In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Labor Day Meatloaf Cheeseburgers. This homespun recipe is very American—a combination of cookout food and comfort food. It goes great with Loaded Whipped Potatoes!


2 eggs, well beaten
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup ketchup
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, finely chopped, with seeds and fibers removed
finely chopped red bell pepper, equal to the amount of jalapeno pepper
½ white onion, chopped medium-fine
½ cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
1 pound lean ground beef (I used 96% lean—4% fat.)
Tomato Bourbon Mayonnaise (recipe in bettyskitchen)
sliced tomato
iceberg lettuce
sliced cheddar cheese
Bavarian Pretzel Sandwich Buns (You may use any sandwich bun that is about the same size as the burger
Whipped Loaded Potatoes (accompaniment—recipe in bettyskitchen)

In a large bowl, place 2 well beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ cup ketchup, 1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper, finely chopped red bell pepper (equal to the amount of jalapeno pepper), ½ white onion, chopped, and ½ cup fine, dry breadcrumbs. Mix thoroughly with electric mixer on medium speed.

Add 1 pound lean ground beef, and Mix thoroughly with mixer on medium or high speed. Form meatloaf mixture into 5 patties (about ¼ pound each). Grill on electric kitchen grill. (If using an outdoor grill, place the patties on aluminum foil, so that they do not crumble and fall apart. The electric grill holds them together and cooks quickly from bottom and top.)

When meatloaf patties are done all the way through, remove them from grill and place on paper toweling to drain. To assemble, spread the bottom half of a pretzel bun with Tomato Bourbon Mayonnaise (or plain mayonnaise, mustard, or ketchup). Place meatloaf pattie on top of mayonnaise spread.

Next, place a slice of cheddar cheese on the meatloaf pattie. Top with a slice of tomato and some iceberg lettuce. Close the sandwich with the top of the pretzel bun. Serve with Whipped Loaded Potatoes (recipe in bettyskitchen) and iced tea for a great Labor Day holiday meal! Happy Labor Day! Love you all! –Betty ♡♥♡♥♡
