Enjoy this meatloaf recipe!!  It sounds like an easy thing to mix together and throw in the oven!!

1 small bag of prepared real bacon bits (about 1 cup)
1 (8oz) package sharp or mild Cheddar, grated
2 large eggs
1/4 c bread crumbs
1/4 c mayo
1 tblsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/3 c ketchup
2 tblsp prepared yellow mustard
1 (3 oz) can French fried onions  (optional)

Preheat over to 350 degrees
In large bowl, combine ground chuck and next 8 ingredients.  Mix well.
In small bowl, combine ketchup and mustard, reserving ketchup mixture for topping.

In a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan, shape meat mixture into loaf.  Spread ketchup mixture over the loaf.
Bake 40 minutes.  (optional:  top with french fried onions, and bake another 10-15 minutes) or until meat is no longer pink.

Pairs well with green beans or broccoli or any style potato.

This looks like a great new twist on meatloaf. I'm not a huge fan of the tomato-y based ones. I can't wait to make this one.

This was good! It was for sure a different kind of meatloaf, but it was good! My husband called it more of a hamburger casserole than a meatloaf. haha...
