What’s more delicious: a perfect meatloaf or a juicy bacon cheeseburger? With the recipe below, you don’t have to choose. This meatloaf is stuffed with cheese and bacon just like your favorite burger. And the best thing is, it cooks in the slow cooker while you are at work so you can come home to a magical meal that’s ready to devour.
For a fun serving idea, top this meatloaf with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, chopped pickles, and any other toppings you like on a luscious cheeseburger. Serve extra ketchup on the side, too, if your family likes a saucy burger. You can also replace the ketchup (both inside and on top of the meatloaf) with barbecue sauce if you prefer.
