Italian Meatloaf

2lbs of uncooked Ground Meat
1/2 cup of Onion (or onion powder)
Garlic to taste
Italian Seasonings
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
3 cups of Spaghetti sauce (or Italian tomato sauce pureed)
8 oz of your fav Italian cheese

Directions: Combine first 6 ingredients. Form a meatloaf and place it into your 9x9 pan. Slice your Italian cheese and set aside. Then slice your meatloaf long ways and insert cheese into the middle of the meatloaf. Place top back down onto the meat and seal meat around the cheese. Put sauce in a zip lock baggie and place next to the meat.

Freezing: Use Saran wrap or press and seal over the top of the pan and then Foil it all the way around to ensure air tight. OR if you have space issues, wrap in saran wrap and then aluminum foil and freeze. Store in the freezer up to 2 months.

Cooking: Defrost. Pour sauce over defrosted meat and cook covered at 350 for about an hour or until done.
