Bacon Wrapped Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
What you'll need:
**1 lb ground beef
**12 slices bacon (7 cooked and crumbled; 5 [raw] for later in the recipe)
**1 (8-ounce) package finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
**2 large eggs, lightly beaten
**1/4 cup bread crumbs
**1/4 cup sour cream (you could use mayo, but we all know how I feel about THAT - seriously, I'm dry heaving just thinking about it)
**3 T Worcestershire sauce (2 T and then 1T)
**1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
**1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
**1 T minced onion
**1/2 cup ketchup (break into 1/4 cup servings for recipe purposes)
**3 T prepared mustard (2T and then 1T)
**1 can French fried onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In large bowl, combine the ground beef and next 11 ingredients, mixing well.
In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce
Press meat mixture into a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan, or shape into loaf in an 8 by 8" dish. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over the meatloaf.
Use remaining 5 strips of bacon to drape over loaf in dish. Bake for 55 minutes.
Upon removal at 55 min., top with half of French fried onions and turn oven to broil on high to make bacon crispy. Leave meatloaf in for approx. 3-4 min.
Take out, then top with remaining French's fried onions and put back in oven on 350 for 5-7 min.
Let meatloaf stand for 5-10 minutes prior to serving and um, it. is. delicious!
**SIDENOTE: I made an extra ketchup mixture for dipping/ coating when eating and it was amazing!
Yum, yum, yummmmmm!!!!
