Bacon Swiss Meat Loaf Recipe

This recipe is quick because I already have packages of cooked bacon and shredded cheese in my freezer. I just defrost them and add them to the ground beef mixture.—Kimberly Lund, Park City, Kansas

MY REVIEW

I used what i had on hand at the time, (half n half for the evaporated milk, and Chedder for the Swiss). It came out just fine and my family loved it. I will be keeping this one hand for a easy dinner Kay Matson

Honestly, at first when I saw this recipe I thought, who makes meatloaf w/ swiss cheese? But my husband thought the idea was great & asked if I would make it. I followed the recipe exactly and when we had family over, served it up. There wasn't a word spoken while eating & there wasn't a drop left. The meatloaf is delicious and the recipe is a total keeper. Thanks so much for submitting this Kimberly!

I have made this several times and this is the only way my husband will eat meatloaf. I enjoy it myself, however I rarely have swiss cheese on hand and rarely buy it, so I will sometimes substitute it with mozzarella cheese. Since it's just my husband and I eating, I will make smaller loaves and freeze the rest. This also cuts the bake time in half.

I've made this a couple times but I used cheddar cheese instead of swiss. This is a keeper!
