Lori's Cheesy Meatloaf
This is such a tasty way to make meatloaf.
I know there are thousands of recipe's for meatloaf, and so far -- this is my FAVORITE!
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 sleeve Ritz crackers (you wont use them all)
2 cups shredded cheddar or Colby cheese
Salt and pepper
Plain bread crumbs
Mix hamburger with eggs, Worcestershire sauce, onion, seasonings and add enough bread crumbs to make it firm. Lay out wax paper and put meat mix on top. Spread meat mixture out so it’s in a long rectangle shape the same width as the bread pan. Sprinkle Salt and pepper on it. Next, crush Ritz crackers over the entire rolled out meat loaf, leaving about 2” on each edge. Then, cover the same area with the shredded cheese. Next, roll the meatloaf like a jelly roll, with the waxed paper as your guide, keeping the ends folded in so the filling doesn’t fall out. It should end up a perfect size and fit for a bread pan, with the seam side down. Once you get the loaf into the pan, tuck in the sides. Cover generously with ketchup. Bake 350 about an hour or until clear juices appear and loaf pulls away from the sides.
