Philly Cheese Meatloaf
2 tablespoons butter
1 small yellow onion diced
1 small green bell pepper diced
8 ounces brown mushrooms minced
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef 80/20 or 85/15
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
8 ounces Provolone Cheese Slices
1 : Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a large loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large skillet, add the butter and the onions and bell peppers, mushrooms, salt and pepper.
2 : Let brown for 1-2 minutes before stirring, then let brown for another 1-2 minutes before stirring again. Let cool for five minutes.
3 : In a large bowl add the ground beef, ketchup,Worcestershire sauce, eggs, panko breadcrumbs and the cooled vegetable mixture.
4 : Add half the mixture to your loaf pan then add half of the cheese to the middle of the pan in a 2 inch wide section (I cut the slices into thirds for the right width).
5 : Cover with the rest of the meat and form into a rounded top loaf shape. Cook for 40 minutes, then pull out of the oven, cover with remaining cheese and put back in.
6 : Cook for 15-20 minutes, then let rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
