  • 2. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until meat is done (160 degree F).
  • 3. Remove from oven. Transfer to a platter. If desired, diagonally halve slices of provolone or mozzarella cheese. Place three cheese triangles on top of meat loaf. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Makes 4 servings.

Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen Tip

For safety's sake, ground meats (pork, veal, or beef) need to be cooked to 160 degree F; ground poultry (chicken or turkey) should be cooked to 165 degree F. An easy way to check the temperature of ground meat dishes is to use an instant-read thermometer. Insert the thermometer about 1/4 inch into the loaf for 10 seconds.
