This is actually quite and impressive meatloaf! It looks really pretty! You will "wow" your guests....or even just your kids, with this one! It really wasn't hard at all, I promise!
I stuffed my meatloaf with Feta, Green Olives and Spinach, but really, you could stuff this with whatever you like! My husband and daughter LOVE green olives, so I added them! It made them very happy!
Let's get to the good stuff!
Spinach, Feta and Green Olive Stuffed Meatloaf
2 lbs. Ground Beef
3/4 cup of Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1 pkg. Onion Soup Mix
1 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
3/4 cup Feta Cheese
1 9oz. pkg Frozen Spinach, thawed and drained
1/4 cup Green Olives, sliced
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
In a bowl, mix together the first 6 Ingredients.
On wax paper, shape your meatloaf into a rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick or less.
Spread the Feta Cheese on top of your loaf, keeping it 1" from the edges.
Next, spread the Spinach on top of that.
Then, the Green Olives.
Start rolling your Loaf by lifting the edge of the wax paper and gently rolling it.
You may have to press down on your filling as you go so it doesn't "spill out." I did and had no "spillage!"
It will look like this when completely rolled!
Seal it all up!
And place it in your non-stick sprayed Insert!
Spread the topping mixture over the top.
(There would have been a picture here had my camera battery not died!)
Cook on LOW for 6-7 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours
The last half hour or so, remove the lid.
(Mine busted open on top a bit, but it still held together!)
