Stuffed Meatloaf


Meatloaf filled with Stove Top Stuffing (or your favorite) is a delicious, unique and totally different meatloaf than I have ever made before. A fellow blogger, The Belmont Rooster, posted a delicious meatloaf recipe. I decided to give it a try, but like most recipes, I did adapt it a bit. My grandkids are here so I needed to make it kid friendly. My 4 year old grandson asked for seconds.

Please visit my fellow bloggers post and recipe to see how wonderful he makes it. Click on the Belmont Rooster’s link below to see his recipe:


Below is my step by step directions

for how I made my Stuffed Meatloaf!





Spray a meatloaf pan with cooking oil.



In a large bowl add the ground beef.



Add the rest of the ingredients

except the egg, milk and stuffing.

Using your hands combine completely.



In a small bowl slightly

whisk the egg with a fork.



Add the egg to the milk

and whisk together.



Pour egg mixture into the

ground beef mixture.



Combine until the egg is no longer

visible and it is mixed into the meat

mixture. Meat will be wet which will

help make the next step easy.



Place 2/3rd of the mixture into the

prepared meatloaf pan. Form it evenly

up all four sides and on the bottom.



Fill the center of the meatloaf with

all of the prepared Stove Top Stuffing.

Press it down slightly to compact it.



Place the rest of the meat mixture

evenly on top. Press it down

carefully to seal the meat

and stuffing together.



Place into a preheated

350 degree oven for 1 hour.



Keep it in the pan for 10 minutes,

then remove from the pan.



Slice and serve.

    • Oh yes it was delicious! Not just the stuffing was delicious but the meat part was the best meatloaf I have ever had. I don’t know if the herbs from the stuffing help make it so delicious or if it was just what was in the meat but it is definitely a keeper! Thank you David!

    • The meat part was the best meatloaf I have ever tasted. The stuffing tasted like it always does. I was expecting the stuffing to be greasy and it wasn’t at all. I Will definitely be making it again and I would even serve it to company. You should give it a try.

      • I was just wondering since I’ve never had this combination. I’ve only used stuffing with turkey or poultry. Not beef.
        Thanks for your response.

      • Me too Diane. When we visited my grandmother in Toronto back in the day, there was a Jewish bakery in the neighborhood. Canadians eat kaiser buns. They are not soft bread as the kaiser rolls are here; they are more like a baguette – very crusty. So my grandmother’s Italian neighbor always made up spaghetti and extra meatballs and brought that pot down when we visited … I’d get those kaiser rolls and put my meatballs in between – I’d eat that almost every meal while I was there … 🙂

      • Yes indeed. The father moved in with them after his wife passed away – he was a true Italian in that pasta is served at every meal. So they had spaghetti every night … she brought down a huge pot of it. So good – I wish I had one now. No pounds ever appeared after eating all those delightful treats back in the day … sigh.

  1. Very good! Glad you tried it and maybe next time you can use the celery/onion/bread crumb mixture for the stuffing. Great job!

  2. GREAT! I am glad you tried it! Maybe next time you can use the celery/onion/breadcrumb mixture for the stuffing. I also noticed you cooked the bacon before adding it to the recipe. Good idea to use the Stove Top stuffing as an alternative.
