Keto Cheese-burger Meatloaf with BBQ Mayo

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

Classic meatloaf meets cheeseburger for this keto take on comfort food. If you usually make meatloaf in a loaf pan, you'll love how hand-molding it into a loaf, and wrapping it in bacon, gives it a crispy, seared exterior while keeping the gooey, cheese-filled center. Serve with a fresh salad and BBQ mayo.

Rate recipe



  1. Move the oven rack to the middle position, and preheat the oven to 375°F (200°C). Line a baking tray with tin foil, and place a fitted wire rack on top.

  2. In a large bowl, gently mix together the ground meat, garlic, egg, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

  3. Using your hands, shape the meat mixture into a loaf, approximately 8"x 5" (20 x 13 cm). Create a ditch in the middle of the loaf, by pressing the meat down length-wise and out to the sides (about 2" or 5 cm wide), leaving a 1" (2.5 cm) meat perimeter around the space. Fill with the cheese, and then use the meat edges to spread over the cheese.

  4. Place the meatloaf on the wire rack. Wrap the bacon slices over the loaf width-wise, and tuck the ends underneath. Bake on the middle rack for 50-60 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160-165°F (71-74°C). For crispier bacon, broil for 2-3 minutes. Set aside to rest for 10-15 minutes, before serving. In the meantime, prepare the BBQ mayo and salad.
