I got this recipe from a LandOLakes cookbook. It has become a family favorite. It doesn't have a lot of spicies or seasonings but you could customize it to fit your tastes. It is a simple tasty dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350.
  2. Combine beef, sausage, bread crumbs, sauce, pepper, and egg in medium bowl.
  3. Cut cheese into either 6 large cubes or 18 small cubes.
  4. Form meat mixture into 6 seperate loaves.
  5. Insert either 1 large cube or 3 small cubes into each loaf.
  6. You may have to reshape loaf around cheese.
  7. Put loaves onto ungreased baking sheet.
  8. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes (depending on thickness) or until loaves are no longer pink in the middle.
  9. Don't worry if some of the cheese comes out during the baking-it happens.

This was very good. I added some finely chopped onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic, and I baked them up in a muffin tin, then served them over top spaghetti, with more spaghetti sauce drizzled over top. I was kind of sad that the mozarella didn't stay inside the meatloaves, but it didn't affect the taste at all- they were wonderful. Hubby inhaled his, and went back for 2nds, and without me asking him what he thought, told me this was definately a "make again" recipe. Thanks so much for posting.

These were so easy to put together on a night I was rushed to get dinner on the table. Served them with spagetti and the kids loved them almost as much as I did. Easily can adapt the recipe to your own spices/taste. UPDATE This has become a staple in our home. Thanks so much *Z* for an awesome recipe!
