  • For the stuffing: Preheat oven to 275 to 300 degrees F.
  • Spread the cornbread crumbs on a sheet pan and let toast for about 20 minutes, or until lightly toasted and dry. Turn oven up to 350 degrees F.
  • In a skillet brown the bacon until crispy. Drain. To the same skillet add the red pepper, jalapeño, and garlic and cook until soft.
  • In a bowl, combine the cornbread crumbs, bacon, and vegetable mixture. Add parsley and salt and pepper, to taste. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • For the meatloaf: In medium skillet over medium heat add oil, red onions, jalapeño and garlic. Cook until caramelized, remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a bowl combine the meat, salt, pepper, parsley, thyme, mustard, ketchup Worcestershire, and eggs and thoroughly mix.
  • Divide the meat mixture in half.
  • Shape 1 half into a rectangle, creating a canoe, and then loosely fill with stuffing. Do not pack it inches.
  • Use the other half of the meat to fully enclose the stuffing.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
  • Layer the cheese slices on top and bake for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Cut into thick slices and serve.
