Can these be cooked in a skillet or on the grill?

I've done a recipe similar to this in my cast iron pan. I believe it would work both ways. I prefer the stovetop especially when using cast iron.

Yes, they can be cooked in a skillet or on a grill. :)

The bacon cooks thru in that time frame????

Yes, if you chop the bacon into small pieces and cook the meatloaf cakes until they're well-done, the bacon will be cooked through. However, you can also pre-cook the bacon (or cook it entirely) before chopping and adding it to the meatloaf cakes. Enjoy!

Wait a minute, Test Kitchen! You say "until no pink remains." That is NO WAY cooked "until they're well-done" so, NO, the bacon doesn't cook done on the recipe time. But you say it does and then say "if cooked until they're well-done." Big difference!

These were delicious!! Easy peasy and a great comfort food. Great served on a roll for a sandwich also! Only thing is someone said it's better then my meatloaf o( Thank you!!


What are panko bread crumbs? Can I use any kind of bread crumbs?

These are Japanese bread crumbs. They are found in the international food section at the grocery. Panko breadcrumbs will give a different texture. I will try it first as the recipe suggests,

Yss you can use regular bread crumbs Panko is Japenese bread crumbs a little bit lighter than our bread crumbs but your recipe will turn out just fine with either regular or Italian bread crumbs Panko just costs more than the other 2 ...Been cooking and baking for over 50 years

This sounds great,,, will try soon.
