Meatloaf with Mom
When I visit home Mom always asks what I want her to cook for us. I always ask for stuffed meatloaf. So, naturally when my Mom and Dad came to visit us we decided to make this favorite together!
This stuffed meatloaf is comfort food to the maximum. It can be made as simple as you like or gourmet as you like. Just make it!
The original way my mom made it was with mozzarella cheese and thin sliced dried beef sandwich slices. This is perfectly acceptable. This time around I put my own twists on the meat and cheese. Nothing crazy, but a few more flavorful ingredients.
First, the meatloaf mix.
If you have a meatloaf recipe you love, use it! You’ll like this easy twist even more. Everyone has a bit of different idea of what meatloaf should taste like and consist of. We mix hamburger with brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, chopped onions, bread crumbs, egg and worcestershire sauce.
For 1lb of hamburger:
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/8 cup mustard
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Press it down flat. Take your meatloaf mix and create a flat, 1” thick “rectangle” on parchment or waxed paper.
Lay a single layer of your meat followed by a layer of cheese. Keep these layers within about an inch border around your rectangle.
Roll it up. Using the parchment or waxed paper, bring a long side of the rectangle over itself to start your “roll”. Ease it over itself until you have rolled it completely over itself. Be careful to keep the meat and cheese from sliding out as you roll.
Seal the long “seam” on top and then pinch your ends closed to hold the layers in when they melt while cooking.
Place it in a glass rectangle or a greased bread pan. Break some of your cheese over the meatloaf and coat the top with BBQ sauce (whatever kind you like). The oven should be at 350 degrees. Bake for approximately 60 minutes.
Let it set for just a few minutes and slice it as thin or thick as you want.
If I were you, I would make sure to hide a few slices in the fridge before it gets devoured. Because as good as it is for dinner when it's hot... it's to-die-for as a cold meatloaf sandwich the next day. EAT IT!
