If you want a strip of cheese running down the middle, I found that cheese sticks(like string cheese, snacking cheese, indiv. wrapped) are great for that! I have also used them for stuffing chicken breasts. Just happened to have them on hand instead of a block of cheese.

One of the GM also put a hard boiled egg in the center and built the "loaf" around it and then when you sliced it you had this purty egg slice in there.
Yes, there is no "right or wrong" way to make meatloaf.

What you describe here is very similar to a dish called "Scotch Egg" which my Grandmother used to make all the time. Except she took the hard boiled eggs and encase each one separately in the meatloaf mixture, glazed with egg white (I think) and baked. They were delicious but I have never made them myself.

I make scotch eggs, and pretty much just use breakfast sausage, flatten into a patty, wrap around a shelled, hard boiled egg, bake. They are great "to go" food, look nice cut into wedges, too. Serve with a honey mustard sauce or mustard/mayo combo.

good idea!!! We are doing a family dinner before my daughter leaves for Hawaii (giving up all her worldly possessions and going to work on an organic farm) and home made pizza is on the menu. I'll have to try it!

I worked for pizza hut years ago, and that is what they use for their stuffed crust.

That's how my GM made Scotch eggs too. Are you Celtic by chance as well?

I guess it would be closer to a sausage mix than a meatloaf mix, but my GM did it all by hand. I know it was a mixture of beef and pork with seasonings in it. Wish I had her recipe. The modern ones I see don't some close to hers. She was born in Ireland but her mother was Scottish.
