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

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as beef in Steps 1 and 2, roasting until meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 21-25 minutes.

  1. 1

    Form the Meatloaves

    Finely crush saltine crackers.

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

    Form ground beef mixture into two equally-sized ovals.

  2. 2

    Bake the Meatloaves

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

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

    While loaves bake, cook green beans.

  3. 3

    Cook the Green Beans

    Trim ends off green beans.

    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, make ranch sauce.

  4. 4

    Make the Ranch Sauce

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

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

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

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping meatloaf with BBQ sauce and topping green beans with ranch sauce and crispy peppers. Bon appétit!
