This is definitely not a low-calorie dish, but it is soooo tasty. Not so bad if you have a small portion, everything in moderation as they say.

The first time I made it for my husband, he made the “Ewww, meatloaf?” face, but after trying it he is a meat loaf loving fool! This is best served with white rice. I know most people like baked potatoes or something with meatloaf, but trust me, white rice mixed in with meatloaf is the only way to go.

This tastes kind of like a cheeseburger in a loaf pan. 🙂 It’s particularly good the next day on a sandwich.  I copied this recipe from an old friend’s mother, you will love it!

1 package of ground beef (about a pound)
2 eggs
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced (2 tsp garlic powder also works in a pinch)
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 squirt of ketchup
1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups grated cheese (I use cheddar, you could really use any kind you like)

1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°

In a mixing bowl add ground beef, eggs, onion, garlic, Worcestershire, ketchup, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. Mix well with your best tool– clean hands, or a spoon if you are a more patient person than me.

In a loaf pan, layer half of the mixture. Make sort of a moat in the middle. Add the cheddar cheese. Top with the remaining mixture, and press down around the edges to form seams. Top with ketchup/brown sugar mixtue. Bake for one hour.
