This meatloaf is BOMB. You make the meatloaf, as you normally would. But then you roll out the meatloaf on a piece of parchment paper...rolling it into a flat rectangle. Then you add shredded cheese and roll it up like a jelly roll. Then, place the loaf pan upside down on top of the meatloaf and flip it over, removing the parchment paper. Then you bake it and top with favorite cheeseburger condiments! YUM!

Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, minced onion, garlic powder, bread crumbs, eggs and mix well.
  3. Set out a large rectangle of parchment paper and press the meatloaf into a rectangle shape, with the short side the length of the loaf pan. It will be about 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the meatloaf and then carefully roll up the cheese into the meatloaf, like a jelly roll bread.
  4. Remove the parchment paper and place the rolled meatloaf into the pan. (I turn the pan upside down over the meatloaf and then flip it rightside up.)
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes, or until beef is cooked in the middle. Brush with ketchup or BBQ sauce on top, once it’s baked.
  6. Prepare the salad.
  7. Prepare the mashed potatoes.
  8. Serve Cheeseburger Meatloaf with salad and mashed potatoes.
