    2 lb. ground beef

    3/4 C. fresh bread crumbs

    1/2 C. minced onion

    2 eggs - beaten

    1-1/2 tsp. salt

    1-1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

    3 C. shredded cheddar cheese

    Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, onion, eggs, salt and pepper, and mix well. Pat out meat mixture into a 14x18 inch rectangle on a piece of wax paper. Spread cheese over the meat, leaving a 3/4-inch border around the edges. Roll up jelly roll fashion to enclose the filling. Press beef in on both ends to enclose the cheese. Place in a 10x15 inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 1 hour. Makes 8 Servings.


    1.) Use American cheese with ketchup and mustard on top served with dill pickle chips.

    2.) Use Swiss cheese and mushroom topping.


    1-1/2 to 2 lbs. ground beef

    3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

    2 eggs

    1/2 cup milk

    1/3 cup ketchup

    1/2 to 1 cup sugar

    1-1/2 tablespoons horseradish

    1-1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

    1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix

    1/4 cup green peppers (optional)

    1/4 cup onion (optional)

    Mix ingredients and shape into loaf.


    3/4 cup ketchup

    1/2 cup brown sugar

    Mix and cover meatloaf. Bake at 350 F. for 60-90 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before slicing.


    1 lb. ground beef

    1 egg

    1 tsp. minced garlic

    2 tbsp. ketchup

    1 tbsp. mustard

    1/4 c. chopped onion

    Salt and pepper to taste

    1 can Campbell's condensed cream of mushroom soup

    Mix everything except cream of mushroom in a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a baking pan. Pour undiluted cream of mushroom soup over the top of the meatloaf. Poke holes in the meatloaf to let the cream of mushroom soup soak in. Bake for 1 hour at 375 F.

  • Meatloaf is one of my favorite recipes - served with mashed potatoes and whole green beans or steamed baby carrots.


    3 pounds ground beef

    3 large eggs

    1/2 to 3/4 cup Italian style bread crumbs

    1 packet Lipton's Onion or Beefy Onion Soup Mix

    1 can sliced mushrooms - drained

    1/2 cup sliced black olives

    2 tablespoons BBQ sauce

    1 tablespoon A-1 sauce

    1/2 cup salsa

    1/2 cup shredded cheese - I use a combination of Cheddar, Italian Blend and Pepper-Jack cheeses or whatever I have on hand

    Mix all ingredients, form into a loaf in a loaf pan, bake at 350 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours.

    Take your favorite meatloaf recipe, pull out enough to go into a cupcake tin, place a little in the bottom and up the sides of the tin, add about 1/3 tsp of condensed cream of mushroom soup, a very small cube of cheddar or cojack cheese, and place the rest of the meatloaf mixture on top of it, seal the soup and cheese inside and bake. It makes it's own gravy!!! The juices from the meatloaf mix with the soup to thin it a little and melts the cheese. Very good when you cut into it.

    1 1/2 pounds ground beef

    1 c. fresh Italian style bread crumbs

    1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

    3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced

    1 large onion, finely chopped

    1 large green bell pepper, chopped

    1 egg

    1 1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

    1/2 teaspoon onion powder

    1/4 teaspoon pepper

    1 8 oz can tomato sauce

    1 cup ketchup

    1/2 cup water or beef stock (can use bouillon)

    3 tbsp. Balsamic vinegar

    3 tbsp. brown sugar

    2 tbsp. Dijon mustard

    2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

    1/4 c. Parmesan, grated (optional)

    In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, ketchup, Balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and water/beef stock.

    In a large bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onions, green bell pepper, parsley, chopped garlic, egg, seasonings, 3/4 cup of tomato mixture, and optionally, Parmesan cheese.

    Form into loaf. Place into shallow 7 by 10 in. pan or bread loaf tin, lightly oiled. Pour remaining liquid over meat loaf to coat. Bake in a 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for one hour and 15 minutes, basting occasionally with ketchup or your favorite barbecue sauce.

    Optional Variations:

    Choose one:

    1. Eliminate salt, bouillon, and substitute 3 tablespoon onion soup mix. Sprinkle top with tomato soup and crushed crackers instead.

    2. Use old-fashioned rolled oats instead of bread crumbs.

    3. If you have leftover bread, especially Italian or French bread, substitute milk for the water listed in recipe, and soak about 2 cups bread in the milk prior to mixing into the meat mixture. Squeeze out the excess slightly before adding. Substitute this bread for the bread crumbs. After mixing everything together, you can also form this meat mixture into meatballs and fry in 1/2 inch olive oil in a heavy bottom skillet (such as cast iron). If making Italian meatballs, leave out the brown sugar and Dijon mustard, but be sure to use the Parmesan cheese. Season the oil in the pan with 2-3 whole cloves garlic (don't chop it up or it will burn instead of just roasting).

    4. If you're in a hurry, you may use as a substitute 2 cups of barbecue sauce and eliminate the following ingredients:

    1 c. ketchup

    1 8 oz can tomato sauce

    3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

    3 tbsp. of brown sugar

    2 tbsp. Dijon mustard

    2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

    5. Eliminate the sauté crumbs. Sauté this mixture with onion and garlic for 5 minutes and layer a casserole with no-cook lasagna noodles. Place meat mixture to cover noodles. Add a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and:

    1/3 pound ricotta mixed with one egg

    1/4 c. freshly chopped Italian parsley or 1 c. fresh spinach

    1/2 pound grated mozzarella cheese

    Cover with another layer of noodles, and top with 1 large can of tomato sauce mixed with 1/2 teaspoon each basil and oregano. Place in 325 degree oven 60 minutes or until bubbly, basting occasionally with sauce to prevent lasagna from drying out.

    6. Form meat mixture into large doughnut shapes, approximately 6-7 inches across. When forming the doughnut, don't allow the center to actually become a doughnut hole; just thin it out, leaving a well in the center. Optionally, brush with ketchup. Crush 8-10 Saltine or Ritz crackers into crumbs and sprinkle over the doughnut shaped burger, concentrating the excess crumbs into the center. Sprinkle with onion and garlic powder and a liberal dose of soy sauce, allowing a 1/2 spoon or so to form in the well. This can optionally be topped with cheese and canned mushrooms if desired. Place in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes or so, according to size, until the juices run clear and meat doughnut is done. Served with meat drippings as topping, there is no need for a bun. This is a fast and easy low-carb lunch!

    7. Place 3-4 strips of bacon lengthwise along the top of the meatloaf. Garnish with rings of green or red bell pepper and bake as usual. 8. Use your imagination, get creative, and enjoy!
