With all of the Kraft Fresh Take I have been getting for rock bottom prices I decided to try something out!  I was going to try to make meatloaf with it.  Kraft Fresh Take is advertised for fish, pork and chicken but I had beef to cook from my Zaycon Foods order and you cook with what you have to save the most money!

I had two things of beef so I made two meatloaves at once. The cheddar and bacon is a lot simpler than the Rosemary and Garlic, even though they are both easy.  Easy is my middle name but it could also be mistaken as lazy.  Whichever works.  :)

Ingredients for Rosemary & Garlic:

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 1 Kraft Fresh Take Rosemary & Garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.25 pounds 93/7 beef

Ingredients for Cheddar & Bacon:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1.25 pounds 93/7 beef
  • 1 Kraft Fresh Take Cheddar & Bacon
  • Kraft Cheddar Shredded Cheese (optional for topping)
  • Bacon pieces (optional for topping)

I mixed up the ingredients for each meatloaf in their own bowl.  I used a spoon just to keep my hands cleaner since I am taking pictures but using your hand would be a lot quicker to get everything mixed up.

I then greased up a loaf pan and the closest thing I could find for the second one, it happened to be a piece of my Corningware.  I put both into the oven to cook at 350 for 60 minutes.  I toyed with the idea of putting tomato paste on them but it didn’t sound like a good combination so I waited until I tried them first.  I am so glad that I didn’t because it would not have fit with the tastes of the loaves.

Cheddar & Bacon Thoughts:

Next time I am going to top my Cheddar & Bacon loaf with cheese while it is in the oven!  I didn’t think about doing that until it came out of the oven so I topped it off with some shredded cheese and nuked it to try it.  Oh my was it the best idea EVER!  I will add the cheese about 10 minutes before the loaf is done so it gets a nice melt but isn’t burnt.

Any cheese lover is going to love the Cheddar and Bacon meatloaf!  I thought it was so yummy and you could probably fancy it up with bacon pieces on top of the melted cheese.  Or better yet mix bacon into the loaf!  Oh my goodness, that sounds so good!  The flavor was great for me and I was surprised that Michael liked it more with the cheese topping.  He likes fancy tastes like the other meatloaf.

Rosemary & Garlic Thoughts:

This one was delicious too!  I couldn’t believe how great the flavors were in this one.  I actually tolerated the onions and that is very rare for me.  I only cook with them because Michael loves onions.  I guess you could try paste on the top of this one but there are so many great flavors going on that it might take away from that.  Use your own taste discretion but I won’t be adding it to mine next time.
