How To Make 3-cheese stuffed meatloaf ala lee

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put jellyroll pan with water in oven while preheating.
  • 2
    Prepare large cake rack, to fit jellyroll pan, by covering with aluminum foil and pierce foil for drainage.
  • 3
    In large bowl mix all ingredients, EXCEPT cheeses.
  • 4
    Divide meat mixture in to 4 portions to use individually.
  • 5
    Using a meatloaf pan as mold, use 1 portion of meat mixture to line bottom of pan and slightly up sides.
  • 6
    Fill center of layer with 1/2 the cheeses in this order: grated Parmesan, feta, and grated Muenster. OR, you can mix the cheeses together and use 1/2 the amount for each loaf.
  • 7
    On a piece of was paper, use another portion of the meat mixture to make a layer to fit the pan and lift onto top of cheese, dealing sides to prevent leakage of melting cheeses.
  • 8
    Flip pan over onto the foil covered rack. Shape so it forms a rectangle about 2 inches high.
  • 9
    Do the same to form second loaf using the last of the cheese and the remaining 2 portions of meat mixture, shaping the loaf as the first one.
  • 10
    Place rack into water filled jellyroll pan. The water keeps the drippings from buring and, actually, keeps the loaves moist.
  • 11
    Bake at 350F for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 12
    Remove from oven and let rest at least 15 minutes before cutting.
  • 13
    NOTE: You could also baste the loaves with your favorite sauce while they bake.
