It's a bacon burger without the bun!!

I tried a recipe tonight that has made it's way through the local Nest Board that I'm on.

We love beef, we love bacon, what's not to love about this meal?

I totally recommend you try this - but I would add some more bread crumbs, it was a little to moist to slice properly for meatloaf. Otherwise it was delicious and great and a wonderful treat. Oh and I did cut down the amount of bacon and just used 4 slices cooked and crumbled.

No pictures, so I thought I'd blog it right away.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
1 Pound(s) ground beef
10 Slice(s) cooked and crumbled bacon (used 4 slices)
8 Ounce(s) package grated cheddar cheese (only used about 4 oz.)
2 lightly beaten egg
1/4 Cup(s) toasted bread crumbs
1/4 Cup(s) mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon(s) Worcestershire sauce
1/4 Teaspoon(s) salt (omitted, didn't need with the cheese and bacon)
1/4 Teaspoon(s) black pepper
1/3 Cup(s) ketchup (I just put in 1 T and then drizzled some on top )
2 Tablespoon(s) mustard (did 1 T in, and a pattern squirt on top)
3 Ounce(s) French fried onions (omitted, didn't have)

Preheat oven to 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 loaf pan, or shape into a loaf and place on a rack in a broiler pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over loaf. Bake 40 minutes. Top with French fried onions; bake another 10-15 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink. *Mine went closer to 60 minutes.
