This recipe is quick because I already have packages of cooked bacon and shredded cheese in my freezer. I just defrost them and add them to the ground beef mixture.—Kimberly Lund, Park City, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 cup crumbled cooked bacon (about 12 bacon strips), divided
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, milk, 1 cup Swiss cheese, 3/4 cup bacon, bread crumbs, garlic powder and onion powder. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°. Drain. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bacon. Bake 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
