Meatloaf Cordon Bleu
2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 small onion, chopped
2 eggs, beaten 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper 4 ounces thinly sliced cooked ham
4 ounces Provolone cheese, sliced
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs,
eggs, and onion. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pat the
meat mixture out onto a piece of waxed paper, and flatten to 1/2 inch
thick. Lay slices of ham onto the flattened meat, and top with slices
of cheese. Pick up the edge of the waxed paper to roll the flattened
meat up into a log. Remove waxed paper, seal the ends and seam, and
place the loaf into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the
loaf is no longer pink inside.
