My husband loves meatloaf, but it can't be *too* different. He actually liked this one better than my old recipe. I used shredded cheese, but it didn't hold the loaf together too well, so next time I'll use sliced.

I am always on a quest to find something the whole family will eat. This did the trick. We all thoroughly enjoyed this meat-loaf. It was moist but held together well. Very well seasoned and my kids thought the cheese in the middle was really cool. Thanks Nurse Di.

Oh yeah, this was a very, very good meatloaf. I used alternating cheese slices of cheddar and monterey jack. My kids thought the cheese in the middle was cool too. I thought the chili sauce on top was very zesty. We certainly had a nice home-cooked meal thanks to you and your meatloaf.
