Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. When cool, crumble into a large bowl.
  3. Mix ketchup and mustard in a bowl.
  4. Thoroughly combine 1/4 the ketchup mixture, ground chuck, Cheddar cheese, eggs, bread crumbs, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper with crumbled bacon in bowl; pat the mixture into a 5x9-inch loaf pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture evenly over top of meatloaf.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the meatloaf is no longer pink inside, about 45 minutes. Spread French-fried onions over the top of the loaf and return to oven until onions are browned and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 10 to 15 more minutes.

First try on this one. After cooking the full hour, we let it cook a bit and "turned" it out on to a plate. While the flavor was good it was "mush. It did not hold together at all. If I tried it...

Try adding 2 slices of bread to the bottom of the baking dish. This will absorb any extra grease from the meat. Once you remove the meatloaf from the cooking pan (dish) cut off the grease soake...

Very good! I realized that I did not get the French-fried onions @ the store (doh!), so I just chopped some onion and added it to the meat mixture. I had more than 1 pound of beef (more like 1-3...
