I made the Cheesy Stuffed Meatloaf and my son husband love it. My son was amazed by how the cheese looked so pretty in place when you slice it. The taste was delicious and flavorful. I loved how the barbecue sauce brought that meatloaf to a whole new level. I always make two meatloaf so I could freeze one but a-day-and-a-half later I had to thaw out the other meatloaf because the first one wasn't enough. It's that good. I would recommend everyone to try this recipe and see for yourself how good it is!

I was told this was the best meatloaf to date!! I followed the recipe exactly and it was delish.....I made it ahead so I could reheat the next day, doesn't work that well because of the cheese, but that day I did bake it...oooh it looked so good!...This is a keeper

I added a cup of shredded cheddar and a cup of sliced scallions to the meat mixture. I put the three slices of white bread in the blender to make fresh bread crumbs. When formed on the waxed paper, I first slathered barbeque sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray's) over it, then sliced scallions, then shredded cheddar (about a cup, more if you like a lot of cheese), then rolled it up and sealed the edges. I used ground chuck, which has a lot of fat, so I used a turkey baster to suck the melted fat out of the pan after it was cooked. I've made it with both cheddar and mozzerella, but the cheddar was tastier. I have already made this meat loaf more than six times, it's that good!

When I make this, I add about one cup of shredded cheddar to the meat mixture, along with a cup of sliced scallions. After I shape it on the waxed paper, I first cover it with barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is the best), then sliced scallions, then finely grated cheese (probably about a cup or so). Then roll it up and seal the ends. I usually use ground chuck, and I use a turkey baster to get the melted fat out of the pan after it's cooked. I have also used shredded mozzerella in place of the cheddar, but the cheddar has more taste. I make fresh bread crumbs with the three slices of white bread by using a blender rather than tearing the bread up, I think it mixes in better as crumbs than it does with torn up pieces.

tried this with coby-jack cheese (what was in fridge), and topped it with salsa. I served it with rice my husband son really enjoyed it. next time out, I will follow recipe closely.

After reading the reviews, I will be making this tomorrow. Sounds so good.

Awesome!!! I like to add Lipton onion soup mix as well.

spaghetti sauce is what my mothers recipe calls for in her cheese filled meatloaf

I love meatloaf, and this is just another wonderful variation to try.

This was delicious! My husband and son said it was the best meatloaf they had ever had. It was even easier to make than I thought it would be and the combination of the Cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce was so good! Definitely a keeper!

My family does not generally like meatloaf of any kind, but LOVED this one!

Good recipe, my husband actually commented that is was better than my normal meatloaf.

probably the best meatloaf I have ever made!

My husband does not eat mustard. Can you taste the mustard in this recipe?

I added a little extra mustard but even then it only enhanced the taste, so no mustard does not come thru


I also put a few slices of deli ham in the middle with the cheese. Tastes good.

What do you think?What is scallions

scallions are just the green top of green onions. :)

Meatloaf with cheese add is absolutily delicious.

My son would never eat meatloaf but he tryed this and asks for it all the time. It is easy to make and everyone loves it!!! I have told my friends about it and they love it too!!!

I loved eating that delicious beautiful meat loaf. I have never tasted a meatloaf as good as this one turned out. Cheesey meatloaf. Easy to make and easy to bake and eat. I would give it higher then 5 stars. phyllis kesling, adrian, MI.

This turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. I used parchment paper ( as I had that) instead of wax paper. It was a real treat and I already am having requests to make it again =). I combined it with the suggested garlic/rosemary potatoes ... so so yummy!

I can't eat ground beef or pork, and was wondering if I could use ground turkey instead, and if so, what is the cook time?

i make 2 turkey meatloaves that go over well,to get a beefy taste i add 4 tblsp A1 sauce, nextone i use a cup of stop stuffing for 2lbs stuffing

so sorry, meant to say 1 c dry stuffing with 2 lbs grnd turkey

Jagnecki 1032513 Mar 09, 2012 oh goodness, i forgot to list the person that i was asking help from, so i have entered the name at the top.. thanks OMG! This recipes is a Keeper as we call it in our house. In the recipes it calls for torn bread, I believe, I used bread crumbs instead. In the hamburger mix, I used all my spices that I like to use.

Hi, i too would like to use the bread crumbs, could you tell me how much you used and what spices are you referring too> help me become a good cook,lol actually i recently met a awesome man, after 35 years of being divorced, his favorite meal, meatloaf... so i am trying to make a meal that will make him happy. love this site.

this meatloaf was awesome. Trippled reicpe for Bible fellowship and was a huge hit! Fed 20 people but beware...nothinng leftover!

This meatloaf was great. A little hard to get off the very end of the waxed paper but a very good recipe.

OMG! This recipes is a Keeper as we call it in our house. In the recipes it calls for torn bread, I believe, I used bread crumbs instead. In the hamburger mix, I used all my spices that I like to use. Man moist and so yummy! Great Recipe Mr. Food

jagnecki, i just posted a message but i forgot to address it to you, it was your email that i needed some help from, thanks

jagnecki 1032513 I hope this is not breaking any rules, but jagnecki could you send me the amount of bread crumbs and spices you used.. i do have a message on site that i sent earlier. if possible could you send it thanks so much, happy day

This was awesome. It was soo moist and tasty. My husband does not like meatloaf and he even tasted it and asked me to make it again.

Made this the other night,my family loved it!

I used lean ground beef but because the cheese had melted the meat loaf was floating in oil and I had to drain it. It didn't look very appetizing because of the oil but it turned out to be delicious.

I have made this for years and my family loves it! The only change I have is I cook it on a broiler pan so the fat drains off and away from the meatloaf.

I make this same recipe, but instead of rolling it up, I cut the mixture in half, make bottom half shaped like a meatloaf, indent the middle, then I cut up a chunk of sharp cheddar cheese, lay it in the indented spot and put the other half of the mixture on top and pinch edges.....ooh its so good!!

I also have been making this for years. My son and husband call it " I love you " meatloaf. Sometimes I've added chopped dill pickle in with the cheese and scallions. Kind of like a cheeseburger without the bun.

I like the pickle idea. I will try that!

adding pickles is such a good idea, thanks for sharing

I am very disappointed that you have changed your method of us sharing your recipes with others. I so enjoyed sharing some of your recipes with my daughters when I found some good ones that I knew they would really love. I have more time to search for them than they do, because of their work and young children. I sure hope you will change back to your old method of sharing recipes.

I just shared this with my daughter via Facebook. It took less than 1 second!

Looks absolutly yummy going to make real quick....

I've been making this for years, with the cheese in the middle. It's a little different than my recipe, but still looks good.

It looks sooo good. I'm running out to get the ingredients right now.

It was so good and lived up regular meat loaf. Great new idea

this is dynamite, I'm making this recipe tonight.....and with the roasted potatoes and spinach as sides.....Can't wait!...YUMMMMM!

excellent recipes!!
