• 10 slices bacon
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (3 ounce) can French-fried onions
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


  • Step 2

    Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. When cool, crumble into a large bowl.

  • Step 3

    Mix ketchup and mustard in a bowl.

  • Step 4

    Thoroughly combine 1/4 the ketchup mixture, ground chuck, Cheddar cheese, eggs, bread crumbs, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper with crumbled bacon in bowl; pat the mixture into a 5×9-inch loaf pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture evenly over top of meatloaf.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until the meatloaf is no longer pink inside, about 45 minutes. Spread French-fried onions over the top of the loaf and return to oven until onions are browned and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 10 to 15 more minutes.
