recipes and I can't wait to try them.
We all love meatloaf and I've actually posted quite a few variations here on the blog, but I think meatloaf is one of those dishes that you can't ever go wrong with and the amount of variations are unlimited.
This one is like taking a bite of a Cheeseburger with Bacon...SO good!
