My husband's favorite. Pretty easy to make. Sometimes I add BBQ sauce into the mix before baking.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon oregano
- 3 slices bacon, cut in half
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Combine all ingredients except bacon in a bowl- I just use clean hands to do this.
- Form into a loaf in a loaf pan
- Top with bacon
- Bake for 1 hour
This was really great the night I made it. The leftovers were very dense and dry but did make tasty meatloaf sandwiches slathered with ketchup for moisture!
This was a quick, easy and very flavorful dish! I prepared it the night before (due to busy schedule) and popped it in the oven when I got home from work, before little league games, and made some mashed potatoes. It was great! I think next time I will double or triple the recipe and add some chopped jalapeno peppers to it for extra spice. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
I felt a little guilty serving this to my husband, because of the pool of grease that was bubbling all around the meat in the pan when I took it out of the oven ... but the flavors were delicious, and we both really enjoyed it, especially with a slather of barbecue sauce on the top. I drained and discarded the grease as soon as I took it out of the oven, and I would recommend doing so. Otherwise, your meatloaf will re-absorb all that unnecessary fat, and it really turns to mush. Served with oven browned potatoes. Yummy!
