A 'stuffed' meatloaf made with beef, pork, cheese, eggs, soup mix and bread crumbs. Mozzarella cheese jazzes up a classic.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
- ground black pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl combine the beef, pork, soup mix, eggs, bread crumbs, pepper and water. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese. Mix well and spread half of mixture into a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Spread remaining 1 1/2 cups cheese over meat loaf mixture. Top with remaining half of meat loaf mixture.
