Cheesy Meat Loaf recipe
Recipe and Photo by: Better Homes and Gardens
Lean ground beef becomes a flavorful meatloaf with pepper, ground nutmeg and purchased pesto. Beer helps, too—though you can use milk or water instead.

What You Need

1
 egg, slightly beaten
3/4
cup  soft rye bread crumbs (1 slice)
3/4
cup  shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese (3 ounces)
3
tablespoons  beer, milk, or water
2
tablespoons  purchased pesto
1/4
 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4
 teaspoon pepper
1
 pound lean ground beef
 Sliced provolone or mozzarella cheese (optional)

Make It

1. In a large bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs; cheese; beer, milk, or water; pesto; nutmeg; and pepper. Add ground beef; mix well. Form into a loaf, and place in an 8x4x3-inch loaf pan.

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.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
