How to Make Meatloaf - Stuffed Meatloaf

Stuffed Meatloaf

2 pounds ground beef {or turkey}

3 slices of bread torn into pieces

1 egg

1 cup of milk

1 onion, diced {about 1/4+ cup}

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/4 tsp. rubbed sage

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 cup ketchup or chill or BBQ sauce

8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated

1 cup Italian croutons

10 pieces of bacon


Mix all the ingredients together except for the cheese, croutons, and bacon.  After meat mixture is mixed well split it in half.  With half of the meat mixture form an oblong oval shaped loaf on a roasting pan lined with foil…or a broiler pan. Make a ‘well’/indention in the middle of your oblong loaf. Pour the croutons on top and then the cheese. Try to keep them in your well…some may spill over, it’s OK. Top your creation with the other half of the meat mixture and ‘seal’ the sides and edges. Then, start at one end and wrap bacon slices around and tuck underneath.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours or until done.

Pure yumminess!

Happy Start to your week~

    Am I the only one who is confused? Your ingredients mention bread torn in pieces and Italian bread crumbs…no mention of Croutons. The directions state croutons. Please clarify. Thanks.

      Cherie…thank you for noticing that and bringing it to my attention! I fixed it…my goof. =) You need Italian croutons…for the ‘stuffing’. Thanks for letting me know! Have a great day…..
