Bacon Cheeseburger Loaf


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • Ad
  • 1 large sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped dill pickle
  • 2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until limp and some of the fat is rendered, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the bacon from the skillet; drain on paper towel and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together meat, oats, 1/2 cup cheese, onion, dressing, dill pickle, mustard, salt, pepper, and egg. Pat mixture into a shallow 2-quart baking pan. Spread top of loaf with ketchup; lay bacon strips over ketchup.

Bake until loaf is firm and bacon is crisp, 45 to 50 minutes. Sprinkle loaf with remaining 1/2 cup cheese during last 5 minutes of baking.


Let meatloaf stand in the baking dish for 10 minutes before serving.
