Triple Cheese Meatloaf


In my house, anything stuffed with cheese is a hit. I’m a major “cheeseaholic” who could probably never live without cheese. What’s great about this recipe is that it is very easy to make! You could also substitute one cheese type for another.

Ingredients:

FOR THE MEATLOAF MIX:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground sausage (if you cannot find ground sausage, use 1 lb sweet Italian sausage and remove casings)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

OTHERS:

  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 firm medium tomato, sliced
  • 1 scallion (green onions), sliced
  • a dash of ground black pepper
  • several teaspoons worth of grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients from the Meatloaf Mix list. Mix well. Divide this mix into two pieces.
  3. You will need either a round baking dish or a 8″ square baking dish pan. Spray this with some olive oil. Place 1/2 of the meatloaf mix in the pan and flatten it out.
  4. Add the three different types of cheese. Make sure you leave at least 1″ border around the dish so the cheese doesn’t ooze out that much when it’s in the oven.
  5. Sprinkle the sliced scallions on top of the cheese.
  6. Then add the other half of the meatloaf mix on top. Make sure this top layer covers EVERYTHING (cover the cheese, scallions, et cetera).
  7. Bake in the 350 degrees oven for 50 minutes.
  8. Add sliced tomatoes on top of meatloaf after it’s out of the oven.
  9. Sprinkle some ground black pepper and parmesan cheese on top of tomatoes and bake again for another 10 minutes.

Veal Piccata Meatloaf 

This lemon-scented loaf is delicious! Veal is tender and is considered a delicacy. It is sometimes hard to find ground but your butcher should be able to prepare it for you. This meatloaf is made with ground veal with mushrooms and the flavors of the famous Italian dish veal piccata. 


Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground veal
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 4 oz mushrooms, chopped 
  • 3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teasooon pepper
  • 1/2 lemon slices (approximately 3 slices)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Mix everything EXCEPT for lemon slices. 
  3. Place mixture in a greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pan (I prefer a glass loaf pan for this)
  4. Gently pat down the mixture. Make sure it’s even. Bake for 45 minutes. 
  5. Top meatloaf with three slices of lemon and bake again for about 15 minutes. 
  6. Let it stand in the loaf pan for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
