A different delicious twist on meat loaf that is really easy. Be sure to seal the ends of the meat loaf well or the cheese will be overflowing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, combine the egg, 1/3 cup spaghettie sauce, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
  2. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
  3. On a piece of heavy duty foil, pat beef mixture into a 12-inch by 8-inch rectangle.

Very nice! I love the idea and the ease of this tasty dish! I did make a few changes though: at first, the meatloaf was too wet to hold together, so I mixed in another half cup of breadcrumbs and, just for kicks, a half cup of mozzarella (in addition to what lined the inside). I also used seasoned crumbs and left out the salt and pepper. Great dish! Thanks!

This is the only way I will eat meatloaf. I lost my recipe and its been a while since I made it. I am so happy to have found it. Thanks for posting! This is a MUST try recipe if you don't really care for meatloaf.

I thought maybe by covering meatloaf in crescent rolls that my 7 YO DS would magically love it. He didn't. But my 4 YO DS did, and ate every bite! DH and I both liked it too, and I think with some tweaking of the spices it could be a real family pleaser for 3/4 of us! The presentaton is great, and the recipe is just all around fun! Thanks for sharing!
