extra-lean ground beef
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
thinly sliced cooked ham
provolone cheese, sliced
I had plain breadcrumbs so I had to season my own with homemade italian seasoning. I used about a tablespoon. I added 1 tablespoon worchestershire to the beaten eggs, upped the garlic powder to a teaspoon and a half, eliminated the salt and I used black forest ham. I had a heck of a time rolling this, even with the butcher paper. I did get it rolled and smushed back together, but it came apart a little in the baking process. I think if I make this again, I'll let the meat mixture sit fifteen minutes before rolling or chill it an hour or something. It's in the oven now (and smells AMAZING) so I'll update how the family liked it once they've tried it. EDITED: Even as ugly as it came out, it was really tasty. The whole family LOVED it. This one's a keeper. I just have to practice rolling it!
NEEDS MORE GARLIC
I thought this recipe turned out wonderfully, although I added some things! I added a bit of ketchup and mustard, along with brown sugar and a touch of balsamic vinaigrette. I covered it for half of the cook time with foil-it turned out great!
I love meatloaf and infact i would eat it more, but my husband doesnt care for it. Well when i saw cheese in this recipe, i figured hey thats what he likes! Put cheese in anything and he will eat it... He did. Now seriously, i personally thought this was a great recipe. Was not hard at all to make. The taste was excellent. Very differnt and very satisfing. What I might do next time is change the way it is cooked. I did cook it for 2 hours and my center was still way to pink. Maybe if you layer it in a square 9x9 or 8x8. I am not sure, but there has to be a better way. 2 hours is way too much. I really enjoyed eating it though. The next night I heated it up and made sandwiches. We put pickles and mayo on whole wheat bread and it was almost like a burger! This is a keeper, except for the way it is cook, i will come up with a plan for next time..
I gave this 5 stars (this is in comparison to other meatloafs, not recipes in general). It was excellent (and I don't even like meatloaf!), and sooo fast & easy to put together. I baked it for an hour- the top and ends were perfectly done, but inside was a little pink. Next time I'll do as someone suggested and cover with tin foil about 45 minutes in, then bake another 25 minutes. A definate keeper- my husband loved it too! Looking forward to the left overs!
My husband LOVED this recipe - said "This one's a keeper!" I took "PotatoFreak's" suggestion & used multiple cheeses & pepperoni on the inside. Afterplacing the meatloaf in the pan, I wrapped it in bacon, baked for 1hr & 10 minutes covered, then 20 minutes uncovered. Moist & perfect! Thank you so much for a great dish!
I did this a little differently but with excellent results! I stuffed it with american, mozzerella and pepperoni. Topped it with strips of bacon and a ketchup, brown sugar, mustard sauce. I cooked it covered for an hour and 10 minutes and uncovered for 20. It was moist and wonderful! I will make this one again and again.
This was great! My family loved it! I also added mozzerella cheese to mine.
I baked it for 45 minutes covered in foil, and another 45min. w/out. Turned out GREAT!!
