Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

My husband loves me. He loves that the theme for the Diner News this month is "Man Food." He has been served some amazingly delicious foods. You know the favorites among the guys--bacon, beer, beef, hot sauce, and even whiskey. Yep, we got 'em. I am sharing this incredibly tasty meatloaf. A Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf made with a blend of beef and pork that holds all the flavors of your favorite cheeseburger. Everyone in the family will love it.

I chose to make a freeform meatloaf baked on a rimmed cookie sheet. That way, more bacon can be added to the outside. Yum.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

1 1/2 lb ground beef and pork blend
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, cubed
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup low sugar ketchup (I use Heinz)
2 eggs
2 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp Wright’s  liquid smoke
1 tsp onion powder
6-8 slices of bacon

In a large bowl, combine ground meat and all remaining   ingredients except bacon. Form into a freeform loaf. Wrap the loaf with bacon, crisscross weaving. Place  the loaf on a rack over a baking dish. Tuck ends of bacon under the meat. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes.

And believe it or not, that is not even all! You really need to order the Diner News if you haven't yet. Just go here.

If you don't like beer or whiskey, don't fret. Cooking and marinating with beer gives a unique flavor, nothing like drinking from a bottle. Same goes with the whiskey. I purchased a tiny airline sized bottle of Jack Daniels for these recipes, and I still have some left. The impact on flavor just can't be compared to anything else. Hope you try some of these!
