Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatloaf Recipe

Meatloaf is always one of those quick and easy meals. It doesn’t take much to make it, and there are about a bajillion ways to make it. But I have never had it anywhere outside my family with mozzarella cheese inside, and I won’t eat it any other way. For me, the cheese is what makes it so good. So maybe no one else does this and I am giving away a ‘secret family recipe’. If so, sorry family!! This recipe makes a huge loaf, and it reheats really well for leftovers the next day. We often make this during the week so we have leftovers for lunch for a day or two, especially for Justin to bring to work.
