How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place bacon in skillet.
  • Cook until crispy.
  • Drain bacon pieces with a slotted spoon.
  • RESERVE 1 tablespoon bacon drippings in pan.
  • Stir in onions and mushrooms.
  • Cook until soft.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the beef, egg and milk.
  • Stir in the onion and mushrooms.
  • Mix in about half the Swiss cheese.
  • Mix in all BUT 1 tablespoon bacon.
  • Stir in cornflake crumbs.
  • Mix until well blended.
  • Shape into a loaf.
  • Place in meatloaf pan.
  • **We do not use a loaf pan as it allows grease back into the loaf. We normally bake the loaf on a rack placed on a cookie sheet with sides so the grease can drain.
  • Bake for 1 hour.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Drain fat.
  • Sprinkle with remaining Swiss and bacon.
  • Return to oven.
  • Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

    Glad I made you happy, carol lee! This is truly a "come as you are" meatloaf, isn't it? Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you but I have been down with some sort of bug and just didn't think GR was too important.

    Try purchasing a double bottomed meatloaf pan set. It lets the grease drip through to the bottom pan. I am very happy with mine.

    Holy moly, michael. Here I go to all the "trouble" of posting a fantastic recipe for a fabulous meatloaf and you want to go ahead and turn it right into a burger on me! tee hee When we first tried this, my nephew wanted to know if next time we could use Frosted Flakes... Actually the "less-greasy" approach to cooking meatloaf was Ed's idea. He complained about the botom being boiled in grease! This truly does help. And sometimes Mr Kentucky Ed even uses some of the "drippings" to make himself gravy. Actually, one night next week I may try this as a burger. Does that sound good to you, michael? Thanks for the five but you ARE easy, ya know!

    Wow Lorraine I love the addition of cornflakes in place of bread crumbs.
    That baking tip 17.of the directions is a great idea.
    I bet this would make a great burger recipe too.
    Five forks.
