Cheesy Stuffed Meatloaf

We had Jodi’s baptism today and got plenty of good food to eat.  I was hesitant to cook a big dinner, but it’s later in the day and meatloaf had it’s name all over our dinner plate.

If it’s one thing I can get everyone to eat is something stuffed with cheese!  And I usually make my meatloaf in the slow cooker, but found this on Pinterest (as I have many great pictures and recipes) and thought I’d give this a try.  Mostly the same ingredients, but done a bit different.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup of Italian Style bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, divided
  • Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  1. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, bread, eggs, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix with your hands until well blended. Place on a 12- x 16-inch piece of wax paper and pat firmly into a 10- x 12-inch rectangle.
  1. In a small bowl, combine cheese and scallions; mix well. Sprinkle cheese mixture evenly over ground beef. Roll up jelly roll-style, starting from the short end, by lifting wax paper and removing the paper as you roll. Seal ends well. Place seam-side down in prepared baking dish.
  1. Pour half of barbecue sauce over beef roll and bake 45 minutes. Remove from oven, pour remaining sauce over roll, and return to oven 10 to 15 minutes, or until no pink remains. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes. Slice and serve.

I only put the scallions on top of MY side of the loaf because, well is there really a reason to say why!!

I love a great hearty meal to end the weekend with.

Have a great week.

Slow Cooker Meatloaf

Even though I did the cooking on this, Patricia gave me the recipe so I have to credit her for this one. This meatloaf has lots of flavor and it is soo moist. Since it’s a Patricia recipe, my measurements aren’t exact, I just eyeball it, so much of the list below is a guesstimate.
Yum! Thanks Patricia!

Slow Cooker Meatloaf

1 & 1/2 lbs of ground meat. I like to use a beef/pork mix they sell as Meatloaf mix. I think Patricia uses ground turkey. Whatever you prefer
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped or through the press
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can of mushrooms
salt & pepper
seasonings if you like. I love Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash.
Havarti cheese,shredded, about half a chunk (I like to experiment and get different kinds with chives or herbs or whatever)

Mix the all ingredients – except the cheese – until combined. Divide mixture into two sections. Place one section in the slow cooker to cover the bottom. Make the sides a little higher than the middle. Place the cheese in the indent in the center of the meat. Cover with the remaining portion of meat mixture. Try to press the sides together a bit so all the cheese doesn’t all leak out when this cooks. Set the cooker on low for about 4 hours, until no longer pink in the middle. About 10 min before serving I put additional cheese on top so it’s all melty.
