You Like Meatloaf?

I do...especially when it's a Paula Dean recipe - yum! I'd highly recommend this easy, yet delicious version! (I made some slight changes to the recipe - you can get the original version here.)

  • 1 pound lean ground beef 
  • 10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled 
  • 6-ounces of Cabot 75% fat free sharp cheddar, grated 
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup fat free mayonnaise 
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 
  • 1/3 cup ketchup 
  • 2 tablespoons mustard

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck and next 8 ingredients, mixing well.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and mustard. Stir 1/4 cup ketchup mixture into meat mixture, reserving remaining ketchup mixture.
  4. Press meat mixture into a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over loaf. Bake 55 minutes.


  1. Interesting, I've never really thought about making meatloaf with mayonnaise in it...

  2. Who doesn't love a good meatloaf?! Thanks for sharing your recipe, and for using Cabot cheese :)
