Make Ahead and Storage

Can be assembled a day in advance and baked just before serving. Leftovers will keep refrigerated for 4 to 5 days. Reheat in microwave.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe Tips

  • The dill pickles are chopped finely and add a nice flavor, but they can be left out if you don’t like pickles.
  • The mayonnasie helps keep the meatloaf moist but does not add a discernible flavor.
  • If you want this meatloaf spicy, double the amount of crushed red pepper flakes.
  • For a tender and not tough meatloaf, don’t overmix the ingredients. Just gently combine them and then shape them into a loaf.
  • Ground chuck makes really tender and juicy meatloaf because it has a higher fat content than other ground beef. There will be a fair amount of grease at the bottom of the pan after you bake it but you can easily dab it up with paper towels.

  1. This was a delicious meatloaf, and especially tasty with the cheddar cheese cubes melted inside it. I wasn’t sure why I needed to bake it in a 9×13 pan with foil and non-stick spray, but after it was finished I could see that was a good idea. Another excellent meatloaf I’ve tried from this site, and one that I’ll be making again.
