Gorgonzola Stuffed Meatloaf

This recipe for Gorgonzola-Stuffed Meatloaf is a good one! We love meatloaf around our house. I think there needs to be a meatloaf comeback of sorts. I grew up loving meatloaf and therefore make it very often for my own family. A lot the time I hear groans from friends and family members who do not have such fond memories of meatloaf.

Can I be honest thought? I only really like the meatloaf I make. I don’t like the fake green pepper flavor meatloaf sometimes has when you get it at a restaurant or if you use a packaged seasoning mix. I’ve also learned that mixing veal, pork, and beef yields the most flavorful and tender meatloaf imaginable. In fact, I like very little seasoning added in – a little Worcestershire and thyme, a good sprinkle of salt and pepper are all it really needs. Well, and then you can always kick it up a notch and add a vein of Gorgonzola, which makes it even better! When I was younger, I would use cheddar, but the Gorgonzola is infinitely better in every way. Give it a try I say!

This has my husband’s seal of approval – the Gold Star. To serve, I go traditional and add a side of roasted carrots and mashed potatoes. You can’t go wrong!

  3. I was searching for a meatloaf with Gorgonzola recipe tonight and came upon yours. It was wonderful — just what I wanted! My only tweak was to add some chopped spinach. One of my dinner guests said it was her favorite meal ever. Thank you! Cathleen from Virginia
    P.S. The pictures real helped with the cheese layering.

  4. I really enjoyed your recipe but for those who really like the gorgonzolas ive found that 8oz works much better and I crumbled about half into the actual meat while mixing and then did half in the pan with the other half of the gorgonzolas and then covered it with the rest of the meat.
