  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • 2

    pounds ground beef

  • ¾

    cup fresh bread crumbs

  • ½

    cup onion, minced

  • 2

    eggs, beaten

  • teaspoons salt

  • teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 3

    cups Cheddar cheese, shredded


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, onion, eggs, salt and pepper, and mix well. Pat out meat mixture into a 14x18-inch rectangle on a piece of wax paper. Spread cheese over the meat, leaving a 3/4-inch border around the edges. Roll up jelly roll fashion to enclose the filling and form a pinwheel loaf. Press beef in on both ends to enclose the cheese. Place in a 10x15-inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 1 hour, or until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Let the meatloaf set 15 minutes before serving. TIP: I discovered a way to simplify the rolling process and had great success. Divide meat mixture into 3 batches and cheese into 2 batches (like a lasagne). Fill the bottom of a 9x13-inch dish with the first batch, sprinkle cheese on top, avoiding the edges. Pat the second batch on top, taking a little care to seal the edges with a spatula. Cheese on top of that. Finally, the third batch of meat on top of that, sealing the edges again. then sprinkle ketchup and mustard overall.
