Love meatloaf? Make it on the grill for a summertime treat!

Ingredients

1
lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
1/4
cup Progresso™ plain bread crumbs
3
tablespoons ketchup
1
teaspoon onion salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper
1
egg
1/2
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
4
slices center-cut bacon (about 3 1/2 oz), cut crosswise in half

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix all ingredients except bacon. On work surface, pat mixture into 7-inch square. Cut into 4 (3 1/2-inch) squares. Top each square with 2 half-slices bacon; attach with toothpicks.
  • 3 Carefully spray grill rack with cooking spray. Place patties on unheated side of two-burner gas grill or over drip pan on charcoal grill (medium heat). (If using one-burner gas grill, cook over low heat.) Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until slightly pink in center.
  • 4 Using spatula, turn patties over. Cover grill; cook 5 to 8 minutes longer or until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F and bacon is crisp. Remove toothpicks before serving.

Expert Tips

Use Italian-style bread crumbs for a different flavor. You could also use pizza or spaghetti sauce for the ketchup.

Center-cut bacon has had the fatty ends cut off. You can use slices of regular bacon--just trim about 3/4 inch off of each end. The half-strips should just cover the surface of each beef square.
