Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf: Weekly Menu Plan

Comfort Foods continue to be a hit in our house! Whether it’s a big bowl of Soup or a pot of Chicken ‘n Noodles, there is nothing like comfort food to warm you up! Meatloaf, of any kind, is always a hit in our house and when we paired it with Italian seasonings and stuffed it with cheese, everyone loved it! This Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf is sure to please you and your family and there’s endless uses and ways to vary this versatile recipe. Change up the spice blend a little and add a different cheese for a new taste, Mexican comes to mind.

The nice thing about Meatloaf is the versatility. You can put it together, cover and place in the fridge or freezer for a quick meal later, and the leftovers are great too! Doug loves to make Meatloaf Sandwiches with our leftovers.
