The thought of having Meatloaf for dinner never thrilled my kids. In fact when I was growing up and my Mom would make Meatloaf my sisters and I would be pretty disappointed as well. It was just boring. Well, Meatloaf isn't boring anymore! It can actually be delicious when you get a little inventive and add a few tasty, even healthy ingredients. Here is a recipe that will dress up your Meatloaf and make it enticing.

Ingredients for the Meatloaf

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb. Italian Sausage
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 slices of bread, cubed or 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp rubbed sage
  • Garlic Powder to taste
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Catsup

Make the Meatloaf

  • Brown the ground beef and Italian sausage, drain.
  • Mix in remaining ingredients except for the catsup.
  • Shape 1/2 of the mixture into a loaf
  • Place in an ungreased 8X8 baking dish.

Make the Stuffing and Add it to the Meatloaf

  • Sauté green onions, mushrooms and spinach leaves in olive oil
  • Pull apart 2 pieces of string cheese and place on top of the shaped loaf in the baking dish
  • Spread the sauteed vegetables on top of the string cheese
  • Pull apart the remaining 2 pieces of string cheese and place on top of the vegetables

Ingredients for the Stuffing

  • 3 green onions and stems sliced
  • 4 mushrooms (I use Baby Bella) sliced and cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup spinach leaves, torn
  • 4 pieces of string cheese

Put the Meatloaf Together and Bake It

  • Shape the remaining half of the meat loaf mixture and place on top of the string cheese
  • Press the edges of the Meatloaf lightly together
  • Spoon catsup over the top of the Meatloaf
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the meatloaf is no longer pink inside.

I served this with baked sweet potatoes with a dollop of butter and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
