This meatloaf is comfort food at it's best and a hearty dinner idea that is delicious served with, green beans, Cheesy Potatoes Casserole or Cajun Corn On The Cob!

Helpful Recipe Tips

It's best to use ground beef that is 90% lean ground beef and 10% fat. It will shrink less while cooking and it will give the meat enough moisture to keep it from drying out and it won't be sitting in extra grease while cooking.

I'm sure adding dill pickles to meatloaf sounds strange but trust me and don't leave them out. Unless you hate pickles of course. But if you like them, the pickles add some crunch and saltiness that really makes it taste like a cheeseburger. 

I recommend freshly grating your own cheese as it melts more smoothly than pre-shredded cheese.

To prep ahead you can make the meat mixture earlier in the day and store in the refrigerated until ready to use.

Press the meat mixture into each cup of a six-cup muffin pan, filling each cup halfway full.

Make a small indention into the meat with your thumb and press one tablespoon of shredded cheese into the meat mixture.

Top the cheese with remaining meat mixture, pressing the edges down to seal the meat around the cheese.
