Ingredients

For Glaze

For Stuffing

  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup gouda cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill

For Meatloaf

  • 1-½ pound ground meat (beef, turkey, chicken, elk, deer, or antelope)
  • ½ pound ground pork sausage
  • ½ cup THM Baking Blend
  • cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 or 2 shallots, minced
  • 3 cloves (or more) garlic, minced
  • 1 whole egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil OR 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley OR 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried mustard
  • 1 teaspoon mineral salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper, aluminum foil, or a silicone mat; set aside.
  • Prepare a loaf pan by lining it with plastic wrap; set aside.

For Glaze

  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the glaze ingredients; set aside

For Stuffing

  • In a medium bowl, mix together all of the stuffing ingredients; set aside.

For Meatloaf

  • In a medium to large bowl, thoroughly mix together all of the meatloaf ingredients.

Assembly

  • Fill the plastic wrap-lined loaf pan with HALF of the meatloaf mixture. Press an oval-shaped indentation down the center lengthwise.
  • Press all of the cheese stuffing mixture into the indentation.
  • Pour in the remaining meatloaf mixture and press down, leveling the top.
  • Place the lined baking sheet upside down onto the the top of the loaf pan and invert everything. Remove the loaf pan and the plastic wrap; you should now have a neat loaf shape on the lining of the sheet pan.
  • Brush half of the glaze mixture on the top and sides of the loaf.
  • Pop in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, more or less, until a thermometer inserted into the meat in various locations reads 165° F.
  • Remove from oven and brush on the remaining glaze. Return to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Cut into 1-inch slices and serve.

Notes

Be versatile with the cheese. You can use literally ANY kind of cheese, just make sure it totals about 1 cup.
