Bleu Cheese Meatloaf Recipe

ETA:  This is a post from (Jan 13 ’10) and I finally got around to adding photos so I am re-posting it almost exactly a year later 😉

*****************************************************************

I don’t typically make New Years Resolutions but this year I did
resolve that I was going to step out of my boring making-dinner-routine
and start cooking at least one new recipe a week.  Since I work so late
many nights a week, Tuesday seems to be one of the days that work best
for me to cook and we often collaborate these meals with our
neighbors.  Last night I decided to bake a Blue Cheese Meatloaf for a
group of 9 (at the neighbors house) and it was a huge hit.  I was even
told by at least one that “it was the best meatloaf I ever had”.  It
had great texture and packed with flavor.  The bleu cheese melts into
the meatloaf so you don’t get an overpowering taste yet it still
dresses up the meat in the most wonderful way.

This recipe makes twelve servings

  • 1 Lg Onion Diced
  • 4 lbs lean ground beef lean
  • 1 ts ground pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 c bread crumbs
  • 3 tbs mustard
  • 1/2 c light sour cream
  • 4-6 oz Amish bleu cheese crumbles (Danish is much stronger than Amish.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onion. Fry until the onion is translucent (15 minutes).

In a large bowl, mix together fried onions, beef, pepper, salt, dry mustard, bread crumbs, mustard, and light sour cream.

After you have mixed the ingredients very well (use your hands if you have to). Add the

blue cheese and mix in gently.

Pat the mixture down into a 9 x 13inch baking pan

Bake the meatloaf in the oven until it is no longer pink in the center

(1 hour and 5 minutes).

I made mashed potatoes and green beans with almonds as my side dishes.  Yummy!!

    You're welcome Jules.  As I mentioned, I am going to be cooking many more new recipes so I will make sure to take photos and post the recipes when I do! And when you come across easy ones, makes sure to send me links to the recipes as well!

  6. Yummy! I will have to make this to pair with hubby’s Bleu Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes. Meatloaf is one of those meals that is vastly underrated . . . it is quick, easy, and can be altered in so many different ways to make a great meal!
