Philly Cheese Meatloaf

After we enjoyed last menu’s Meatloaf Parmesan so much, I decided to attempt another twist on meatloaf. This time my inspiration was a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Like the Meatloaf Parmesan, it was a hit!

Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf is officially our new favorite meatloaf in our house. We’ve been on an everything Philly Cheesesteak kick through the summer and this meatloaf is just replacing our previous favorites.

We have a go-to meatloaf recipe we’ve used for years and a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf (this is coming in the fall). This recipe is 100% better than that one and I LOVE that one. So take that recommendation as seriously as you want.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 lb. ground meat
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • Several dashes salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 slices provolone cheese

HOW TO MAKE:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a skillet, sauté the onion and pepper in the oil until tender. Combine these veggies with the remaining ingredients except the cheese in a bowl. Place half of this mixture into a greased loaf pan and top with 3 of the slices of provolone cheese. Repeat so you have two meat-cheese layers.

Bake for 45 minutes (the internal temperature of the meat should reach 165°F). Allow the meatloaf to sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Yield: 4-5 servings.
