Top Review by Chef Valbowski

Oh yeah! I have a great feeling that this will be not only tasty, but very interesting with all of those flavors- and different from all the same old meat loaf types. My only concern is that it calls for fat free or extremely lean ground beef. I do not believe that I will go that lean on the beef. Like I said, looks great and tasty. Will add more thoughts to this review when I actually make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This recipe is awesome, and probably one of our favorites. To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or about 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Now take out a medium sized cooking skillet, and fry up your hickory smoked pepper bacon until it is a crisp golden brown color. Once the bacon is cooked, remove it from your skillet, and place it on plate covered with paper towels, so some of the grease can be soaked away from it. With regard to the baking grease in the skillet, save it all, and use it to fry the onion and mushrooms, you will want to saute them to the point that they are tender and soft, and then remove them from the heat.
  3. Next up take a large mixing bowl, and add in your lean ground beef steak, whole egg, and the evaporated milk. Mix these contents together very well, and once done, add in the sauteed onion and mushrooms. Next add in about half of the Swiss cheese, and all but one single spoonful of the bacon.
  4. Next up add in the garlic croutons, and keep mixing. Your aim is to manually mix it together using your clean bare hands, soaking up all of the ingredients with the meat, evenly distributing all of the seasonings.
  5. Once you have your beautiful loaf shaped to an oval, place it in a well greased baking pan. You will want to bake your meatloaf for one full hour.
  6. Once it's done, sprinkle on the rest of the Swiss cheese and fried bacon, and return it to the oven until the cheese is melted, which should be three to five minutes.
  7. Serve it warm, with steamed veggies, and a Hefeweizen beer with a slice of lemon. The beer and lemon will compliment the cheese and bacon very well.
