A bite of this meatloaf tastes like a bacon cheeseburger without the bun. Ground beef is mixed with sharp cheddar, grated onion, garlic, and ketchup; formed into a loaf; and covered with bacon slices. After it’s baked, a quick broil makes the bacon on top extra crispy. The whole thing’s so easy you’ll have time to spare, which you could use to make homemade potato tots to serve on the side.
