Ground Beef Recipies
Alex's Savory Loaf With Crusty Cheese and Ham Topping

This simplest of ground beef recipies is my son's favorite as he adores savory loaves and best of all this has his all time favorite ingredients - cheese and bacon.

This is such a simple one pot meat that takes just 10 minutes to prepare then it's into the oven for 45 minutes. Oven cooking makes our busy lives easier as you get to work on your other obligations while dinner is happily cooking in the oven and there's no need to carefully watch it for spills or over cooking.

This is such a healthy meal as there's no added oil or fat. BUT, as with all my ground beef recipies, please only ever purchase premium grade ground beef, for the reduced fat content in the meat.

Easy Ground Beef Recipies
Alex's Simple Savory Loaf with Cheese and Bacon Topping

This recipe makes 2 generous loaves; each loaf will serve 4 persons.

Serve with short pasta or fluffy boiled rice and freshly just cooked greens.

Just Add Prepare
• 2 lb/1 kg premium ground beef

• 1/3 cup plain flour

• 1 large onion, diced

• 3 carrots, diced

• 2 eggs, beaten

• 2 tbs sugar

• 2 tbs soy sauce

• salt and pepper to taste

• 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese for topping

• 3 slices bacon, for topping

• Preheat oven to 400F/200C

• Into a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the shredded cheese and bacon

• Mix well and spoon into 2 loaf tins. I use silicone bakeware so as to to minimize work on lining and greasing tins

• Press the meat mixture with the flat back of a wooden spoon so that it is firmly compressed

• Top the mixture with half the shredded cheese and half the bacon rashers. Repeat for the other loaf tin.

• Bake for 45 minutes

This has to be one of the simplest of easy ground beef recipies and it really takes no time at all!

Anything with cheese and bacon is popular with my children, so these ever so simple to make savory loaves are devoured in one sitting.


Use a silicone bake ware to reduce the number of steps in cooking. I only ever use silicone bake ware as this means I needn't worry about greasing and lining baking trays.

Only ever cook with the best grade ground beef so as not to waste time de-fating the meat.
