Bacon Swiss Meatloaf

1 bacon strip, crumbled
1 egg, beaten
1/3 Cup butter crackers crushed
5 Tablespoons shredded Swiss cheese
4 ½ teaspoons chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
½ lb. Ground beef

In bowl combine egg, crackers, 4 Tablespoons shredded cheese, chopped onion, garlic, bacon, salt and pepper. Add beef into mixture and combine. Shape into loaf and freeze wrapped in tin foil or in a ziploc bag. When ready to cook take out of the freezer and place in a loaf pan. Top with more bacon pieces if desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes- 1 hour. Test with a meat thermometer.

*The first time we made this, we doubled the recipe for each family and we're glad we did! Half a pound of ground beef would have made a tiny loaf. One full pound made a decent size loaf for a family meal.

  1. Tried this tonight & really liked it. The cooking time was not accurate, though!!! I thawed my meatloaf before baking & let it bake for 70 minutes at 350 degrees before it was cooked all the way through. (checked at 40 minutes, then again at 60 minutes--and drained off quite a bit of grease both times) It smelled really good while baking!
