Mini Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe

Pretty much everyone loves meatloaf. But the same old same old can get pretty boring. I like to give it a few updates to make it more appealing. The individual portion sizes are easy to serve and fun to eat. The addition of cheese, bacon and condiments gives this family staple a tasty update.


  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 5 cheese sticks
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp. mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 7-8 –pieces of bacon (or about ¼ to ½ cup of precooked bacon pieces)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup plain bread crumbs



If using uncooked bacon, fry in a large non-stick pan until just beginning to crisp. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except cheese sticks, until thoroughly mixed. Separate your ground beef mixture into 5-6 loaves. Press a cheese stick into bottom of loaf, work to cover cheese completely with ground beef, forming a football shape.

Grab a rectangular bread pan and line with plain bread crumbs (this helps to absorb a lot of the fat when cooking). Place meat loaves on top of bread. Brush tops with additional ketchup. Cover with saran wrap and then aluminum foil, store in freezer until the morning of the day you choose to cook.

Cooking Directions:

Place pan in oven preheated to 350° for 45 minutes.

Serve with your favorite potatoes and a vegetable to finish off the meal.
