Cheesy Bacon Meatloaf

I hate meatloaf. Let me just get that out there now. I've had many, many people tell me how much I'll like "their" meatloaf. But no. I really just don't like meatloaf. Of course, the kids and the husband all love it. I think the problem is that I detest ketchup. I'm not much of a condiment person. Although sometimes, you have to give it to what everyone else wants. I decided to make a compromise. That's when the Cheesy Bacon Meatloaf was born.

What you'll need:

1 lb ground beef (lean)
3/4 c cheese, shredded
6 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 eggs
1/4 c onion, diced finely
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350.
Dice the onion and shred the cheese

Cook the bacon and chop finely, or crumble

Mix cheese, bacon, eggs, ground beef, and onion in a large bowl. Add a few shakes of salt and pepper. Mix well and press into loaf pan.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until no longer pink. 

No meatloaf is complete without mashed potatoes!

The first time I made this, I added breadcrumbs as you normally would with meatloaf. The second time, I just totally spaced it. The meatloaf stayed together just fine. It was a little crumbly when we cut it, but still great.

I don't like meatloaf in general unless it's good meatloaf. And I don't know if something is good meatloaf until I try it. So I've tried a lot of bad meatloaves(?) in my time. But I don't think anyone can go wrong with anything that has cheese in it.
