Stuffed Meatloaf

This is my twist on my Mom’s meatloaf. Bacon, mushrooms and cheddar are a nice surprise in the center of this meatloaf. Delicious!


2 Lbs Ground Beef

Adjust amounts to number of People Served. This is at least 6.

½ Cup Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
2 Lrg Eggs
1 Med Onion, Diced
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
¼ Cup Prepared BBQ Sauce
1 Dash Worcestershire Sauce
Salt, Pepper & Spices to Taste
1 Box Precooked Bacon
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Jar Mushrooms, stems and pieces
1 Can Tomato Soup


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, garlic, BBQ sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and spices.

Place half of the mixture on waxed paper. Shape into a rectangle, about the size of a bread pan in length and width. Put into baking dish (13×9 is fine). Top with bacon, mushrooms and shredded cheese.

Shape the remaining meat mixture into another rectangle on waxed paper. Place on top of the meat and fillings. Smooth the meat on the sides to ensure that there are no gaps. The meat mixture should fully surround the filling or else the cheese will melt and seep out.

Bake for 45 minutes. Top with the canned tomato soup. Bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
