Don't let your meat loaf!

I don't particularly care for meatloaf, but Paula Deen talked me into this, and I've never turned back. Neither have my arteries.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 (8-ounce) package sharp Cheddar, grated
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs, toasted
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 (3-ounce) can French fried onions
Combine the first nine ingredients and go to town mixing them all together (again, don't be a sissy - do this by hand). A word of advice - pre-grease your loaf pan before doing this, so you don't have to worry about washing your hands to pick up the cooking spray after you've been elbow deep in meat. Also, if you cook up your bacon the night before, this is ridiculously easy to make.

Form into a standard size loaf pan (if you don't have one, just use any oven-safe pan and shape your meat mixture into a loaf). Take the ketchup & mustard, mix them together, and slather it onto the meatloaf. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, then remove from the oven and add your French fried onions and bake for another 15 minutes or so, or until the internal temp reaches 160.

Yes, it's a little greasy. But you know what else it is? A whole lot of awesome.
I think Wilco should remix one of their songs just for Paula Deen and call it, "I Am Trying To Stop Your Heart."

One of the things that makes me laugh is to hear Paula Deen say, "Honey, I'm your cook not your doctor."
