“Beautifully mellow in flavor, this meatloaf has a ribbon of cheese flowing through the middle of it. Use the cheese of your choice. In this recipe, I use Cheddar cheese, but you could try it with blue cheese or American cheese.”

This is exactly the same recipe given to me by my mother-in-law, only without the addition of the cheese. For a variation, I highly recommend shaping the loaf "free form" on a foil-lined broiler pan, and lay slices of bacom horizontally across the top and sides, tucking the ends under the loaf. The bacon really makes this meatloaf delicious!



My kids love cheese inside their meatloaf, so I've used several types. Mozarella in the center with marinara sauce covering the top of the loaf is a nice italian version. Pepper jack and enchilada sauce makes it a little mexican. You can let your imagination go wild. Try ham and swiss and cover top with cream of mushroom soup too.



I have made this recipe alot!! My family loves it, I would never make a different meatloaf after having found this recipe, I share this recipe with friends and family alot.
