Recipe by Alisa Lea
I've made this meatloaf for years but I didn't have it written down anywhere so I had to wait til I made it again tonight to measure the ingredients. I'm not usually a huge fan of sauerkraut but my husband likes it so I combined a couple of different recipes to come up with this.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef
- 1 cup rye breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 cup Russian salad dressing or 1⁄2 cup thousand island dressing
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (8 ounce) can sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
- 1⁄2 cup swiss cheese, shredded
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, dressing, egg and pepper.
- Pat into approximately a 10x12 rectangle on a piece of waxed paper.
- Top with sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, and roll up like a jelly roll.
- Seal ends and place seam side down into a meatloaf pan.
- Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until done.
- I usually sprinkle a little more cheese on top and put it back into the oven to melt it.
