Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

You really can’t go wrong with a classic bacon cheeseburger, but sometimes you need to mix it up a bit. Loaded with beer braised onions, sharp cheddar, and of course bacon, this meatloaf is definitely not your momma’s meatloaf (sorry mom).

Ingredients
  1. 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  4. 3/4 cup TREE BREWING THIRSTY BEAVER AMBER ALE or OLD SKOOL STOUT
  5. 1 pound lean ground beef
  6. 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  7. 1/2 cup milk
  8. 1/2 cup TASTE OF THE OKANAGAN BACON KETCHUP, divided
  9. 1 tablespoon TASTE OF THE OKANAGAN MAGIC SEASONING
  10. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  11. 1 large egg
  12. 8 ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded
  13. 1 pound bacon, uncooked
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add diced onion and salute until translucent. About 10 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with brown sugar and allow onions to caramelize for a couple of minutes. Pour in TREE BREWING BEER and simmer until almost all the liquid is absorbed. Allow to cool.
  4. In a large bowl combine beef, bread crumbs and milk.  Pouring milk directly over bread crumbs.  Add 2 tablespoons TASTE OF THE OKANAGAN BACON KETCHUP, Worcestershire and steak seasoning and onions. Set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, crack egg and beat it slightly.  Add egg to large bowl with meat mixture.
  6. Combine well with hands, being careful not to overwork the meat mixture.
  7. Divide in meat mixture in half.  Place first half into 7x10” baking dish and form into a flat meatloaf  Gently press the center in to create a rim around the outside of the meatloaf.  Add shredded cheese into the center of the meatloaf.  Form remaining half of meatloaf in the bowl into a size similar to the meatloaf in the pan.  Set on top and press the sides together to seal in the cheese.  Form into a loaf shape. You may notice cracks in the loaf.  Run your hands under warm water and then across the meatloaf to smooth the cracks out.  Set meatloaf aside.
  8. Top meatloaf with remaining TASTE OF THE OKANAGAN BACON KETCHUP and arrange bacon slices over the top of the meatloaf.  Start by wrapping a piece of bacon across the front side and a second piece of bacon across the back side.  Arrange remaining bacon over the top.  Tuck the ends of the bacon under the meatloaf (this prevents curling).
  9. Place meatloaf in the oven and bake until bacon is crispy, about 1 hour.
  10. Remove from oven.  Allow to rest uncovered for 20 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
