Can you really go wrong with a cheese-stuffed meatloaf? I think not. Growing up, my mom would always cover the top of her meatloaf with a nice glaze of ketchup, so the tradition just had to continue! During the baking process, the ketchup gets all sorts of gooey and caramelized and is so dang good. It’s the perfect topping for this Cheeseburger Meatloaf!

Just like everything else that is right in this world, meatloaf is best served with some mashed potatoes. These Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes are perfect companion, if you ask me. Grab a fork and get a perfect bite full of meatloaf and mashed taters. Your tastebuds will thank me later. If you by chance have any leftovers of this meatloaf, it makes great chili! I crumbled my leftovers, tossed them in a crockpot with all my chili ingredients and left it to simmer low and slow. It was a perfect, flavor-loaded chili!

Description

Cheeseburger Meatloaf is a meatloaf-lover’s dream come true! Take one bite and your tastebuds will instantly take you to all the wonderful, nostalgic flavors of a cheeseburger. This cheddar cheese stuffed meatloaf is seasoned perfectly with a ketchup and mustard duo to take a classic meatloaf to a whole other level.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds ground hamburger
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup ketchup

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, gently mix together the hamburger, onion, eggs, bread crumbs, seasoned salt, Worcestershire sauce and yellow mustard until just combined, being careful to not over mix and make the meatloaf dense. Your hands work best for this.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Diving the meatloaf mixture in half and place half on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Gently flatten and form the bottom half of the meatloaf into a roughly 11×4 rectangle. Carefully spread the cheddar cheese on top of the first meatloaf layer, leaving 1/2 inch of the meatloaf edges exposed on all sides of the cheese layer.
  3. Place the second half of the meatloaf mixture directly on top of the cheddar cheese and carefully flatten and shape it to be a match to the bottom layer. Pinch and  smooth all sides of the meatloaf to seal the cheese inside. Evenly top the meatloaf with the ketchup.
  4. Bake for 50 minutes – 1 hour, or until a thermometer inserted into the middle reads 160 degrees. Let the meatloaf sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

  • I used 85% lean hamburger for this recipe. 93% can be used, but keep in mind that it may dry out quicker.
