Giant Burger (A Round Meatloaf)

"My note beside this in my recipe book is "surprisingly good". The combinations of ingredients sounds strange, but they do work well together. A low-carbohydrate main course."

  1. I doubled this because 1 1/2 pounds didnt look very big and I wanted to have leftovers. Spread the cream cheese mixture mostly in the middle and tried not to get close to the edges of the ground round. Pinching together the layers was easier and I didnt seem to have a lot of cream cheese mixture coming out. I used grainy mustard and it worked well, just right with the zip of the horseradish. The only thing I would like to have tasted was some flavor in the ground round, maybe onion and garlic or herbs.
  2. A great tasting recipe that is easy to make. If you are not a horseradish fan like myself, substitute it with something else that you like or leave it out completely.
  3. This was, all in all, a really good recipe. My only problem, was that it shrank up so much, and I had a very hard time pinching the edges together. In the end, I had two "hamburgers" with the sauce in between. The total size was about 6" round and fed my family of 3 (including myself). Still good though, and will probably make it again.
  4. This was so easy to make. I had some left over and was going to make it for my husband for lunch the next day but when I looked in the frig I realized he'd gotten up during the night and finished it. He really liked it. Thanks for sharing yor recipe.


I work as a part-time nurse in our city's burn unit. In my spare time, I really enjoy browsing cookbooks, cooking magazines, and the web for recipes. I am always looking for new ways to combine common ingredients to mix things up a bit. I try to avoid recipes that call for bizarre or hard-to-get ingredients or require a special kitchen widget I will only use once. If someone were to give me something unusual, I certainly would give it a try! However, my husband and I are adventurous diners and are always willing to try something new at least twice (in case there was a problem the first time!) We enjoy everything from German to Japanese; we want to try Vietnamese next. My husband and I own a Gold Wing motorcycle and love to travel in the warmer months. We also have three dogs: Roxy, who is a rather large (42 lb.) fox terrier cross (shown above, with me!), Shadow, who is pure-bred reverse-brindle boxer, and Maggie, a brindle boxer. They love it when "Mom" cooks because they know something yummy inevitably hits the floor!
