My husband LOVES burgers. It doesn’t matter if we go to the local fast food joint or the fanciest restaurant in town, if there is a burger on the menu- he orders it! So how do I put a healthy spin on that I hear you ask? Well, ladies and gentlemen, I bring to you…Bacon cheeseburger meatloaf!

This incredibly delicious and simple recipe includes all the flavors of a great American burger (including the mustard and pickles) AND takes less than 15 minutes to prep before you pop it in the oven. Perfect!

Although I used ground beef for this particular recipe, you could easily substitute it for lean ground turkey to keep this dish on the lighter side. Plus I used turkey bacon too because, well I wanted it somewhat healthy and bacon is EVERYTHING! Household sample ingredients such as ketchup, pickle relish, and cheddar cheese gives it the flavor of a cheeseburger while at the same time keeping it moist. Want more bold flavor? Swap in sharp cheddar cheese or provolone and double the garlic.

Make this simple cheeseburger meatloaf recipe to feed a hungry family or try it for your next meal prep. You could easily bake it in muffin trays for kids lunchboxes or freeze individual slices for an easy weeknight dinner any time!

Recipe Notes

I served this meatloaf just as it is with a side salad. But you could easily serve it with steamed greens or roasted sweet potato fries! Better yet, make it a "mans meal" by serving it as an open-faced sandwich!
