Cheddar Meatloaf September 25, 2014

I love meatloaf, the husband doesn’t. I came across this recipe in Big City Cooking and thought that with the cheese it may be a hit with him. I was right. He actually had leftovers which is unheard of for him. I enjoyed it a lot and served it with mashed potatoes.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp finely chopped rosemary
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup tomato sauce

Preheat the oven to 400. In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, egg, rosemary, salt and pepper. On a sheet of waxed paper pat out the meat into a 9 x 12 inch rectangle. Sprinkle the cheese over the meat, leaving a thin boarder. Roll tightly (like a jelly roll) and pinch the edges together to seal. Transfer to a load pan and bake until internal temp is 140 which will take about 45 minutes.

Serve with the tomato sauce.
