Meat Loaf with Cheese

Amy Herald


This is a family favorite. My grandmother gave me a little paper back cookbook when I got married 24 years ago, called The Hamburger Cookbook by Ethel Mayer. I believe that is where the original recipe comes from. Be sure to use good quality cheeses in this recipe. I have it sliced in the deli rather than just buying Kraft singles. It really makes all the difference.
