Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe

A Cheeseburger Meatloaf is basically a fun and delicious way for your family to enjoy the old run of the mill meatloaf in a whole new way. I don’t know if this qualifies as genuine Cajun cooking, but Cajuns sure do like it, I guarantee!

Ingredients for Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Fresh Ground Beef

Fresh Ground Beef

1 1/2 pounds ground round beef
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 cups Cajun Trinity (or a bag of frozen Seasoning Blend)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons chopped dried or fresh parsley
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 eggs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Salt and Tony’s Creole Seasoning
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 – 1 cup bacon (6-8 slices), cooked and crumbled

Frozen seasoning blend

Frozen seasoning blend

Also need a large baking sheet, wax paper and canola oil spray.

Preheat oven on 350 degrees.

Cook the bacon strips.  Remove to several paper towels to blot off excess oil.

In the bacon drippings, saute the Cajun Trinity until well cooked.  If desired to hide from your children or those that don’t like the sight of onions, chop well in a food processor.

In a large mixing bowl, combine ground meat, seasonings, bread crumbs and eggs.  Blend together well with your clean hands.

Using a baking sheet either 13 x 9 or a 15 x 10, place a sheet of wax paper over the pan.

Place the meatloaf mixture on the pan and begin to spread out evenly and flat like making a pizza dough or a jelly roll cake.

Sprinkle the crumbled bacon all over and spread out shredded cheddar cheese.

At this time, add other ingredients as desired like caramelized onions or sliced mushrooms.

From one end, begin to roll up sealing off the ends as you go.  You may have to gradually remove the wax paper.

Place the loaf on a greased baking sheet with the seal side down.  Make sure the ends are meshed together good so the cheese doesn’t unnecessarily ooze out.

Bake for 1 hour or until the Cheeseburger Meatloaf reaches an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees.  It’s always a good idea to have a meat thermometer for cooking.

Serving Suggestions for Bacon Cheeseburger Meat Loaf

Serve with Mashed Potatoes,  Baked Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese or Steamed Broccoli.

Leftovers are wonderful to have a Cheeseburger Meatloaf sandwich.  Oh this is making me hungry!
