Amazing Stuffed Meatloaf
When thinking of a feel-good sit down at the table with my family dinner, meatloaf is my go-to. Meatloaf was the first meal I ever cooked my husband. We were gonna cook Easter dinner together many years ago when we were just dating. I asked him what he wanted me to make and he said meatloaf. I have to say I was kind of shocked because I expected him to say ham or turkey.
Growing up Easter dinner always consisted of Ham or Turkey but turns out I found out later that he was trying to think of something simple that I couldn’t mess up.
The kids in the house were never big fans of plain old meatloaf so it never got made much well I was raising them. If only I would have found this recipe for amazing stuffed meatloaf sooner.
They surely would have loved this stuffed meatloaf. What’s not to love? Everything is so much better with cheese. My husband is not a huge beef eater either. He definitely would prefer to eat chicken most of the time. Therefore, we eat a lot of Buffalo Chicken Tenders and CrockPot Creamy Mushroom Chicken
He did, however, find this stuffed meatloaf very good.
Making this stuffed meatloaf is fairly easy. All you will need is ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, mushrooms, cheese of choice, (I used mozzarella) garlic powder, salt, and pepper, tomato sauce or ketchup (optional). I also made a low carb version of this meatloaf in which I replaced the bread crumbs with almond flour and left off the tomato sauce.
