Amish Style Meatloaf


Who doesn’t love an easy and moist meatloaf topped off with cheese? You won’t find any packages of soup mix or cans of anything in this delicious meatloaf. This meatloaf is made from scratch and it tastes like it.






In a large bowl add all of the

ingredients except 1/2 cup ketchup

and 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.



Mix until combined well.



Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.



Put the ground beef mixture

into the loaf pan evenly.



Pour 1/2 cup ketchup on top and

sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.



Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for

60 minutes or until the center of the

ground beef is 155 degrees. Let rest in

the pan for 5-10 minutes. Remove from

the pan, slice then serve.

    • Thank you Rebecca! My husband loves the Lipton Onion Soup recipe so I usually make that. I’m not a lover of meatloaf except for the one I make with Stove Top Stuffing (recipe in my file) and this one! I will eat this one anytime!

  1. This looks good Diane – I’ve never made meatloaf. My mom used to make lasagna meatloaf with lots of cheese on top. I think a nice fat slice of meatloaf on toast is one of the tastiest treats I’ve ever had.

  2. Takes me back to my childhood when meatloaf was a staple. It was a favourite. I’ll have to give this a try and see if it’s as good as mum used to make.

  3. Here is a second great recipe for meatloaf, in less than two months! I will need to do this, either as meatloaf or as filling for stuffed bell peppers, another favourite of mine.

  4. I never thought about putting parmesan and mozzarella cheese in meatloaf. Sounds wonderful! Thank you for finding and following my blog. I look forward to following yours now.

  5. This reminds me of my Mom’s meatloaf but I love the idea of adding the cheeses. I am getting hungry and its only morning.

  6. Made this tonight, and Diane – it tastes like lasagna without noodles! It was delicious – thanks for the recipe – Abe
