Presenting...The Meatloaf Burger

Ingredients:
2 lb ground meat
1T mustard
2T A-1
1/3 c fine diced onion
1/3 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/3c diced ham or diced cooked bacon
2T Mojo (can be deleted if you don't have any)
1/2T Montreal Steak Seasoning
2 eggs
salt & pepper to taste
Progresso Italian Breadcrumbs

Directions:
Add everything in a large bowl EXCEPT the breadcrumbs. Mix well.
Add small amount of breadcrumbs.
Let sit 10 minutes.
Check for firmness. You are going for a meatloaf type consistency.
Slap the mixture (nope, not kidding here). It should be rather still when you do.
If it jiggles like my thighs, add more breadcrumbs. Let sit 5 minutes. Slap again.

Once you have the consistency about that of meatloaf, form into patties and grill.

Ingredients can be added or changed depending on what you have handy or to fit your taste. I think at one point these included green peppers, but I don't eat them. They disappeared.


When making these Ronnie usually does 2 sets of burgers 1 set of meatloaf, 1 set of regular. We usually have regular ones left over and not enough meatloaf.

Please enjoy! Once you've tried them let me know what you think. My office still begs for these at least once a month and it's been a year since he made them. :)

Sounds yummy!! Thank you! We'll definitely have these soon (after I get my Mojo, of course). BTW, I tried to find Ronnie's requested spice today, without luck. I will check Central Market next time I'm there, as I expect they'll have a better spice selection than the grocery store I visited.

Yum! We'll be trying this, too.

Wow, Caroline....your thighs "giggle"? Heehee!!! Cracking up!!

Update: Delicious! Like Beth, I loved mine plain with just a bit of mustard to dip each bite in. SLURP!

The mojo is just fantastic! So far, we've used it on chicken (cut into strips and put atop a salad, in the meatloaf burgers, and I put some on my pork tenderloin this weekend.
Again, thank you and Chef Elvis SO much for your generosity in sharing this with us! I gave my mom some to use on her chicken. She hasn't done it yet, but I'll let you know what she thinks. ;)
