Cooking with FOX 7: Jalapeno Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Emily Madden with H-E-B Cooking Connection puts her unique spin on a classic dish.

The recipe is as follows:


  • 2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup Byers Best Candied Jalapenos, chopped
  • 2/3 cups bread crumbs
  • 2/3 cups Bodacious Red Soppin' Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Adams Reserve Just Right Burger Spice
  • 2 cups H-E-B Mild Cheddar thick shredded


  • Combine all ingredients except cheese in a large mixing bowl.
  • Using your hands mix all the ingredients until well incorporated. Divide the mixture in two.
  • Place one half of the meat mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish and form the bottom of the meatloaf by flattening it out in the shape of a loaf.
  • Place the shredded cheese on top of the meat leaving about an inch from the sides.
  • Place the remaining meat on top of the cheese and form into a loaf, making sure to close the sides so the cheese stays in the middle.
  • Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 45-60 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°.
  • Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
