Snaz up your boring meatloaf with bacon and cheddar cheese.

Mini Bacon-Cheese Meatloaves

I originally shared this recipe back in 2013. It’s been a family favorite ever since, but, there’s been a few minor changes to the recipe. Still just as delicious, but, a a little different. Just a smidgen.

With a smidgen of a change, why not share the results, right? Smidgen are important too. 😉

Ingredients Needed:

  • Ground beef
  • Bacon
  • Egg
  • Bread crumbs
  • Milk
  • Ketchup
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Can I use turkey instead? Yes. You can use ground turkey and/or turkey bacon for this recipe. However, watch your cooking time! With turkey, your cooking time may need to be reduced.

Ketchup Hint: It’s easy to make homemade.

How to Make:

  • First, mix your ingredients for the meatloaf. This will be all the ingredients, except the bacon. Your mixture should be firm, but, not too dry. Adjust bread crumbs/milk lightly to form mixture to your liking.
  • Form the meat mixture into 4 equal size mini loafs. Take a piece of bacon and wrap it around the loaf. If needed, you can use a toothpick to keep the bacon in place. Simply remove it before eating.
  • Drizzle the tops with additional ketchup. The amount is up to you. If you like ketchup, add a bunch, if not, add a smaller amount.
  • Place loaves on a prepared baking sheet and bake.
  • Important to Note: Baking time may vary, depending on the size/thickness of your loaves. Before eating, make sure the internal temperature is at least 160 degrees.
