Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheese whiz (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (use gluten-free breadcrumbs for a gluten-free option)
  • 4 ounces provolone cheese, solid (optional)
  • 8 slices provolone cheese

Directions:

  1. Prepare the Vegetables: Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the diced onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms, cooking until they are tender and aromatic, about 7-10 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant. Remove from the heat.
  2. Mix the Meatloaf: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, salt, pepper, cheese whiz (if using), Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, eggs, and panko breadcrumbs. Stir in the sautéed vegetables until everything is well blended.
  3. Assemble the Meatloang: Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper. Place half of the meatloaf mixture on the sheet, and create a shallow well in the center. Place the solid piece of provolone (if using) in the middle, then cover it with the remaining meat mixture. Press the edges together to seal, and shape the meat into a loaf.
  4. Bake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Place the meatloaf in the oven and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the meatloaf is thoroughly cooked.
  5. Add the Cheese Topping: Once the meatloloaf is cooked, arrange the slices of provolone cheese over the top. Return the meatloaf to the oven and set it to broil. Broil for 2-4 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Let the meatloaf rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm with your favorite sides for a complete meal that’s sure to impress.
