Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

bacon cheeseburger meatloaf (sweetandsavoryfood.com)

I used to HATE meatloaf growing up.  I'm not sure why, heck I probably just said that to irritate my mom.  But, now I really like it.  Obviously, I missed out on many, many years of good meatloaf.

Each time I make it now, I change up the ingredients.  Last week it was this Bacon Cheeseburger version.  All the elements of a good burger thrown into a loaf pan.  I didn't have any pickles on hand otherwise those would have gone in as well!  A ketchup glaze was added for good measure.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

1 lb. ground chuck
2 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
1/2 c. crushed tortilla chips
1 egg
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. pepper
3 T. dijon mustard
3 T. ketchup, plus an additional for glaze
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

In a large bowl mix all ingredients until just combined, do not over mix.  Place in a greased loaf pan, leaving a little room on the sides of the pan.  Cover with foil, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Remove foil, spread ketchup on top and bake for another 15 minutes uncovered.

We served this with fresh Iowa sweet corn.  Can't beat this as a summer meal.  What is your go to summer meal?
