Looking for a quick, tasty, healthy and family-friendly meal? Who isn’t?! We have our favorites here, as I’m sure you do, but even those can get boring after a while. If meatloaf is a standby in your house, you should mix it up and try something new! If meatloaf doesn’t come out of your kitchen, maybe it’s time it did! Especially this kind – the stuffed-with-cheesy-goodness kind.
*side note: the hubby and I went on a movie matinee date and saw The Great and Powerful Oz. That was definitely stuffed with cheesy. See it in 3D if you decide to go. Some of the effects are pretty decent and make the cheese more palatable.
Anyway, back to the meatloaf. Individually sized, stuffed with cheese, topped with ketchup, warm and toasty and ready in less than 40 minutes. I’ll quote the hubby, “Do you smell that? That’s the smell of YUM!” 🙂
