Yummy Meatloaf

Hmm....it's hard to take an appetizing picture of meatloaf. But trust me - this meatloaf is DELICIOUS!!! I mean seriously how could it not be delicious when it has a whole block of cheese baked in the middle of it?

Serves 4-5


1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 small diced onion
1 small diced green pepper
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 ounce chunk cheddar cheese
1 cup chili sauce


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix together everything except the chili sauce and cheddar cheese. Spray a baking pan with non stick spray and spread out meat mixture into a loaf. Spread the meat mixture in half (the long side) and place the chunk of cheddar cheese in the middle. Close up the meatloaf making sure that there are no seams for the cheese to ooze out. Pour the chili sauce over the meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour.

Let rest 10 minutes prior to cutting.
