Stuffed Meatloaf Yum!

So I wanted to spice up my grandma's famous meatloaf and here is how!

Here's what you will need.

3lbs ground beef
1lb spicy ground pork
2 eggs
onion- celery- onion powder- ricotta cheese- mozzarella cheese- fresh spinach- sun dried tomatoes- 3 cans golden mushroom soup- one package fresh mushrooms.
One bag of golden potatoes- butter

Start by boiling your potatoes in a large pot for about 40 minutes or until soft (test with fork)

Also take your three cans of golden mushrooms soup and empty them into a medium sized pan, add 2 soup cans full of water and your package of fresh mushroom, mix well, cover and simmer.

First I mixed these ingredients together.

3 lbs ground beef

1 lb Spicy ground pork

 2 eggs

diced onions about 1/2 cup

diced celery about 1/2 cup or two stalks

Mix in a large bowl

Take a pan and line it with foil

take half of your meat mix and make a rectangle in your pan press firmly together.

In a seperate bowl mix

1 cup ricotta cheese

1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese (2 cups)

As much fresh spinach leaves as you like

some sun dried tomatoes ( I got mine in a pre package in the veggi section)

some mined garlic  (1-2 tbsp)

onion powder and salt and pepper to taste

once you mix these up well, smush them together in the middle of your meat loaf

then add another layer of meat on top make sure to squish the edges together.

Bake at 375 for about an hour or until the top of your meatloaf is a dark brown.

By now you potatoes should be nice and soft, drain rinse and throw in a large bowl.  I add one stick of butter, salt and pepper to taste and minced garlic about a teaspoon if you like and use my hand mixer until I have mashed potatoes.

I like to slice everyone a nice slab of meat loaf, add a nice helping of potatoes and then cover with your golden mushroom sauce! ENJOY!
