Cheeseburger Meatloaf

We've been trying meatloaf lately. I didn't make it before because it uses a lot of meat and you have to cook it in the oven, but because of all the cooking these past several weeks I've needed some more dishes to make!

Here's one with a new twist on the old favorite. I'll be giving this one a try real soon.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

2 lb. ground beef
3/4 C. fresh bread crumbs
1/2 C. minced onion
2 eggs - beaten
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
3 C. shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, onion, eggs, salt and pepper, and mix well. Pat out meat mixture into a 14x18 inch rectangle on a piece of wax paper. Spread cheese over the meat, leaving a 3/4-inch border around the edges. Roll up jelly roll fashion to enclose the filling and form a pinwheel loaf. Press beef in on both ends to enclose the cheese. Place in a 10x15 inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 1 hour, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Michele, also try wrapping crescent roll dough on the outside of the meatloaf. That too adds to a better taste.
