Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Servings 8


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2/3 cup diced onion
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into long, thin pieces
  • 2 to 3 jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 5 slices bacon, cut in half


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together.
  • Shape half the ground beef mixture into a 9x5-inch rectangle on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place the cream cheese and jalapenos down the middle.
  • Cover the cream cheese and jalapenos with the remaining meat mixture, pressing along the edges to completely seal the inside.
  • Brush the tops and the sides of the meatloaf with the ketchup.
    Place the bacon slices side by side on top of the meatloaf.
  • Bake for 60 to 70 minutes.
    Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.


The cream cheese should be cold. This will help prevent it from melting and oozing out.
