Came across this recipe from Recipes Straight from the Kowboys Home: “Big Mac” Meatloaf. Big Mac meatloaf sounded right up Mr.Picky’s alley. The recipe turned out nice and moist, not sure about tasting like a big mac. It definitely tasted like a cheeseburger. Cheeseburger meatloaf is not your average meatloaf and was a great change.
The technique was really interesting and I am going to run wild with it. I can’t wait to stuff all kinds of fillings into meatloaf. I would serve this as cheeseburgers to company by just slicing and serving on buns.
- 2 lbs. lean ground beef
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup thousand island dressing
- 2/3 cup cracker or bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup sweet relish
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Combine all but the cheese and mix well until evenly combined.
Divide the meat mixture in half. Spread each half flat in to a rectangle on a piece of wax paper.
Sprinkle the cheese even between the two flat rectangles.
Roll each sheet of meat as if making cinnamon rolls, from the long end to long end.
Place the rolls side by side in a 9 x 13″ baking dish.
Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes, remove from oven and top with a bit of ketchup and some more cheese if desired.
Continue to bake another 15 minutes or so.
