50s Prime Time Burgers



A couple of weeks ago I printed off an Eat at Home Meal Plan that included 50s Prime Time Meatloaf.  I love that meatloaf, but I really wanted to grill out instead.

Thankfully, I realized that the meatloaf recipe would make fantastic burgers!  I adapted it by skipping the bread crumbs and eggs, but using the rest of the ingredients.  It made wonderful burgers that had lots of flavor and were very moist.

I chose to top the burgers with white American cheese.  That was really good, but I think next time I’ll try cheddar instead.

Here’s what you’ll need:  


This made about 10 burgers.  If you don’t need that many, you can either cut the recipe in half or freeze half of them before grilling.  I love having things like that in the freezer.

    What a great idea! I would probably cut the recipe in half for 5 burgers, but it’s something good to try in the summer when we’re grilling. We always enjoy seeing Disney inspired recipes!
