Serves: 6  Prep Time:  15 minutes  Cook time:  1 hour 10 minutes

For the meatloaf:

1 lb       ground beef

1/2 lb   ground veal

1/2  lb ground pork

2 T water

1                                    egg, bean

1 clove                                    garlic, chopped

½ c                                    bread crumbs

2 T                                    Worcestershire sauce

¾ c                                    chili sauce (you can use ketchup too)

½ c                                    onions, finely chopped

½ c                                    mushrooms, finely chopped

8 strips cooked bacon roughly chopped

6 oz cubed sharp cheddar cheese

½ c                                    canned fried onion strips


for the topping:

1/4 cup ketcup

2 T mustard

1 T mayonnaise

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Place all the ingredients for the meatloaf in a large mixing bowl.  Using your hands, mix the ingredients gently until well combined being sure not to overhandle it, you don’t want to end up with tough meatloaf!

Place the meat into a baking dish and shape into a loaf.  Some people place the meatloaf on top of sliced bread to catch all the grease but I look at that as a waste of bread!  I mean that’s a sandwich or two for the kids right?

In a small bowl mix the ketchup, mustard and mayo.  Spoon it out on top of the meatloaf.  This will create a yummy crust on top, and you like this on your bacon cheeseburger right?

Bake at 375 for an hour and 10 minutes then allow to rest on the counter for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. That is a great meatloaf!

    As your question as to where to find jerusalem artichoke, I found them at one particular farmer market in Toronto. If you are interested in trying them, look for farmer markets and maybe Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.

  2. I’m adding stuff to my grocery list-this sounds great!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I admit it: I love meatloaf. I don’t very often make it…but I love it. There — my secret is out! ;)

    This looks interesting. I might have to give it a go in our house – the mayo sounds strange but it makes sense. I do like a crusty burger!

    Wow, my kids loved this. I ate it cold the next day on a bagel and it was very good. I think I am going to make one over the holidays.

  5. Thanks so much for your recipe. For years, I’ve been laying bacon over the top of my meatloaf and it’s delicious. But it never occurred to me to include cheese, and that sounds even better. I’m anxious to try your recipe. Thanx Submit CUTE or FUNNY photos and tell friends to vote for them. No entry fee.
