A Quarantining comfort food! Full disclosure, my mom never made meatloaf. But if she did, I would have wanted it to taste like this, juicy, tender and oozing with cheese. I only started making meatloaf a few years ago as my hubby frequently requests it. I’ve experimented with different recipes and gone rogue, turning out Caprese meatloaf stuffed with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil and my absolute favorite, a patty melt meatloaf stuffed with swiss cheese, mushrooms and carmelized onions - DREAMY! But the other day my boo was like, “Can you make a normal meatloaf please?” I tried my best, got my super American on by including some key meatloaf realness ingredients like ketchup, but in the end I HAD to stuff it with mozzarella and my husband concurred that this was the right move and that I had created his most favorite meatloaf ever.
So slap on your mask, social distance yourself to the grocery store and get what you need to serve up this simple and delicious quarantine delight!
