Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Bacon Cheeseburger MeatloafI was looking up low-carb options for binding ingredients when I stumbled across Paula Deen's Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe. While the idea sounded fabulous, Paula's recipe needed a little tweaking to fit our low-carb, grain-free diet.

6 slices bacon, divided (5 oz)
2 lbs ground beef
1½ c shredded cheddar, divided (6 oz)
2 eggs
1 T dry minced onions
⅓ c crushed pork rinds (½ oz)
½ t pepper
2 T mustard
⅓ cup ketchup, divided
    Burger-Shaped Meatloaf
  1. Cook bacon until crispy. Crumble into a large bowl, reserving 2 slices.
  2. Add beef, 1 c cheese, eggs, onions, pork rinds, pepper, mustard, and ¼ c ketchup. Mix well.
  3. Shape into a flat-topped loaf (or form a giant burger) and place on metal rack over a baking sheet. Spread remaining ketchup over top of loaf.
  4. Bake at 400°F for 50 minutes. Top with remaining ½ c cheese and crumble reserved bacon slices over the center of the loaf.
  5. Bake an additional 20-25 min or until cheese is bubbly and beef is no longer pink in the center.
