Take A Bite Out Of This Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf!

This bacon and cheeseburger meatloaf is perfect! I loved everything about this meal. It was so delicious. I loved the bacon in this dish and I absolutely loved the ooey gooey cheese that was spilling out of the meatloaf. Once I saw how much my husband liked this meal, I knew that I had to spread the word. I made this meatloaf and brought it to a potluck at my church. It was a major hit! There was not one little crumb left by the time the potluck was over! I gave out the recipe like 10 times that day! This is a wonderful take on meatloaf to make it different! Try it out and you will love it!
