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!

1 lb. bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled and divided
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef sirloin

1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 c. catsup
1/4 t. hot pepper sauce

Set aside 1/2 cup bacon for topping. Combine remaining bacon, ground beef, cheese, eggs, crumbs, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl; set aside.


Mix together catsup, hot sauce and mustard; set aside 3 tablespoons of mixture. Add remaining catsup misture to beef mixture; blend well.
