Hello! and welcome to our site. We are a husband and wife duo who likes to make food and experiment with new recipes. We decided we needed to take love for food and share it with our friends. We hope you enjoy our twist on some of our favorite recipes.
For us, the Sunday Routine is pretty much that, routine. We talk about making a meal plan for the week and sometimes we do and sometimes we don't. This week we didn't. Monday midday texts consist of asking each other what do we want for supper and I decide that we should have something with ground beef...why, who knows. And if you recall, we bought a lot of ground beef and what else do with ground beef is make....meatloaf! But of course, not just regular meatloaf, that would be boring. This time, I think I will make a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf with a special burger sauce. I had errands to run afterwork so the husband offered to make the meatloaf. I said, great. Next thing I know is he texts me saying, he's never made meatloaf. Ok, let's have it tomorrow so I can do it. Great idea. So here we are.
What I love about this recipe is that we were recently at the 5-8 Club Tavern in Minneapolis and I was inspired by the original Juicy Lucy. I suppose you could say that I basically made Juicy Lucy's in the oven. But of course there's always a twist. For those that don't know what a Juicy Lucy is, it's a cheese-stuffed Hamburger.
Overall, I think this recipe turned out great. I think the only thing I would change is to make more.
1 lb ground beef
6 slices of bacon
1 cup bread cubes(I used Gluten Free cubes)
1/2 Cup Almond Milk
2 Tbsp. Ketchup
1 Tbsp. Mustard
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
1/4 cup chopped onion
8 pickle slices
1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, separated into 4 serving
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. In a mixing bowl, combine breadcrumbs, egg and milk. Then combine the ketchup, onion, mustard and worcestershire. Add ground beef and mix with hands until just combine.
In the mixing bowl, score beef into 4 sections. Half each section and arrange on baking sheet into 4 half loaves. When making the loaves, make a little bowl in the middle to hold the pickles and cheese. Add 2 slices pickles and 1/4 cup cheese to each loaf boat.
With the remaining beef, separate again and form the tops of the loaf boats. Make sure to smooth the edges so the cheese doesn't leak out. Cut the Bacon strips in half and lay 3 strips on each meatloaf. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
As I put the meatloaf into the oven, I made this awesome burger sauce for when it's done!
After your hour timer is up, make sure meat is cooked through and bacon is done. Because of the cheese inside, let rest for about 10 minutes.
Serve and Enjoy!
