Bacon cheeseburgers are amazing… they can be time-consuming to make at home though. You not only have to prepare your burgers but also cook the bacon, slice the tomatoes and onions, and toast the bun for that satisfying warmth. What mom has time for that on a regular school night? Certainly not me.
Instead of resorting to a drive-thru (or, my fave, Doordash), save some money and calories with this meatloaf version. It’s super easy to make and one recipe makes 3 meatloaves! I don’t even defrost it before throwing it in the oven. Simply toss it in and let it cook a little longer. Don’t worry. I tell you how below.
Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf Ingredients
- 3 Pounds Ground Turkey
- 1 Box of Turkey Stuffing
- 1 Egg
- 2.5 ounce Package of Bacon Crumbles
- 2 Cups Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
First, preheat your oven to 400° Fahrenheit.
Then add your ground turkey to a large mixing bowl.
Next open your box of stuffing and add it to your ground turkey.
Add the entire package of bacon crumbles and 1 egg to your mixing bowl.
Lastly, add your cheese to the mixing bowl.
Once all of your ingredients are in the mixing bowl, mix until well combined.
After the ingredients are mixed, divide the mixture into thirds and place in loaf pans.
- I use the foil 3-packs from Dollar Tree and they work great. They freeze well and can be placed directly in the oven.
To make immediately, bake at 400° Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
How to Freeze Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
Unless you’re feeding a crowd, 3 meatloaves are enough for 3 meals. To freeze them, cover the loaf pan with foil. Add a piece of painter’s tape to the top and label with the meal, cooking instructions, and serving recommendations.
Freezer Cooking Instructions
I hate it when I forget to defrost dinner which is why I love freezer meals that I can throw in the oven or Crock Pot frozen. That’s totally how you prepare these super easy meatloaves. Simply remove the painter’s tape label (carefully so that you don’t rip the foil). Then place in a 400° oven for 1 to 1.5 hours. Then serve it topped with barbecue sauce and with your choice of side dish for a super simple weeknight meal.
Now you can enjoy an amazing dinner easily when you stock your freezer with this bacon cheeseburger meatloaf recipe! For a truly quick and easy meal, serve with a salad or microwave vegetables. Done and done! If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, this is also incredible served with creamy mashed potatoes. Those take more time, from scratch, so maybe just save them for a weekend dinner or get the microwave kind. Either way, it will be yummy!
