This meatloaf super easy to make, just mix and bake. Here’s how I make Bacon Ranch Meatloaf in the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System.

This is one meatloaf my kids would love! You really can not go wrong with anything involving bacon, ranch and cheese.

There’s something about meatloaf that I really love and you paired it with delicious Ma and cheese!! I love mine with mashed potatoes 🙂

Yes, it takes the potatoes off the plate which changes the flavor a bit!

How do you convert recipe to regular oven?

I’m sure it could be made in the oven. If I were going to try making this in a regular oven I would probably try setting the oven to 350 and cooking for maybe 45 minutes (checking after 40).
