Meatloaf Baked Potato with BACON!

Meatloaf Baked Potato

One of my favorite meals growing up was my mom’s bacon topped meat loaf with a giant baked potato. Honestly, who wouldn’t like that?.. I’ll give you a hint. NO ONE 😉

In fact, I loved the recipe so much I decided to take my mom’s famous recipe one step further by combining the meat loaf and the baked potato. And, On top of that I took it one step further and added fresh mozzarella cheese. The results were spectacular and had to share it on here!

First you bake 3 large potatoes until you can stick a fork in them (1 hour at 400°F). Why’ll the potatoes are baking and getting nice and soft, you can start on the meatloaf mixture.

Because these looked soooo delicius, it was tempting to take one of these bad boys with a bunch of butter and just eat it, but I was good 🙂

Rather than burning yourself like I did, let the potatoes cool to the touch, hollow them out, add the cheese, and top them with the meat loaf mixture:

Finally, bake at 350 for 1 hour then increase the temp to 425 for an addition 20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy:
