Meatloaf Stuffing

Recipe by  

"I get bored of regular red sauce meatloaf. I've combined my version of holiday stuffing and turned it into a meatloaf. This alternative is delicious and full of veggies and apples. Instead of using bread crumbs, crackers, or oatmeal, try Pepperidge Farm® Herb Seasoned Stuffing! Perfect for fall-winter comfort-style dinners. Pairs well with traditional mashed potatoes and dinner rolls. After experimenting several times over the course of a few years, I've come up with what I call 'Meatloaf Stuffing'. You can use ground beef if meatloaf meat is not available. Enjoy!"

Original recipe makes 1 9x5-inch loaf Change Servings
  • PREP

    20 mins
  • COOK

    1 hr 30 mins

    1 hr 55 mins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix meatloaf meat, apples, onion, stuffing mix, celery, milk, water, eggs, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Spread cream of mushroom soup into a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Spoon meat mixture into the loaf pan and use a spatula to gently flatten the top of the loaf.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Cool in pan for 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Flip meatloaf pan upside-down onto a serving platter so the cream of mushroom soup is on the top of the loaf.

I made it for my boyfriend because he loves meatloaf and I changed it up a bit but he loved it. I used a cornbread stuffing, and cooked my hamburger meat before mixing all the ingredients. If you don't have an hour+ time to cook that cuts your cooking time in half. If you let it cool down a bit after taking it out of the oven it still holds together like a meatloaf if your wanton to serve it on a platter. If not like us, we just scoop it out and it was great :) thank you!

This was excellent and the family loved it. Didn't have apples so skipped it. We don't care for the traditional meatloaf but this was easy and tasty. Will rotate into our menu. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I did change this to my boyfriend's liking! But still great base recipe! I was never a meatloaf fan until now. Boyfriend is but I never made one until this one that we both liked. He begged me not to change anything and make meatloaf more often. Thank you for recipe.

This was really good! Smelled amazing and tasted like Thanksgiving in a meatloaf! I used ground beef and Johnsonville sausage for the meat, made my own cream of mushroom soup. Everyone in the family loved this. Thanks! Next time I'll stuff it will bleu cheese!

I tried this recipe tonight. I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. And replaced the apple with diced red pepper, half a zucchini, diced and mixed all the remaining ingredients together. My husband walked in the door and said, something smells so good. If it tastes half as good as it smells, it will be delicious. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for sharing it.
