COOK TIME

Say hello to Your Family's Favorite Meatloaf recipe! Unlike other meatloaves that are sort of dry and tasteless, this one is super juicy and packed with flavor inside and out. And the combo of the bacon and the glaze makes this truly irresistible.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 pounds ground chuck
  • 1 1/2 cups finely crushed butter-flavored crackers
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup ketchup, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, cracker crumbs, onion, 1/2 cup ketchup, the eggs, salt, and pepper; mix well. Form meat mixture into a loaf on baking sheet. Lay bacon over top of meatloaf.
  3. Bake 1 hour.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mustard, brown sugar, and remaining 1/4 cup ketchup; mix well. Spread evenly over top of meatloaf. Return to oven and bake 15 more minutes, or until no longer pink in center.

Four stars only because I've yet to try this version of a family favorite. The addition of bacon is sure to earn it a 5 star rating! Now I know what's for dinner tonight. As always another simple but delicious recipe using ingredients I almost always have on hand! The addition of the crushed buttery crackers sounds great, too. Do any readers recall the 'old days' when meatloaf was made with uncooked oats?

We love meatloaf and always willing to try a new recipe. This one has all the elements to make is extra special. I have used the glaze before but not with the addition of the bacon. Also, the onion is good but we prefer to grate it instead of chopping. You get all the flavor but not the crunch.

Say goodbye to boring hot dogs and hello to ones that are deli-delicious! Our Reuben Dogs are a mashup between a favorite deli sandwich (the Reuben!) and perfectly-cooked hot dogs.
