Cheeseburger Meat Loaf Recipe
- 1/2 cup ketchup, divided
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
- 2 teaspoons dill pickle relish
- 6 slices process American cheese
- In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup ketchup, egg, bread crumbs and onion powder. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. On a large piece of waxed paper, pat beef mixture into a 10-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Spread remaining ketchup over meat to within 1/2 in. of long sides and 1-1/2 in. of short sides. Top with mustard and relish.
- Place four cheese slices on top; set remaining cheese aside. Roll up loaf, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and pulling away waxed paper while rolling. Seal seams and ends well. Place loaf, seam side down, in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking pan.
- Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Cut the reserved cheese slices in half diagonally; place on top of loaf. Return to the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.

"We all like this spin on meatloaf! I sometimes add liquid smoke to flavor it more like a burger, and any leftovers are cut and served on buns the next day. Kid friendly, yet my husband likes it too."
"Kids liked the cheeseburger taste."
"Tasty, but I'm not coordinated enough to make it work!"
"I do not like meat loaf....this I love and so does my husband. Thank you for such a great recipe."
"I added a little salt and liquid smoke to this. It took longer to cook than I expected, but that was likely due to it being rolled. I served this on chopped lettuce and tomato and put mayo and ketchup on when I served it. I was also generous with the relish and mustard. Yummy recipe, I highly recommend it!"
