Stuffed Meatloaf!

I was looking around online and found a recipe called "Messy Meatloaf", it looked really good, but as always, I can't seem to leave a recipe alone without messing with it, so I tweaked it here and there and came up with not so much a loaf, but more of a flat loaf.

STUFFED TURKEY MEATLOAF

In a large bowl, mix together turkey, beef, egg, bread crumbs, mushrooms, seasoning and salt.

Spread some more spaghetti sauce on top and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Bake for about an hour or until meat registers at 170 degrees.

  6. That looks great Sandra. I used to do a rolled meatloaf for my kids that tasted like pizza. I haven't made it in a long time. Your meatloaf looks incredibly delicious!

  11. I always want to make your recipes but I was in such a "funk" for awhile I kind of stopped cooking dinner pretty much altogether...

    I made this last night (to have for dinner tonight and Thursday!) We sampled it and it was FAB.U.LOUS!!

    I also just ordered that Farm Chicks cookbook.

    Now that I'm feeling better, I'll be making more home cooked meals!
