American Cheese Meatloaf

American Cheese Meatloaf

This is as "All American" as meatloaf can get! It got rave reviews from Cliff, James, Zack and Josh. Of course, Pam and I loved it. And, when little Aaron gets bigger, no doubt he'll love it, too!

Serves 6

16 ounces ground 90% learn turkey or beef
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon dried fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Healthy Request Tomato Soup*
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/8 teaspoon black peper
3 (3/4-ounce) slices Kraft reduced-fat American Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine meat, bread crumbs, onion, green pepper, and 1/3 cup tomato soup. Mix well to combine. Pat mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Stir mustard, parsley flakes, and black pepper into remaining tomato soup. Spread soup mixture evenly over partially baked meatloaf. Evenly arrange cheese slices over top. Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until meatloaf is cooked through and cheese has melted. Place loaf pan on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Cut into 6 servings.
