Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Form the Meatloaves

    Finely crush crackers.

    Thoroughly combine ground beef, crushed crackers, mayonnaise, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in a mixing bowl.

    Form ground beef mixture into two equally-sized oval-shaped loaves.

  2. 2

    Roast the Meatloaves

    Place meatloaves on prepared baking sheet. Top evenly with cheese, then bacon, pressing gently to adhere.

    Roast in hot oven until loaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 20-25 minutes.

    While loaves roast, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Cook the Green Beans

    Trim green beans, if necessary.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add green beans and 1/4 cup water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cover and stir occasionally until water is evaporated, 5-7 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

    While green beans cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Make the Ranch Sauce

    In another mixing bowl, thoroughly combine sour cream, 1 Tbsp. water, and buttermilk-dill seasoning. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Cut meatloaves into 1/2" slices, if desired.
