Meatloaf was a staple for Sunday dinner when I was growing up. Honestly, it was never something to get excited about (sorry, Mom!) Because of this, I hardly ever made meatloaf for my family until a couple years ago when I discovered this stuffed meatloaf recipe. Now meatloaf is something special!
There are three things that raise this meatloaf to the top of the heap in the world of meatloaf hierarchy.
- Mozzarella cheese
- A topping that is to-die-for
Let me show you how this is to be done.
First, you mix together your hamburger, breadcrumbs, onions, egg, and salt. Then you spread it all out, about 1/2-inch thick (or slightly thinner) on a piece of aluminum foil. You don’t want it too thick, or it will be hard to roll. Alternately, you don’t want it too thin, or it will crack and separate when rolling.
Next you layer about 8 slices of deli ham over the top of the meat mixture. Leave a little room at the end.
Then you top the ham with some shredded mozzarella cheese. Don’t put it all the way to the end, or it will leak out when you roll this up.
