If you don’t want to bother with the latticed bacon, just lay strips across the top.

  • 6-8 servings



  • 2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire or steak sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons ketchup (use 1 tablespoon if using steak sauce)
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, cut into 1/4-1/2-inch cubes
  • 8-10 slices bacon (I make a lattice with 8 slices of bacon to top the meatloaf—4 across, 4 down. You can use less bacon if you don’t want to get fancy, but the loaf should be topped with bacon.)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except the bacon. Form into a loaf shape.
  • Top with either a fancy bacon lattice or lay strips across the top. Make sure to tuck the bacon under the bottom of the meatloaf.
  • Place in an oblong pan (I used 7x11 inches with a rack) and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until internal temperature is 160 degrees F.
