A tasty, cheesy meatloaf...it's easy to make too. This meatloaf is one my family's favorite meals.
2 pounds of raw ground beef
Salt and pepper
Italian seasoning or basil
3 ounces of softened cream cheese
Approximately one ounce of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup of pizza sauce (the sauce I use is 4 carbs per quarter cup)
How To Prepare:
In a large bowl, mix the ground beef with a teaspoon of Italian seasoning or basil, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and season the beef with salt and pepper. Set aside. In a medium size bowl, mix the two types of cheese with 1/2 tsp. (or less to taste) of Italian seasoning or basil, a sprinkle of garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Spray a 9x13 in baking pan with non stick spray. Split the ground beef mixture in half. Form one half into a meatloaf size and shape rectangle and place it in the pan. Spread the cheese mixture over the top of the loaf while leaving about a quarter inch or so on all sides of the loaf. Take the other half of the ground beef mixture and form it into a rectangle that is the same size and shape as the one in the pan. Then, place that rectangle on top of the cheese layer and seal both rectangles together on all sides. "Frost" the fully formed meatloaf on the top and sides with the pizza sauce and sprinkle the loaf lightly with a scant amount of Italian seasoning or basil if desired. Place the meatloaf in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour. The baking time will vary depending on your oven and on how thick you make your meatloaf. When the meatloaf is no longer pink inside, it is ready to serve. This is delicious served with a Caesar side salad or creamed spinach.
