The First Easy Step

The first step to preparing this meatloaf is to take one egg and ¼ cup of heavy whipping cream and put it in a bowl.  (I have used milk before and it tastes fine.)

Easy Step Number Two

Add 1 Tablespoon of dried chopped onions, 2 Teaspoons of ground sage, and 1 Teaspoon of Lawry’s seasoning salt.  Mix all of it together.

Step Number Three or Where's the Beef?

Mix in 1 ½ pounds of ground beef.

Step Number Four

Add 1 cup of cubed cheddar cheese and about 30 crushed Saltine crackers.

Step Number Five

Mold into a loaf, and put it in a baking pan sprayed with Pam.

Cut a slice down the middle of the loaf and add two Bay leaves.

Step Number Six

Top with Catsup, and two strips of uncooked bacon. 

Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 1 ¼ hours. 

Yes, it really is that easy!

I like to throw some potatoes in the oven at the same time that the meatloaf is cooking so that my family can enjoy baked potatoes along with the easy cheesy meatloaf. Throw together a salad and you have a meal fit for a king!

All ready to eat! Easy Cheesy Meatloaf dinner!

      I have to say I have never cooked meatloaf with cheese like that, nor have I used the bay leaves. Sometimes it's those little extras that make the dish so good. I will have to try this one.
