Lisa’s Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

I made this tonight and it was a hit. Sharing my recipe with you 🥰

Lisa’s Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

What you need

3 lbs lean ground beef

2 eggs

1 cup of Italian style bread crumbs

2 tsp basil

2 tsp oregano

2 tsp garlic (I use granulated garlic)

2 tsp pepper

2 tsp parsley

A bag of mixed cheese that’s good for lasagna

1 jar of your fav spaghetti sauce, I used Classico 3 cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 9×9 square pan well with cooking spray. In a big bowl mix together everything except for the cheese and sauce. Mix well with hands and place about 1/2 of the meat mixture in your prepared pan. Put 2 good size handfuls of cheese on top and then place the rest of the meat on top sealing the edges together well. I leave about 1/2 an inch of room around the whole loaf. Pour jar of sauce over top, cover with tinfoil and bake for about 45- 50 minutes, remove tinfoil and put some more cheese on top and bake another few minutes until cheese is melted.

Enjoy
