My boyfriend has that “The Amazing Meatloaf Pan” where you just can’t fail on making a great meatloaf and so we decided to make Bacon Cheeseburger meatloaf which is one of the recipes from the recipe book you get with the purchase.  I wasn’t really a meatloaf fan until I tried the original meatloaf my boyfriend and I made last year. It was delicious and full of flavor even-though all the fat dripped! What’s great about meatloaf is that you can make it in no time, have a slice for dinner along with scallop potatoes, or veggies. What’s even better is that it makes a great left over for tomorrow’s diner. You can make it a hamburger! Who needs to go to a fast food joint when you can use lean ground beef and use bacon and not feel guilty since the fat is dripped during the baking process.
