We love this fun twist on meatloaf. We often substitute ground turkey for half or all of the ground beef.

Used ground turkey. Very tasty and something different. Using 2lbs makes a large loaf. Feed 4 hungry people with plenty of leftovers...will make again. I would say the relish was a strong taste in this which was fine.
Fun twist on mom's old fashioned-meatloaf recipe. Everyone at the table just loved this!
Fresh breadcrumbs are much moister than dry canned breadcrumbs. Maybe that was an issue for the earlier commenter?
I was really excited about making this Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf. It turned out good but not something I would make weekly.
When adding breadcrumbs, at the very minimum add an extra 1/4 cup. I added the recommended 3/4 cups and the whole meatloaf fell apart.
It does NOT heat well the next day (tastes different in a bad way). If you plan on making this for two people, cut the recipe in half and don't make unless the whole thing will get eaten that day.
As for cooking it, I left it uncovered so the bacon would crisp up. When i did that the cheese on the top burnt. So if you don't want the cheese to burn, cover it but the bacon won't be as crispy.. I also added 2 diced fresh jalapenos to the mix to give it some heat.
All in all the meatloaf had great flavor (kind of BBQ-ish) and I'd definitely make it again with these small tweaks!
