There are very few recipes from his mom that my husband insists I make and make it THAT WAY. Number One: Pumpkin cookies. Number two: Summer Bow-ties. Number three: Meatloaf. For Mr. V (yes you all know our last name now but I still don’t want his student to be able to Google him), thou shalt not make the meatloaf without cheese. It shall not have ketchup, nor shall you insert an herb of any kind. ONLY THIS WILL DO.
I won’t tell anyone if you adjust this to your tastes. I’ve actually made a non-cheesy version into Meatloaf Muffins when I was eating dairy-free because of nurslings, and then I used Dijon mustard and thyme. But really, if you use a nice, very sharp cheddar, the meatloaf has plenty of flavor.
My husband gets so excited when I make meatloaf it’s ridiculous. I make it pretty much every time we’re on break and the dining hall is closed. And thankfully, since it’s covered with cheese, the kids will eat it, too! They don’t know they are supposed to hate meatloaf.
Do you like meatloaf? What’s your favorite recipe for it? I love this, and I also love the grilled meatloaf at Logan’s. Yummmm.
