Ready in 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onions, celery, bell peppers, garlic, green onions, parsley, eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well. On a piece of wax paper, shape meat mixture into a ?-inch thick rectangle. Spread cheese over the meat, leaving a ?-inch border around the edges. Sprinkle bacon over cheese. Roll the meat in a jellyroll fashion to enclose the filling and form a pinwheel loaf. Press both ends to enclose the cheese. Place in a 10? x 15? baking dish and bake for 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 160F. Once baked, sprinkle with additional cheese or ketchup and mustard. Any leftovers make great sandwiches for the next day.
PREP TIME: 1? Hours
Joyce052 6m agoI am not a big meatloaf lover but this was delicious. I added mustard powder and used only red peppers. Came out crunchy outside ,moist inside. Will make this again.
April07showers 2y agoThis was super delicious! A very nice and not too difficult recipe. My husband, myself and a very picky 10 year old all enjoyed it. Will definitely be making this again.
MissXteena 2y agoA bit bland for my taste. Might add some Worcestershire sauce or beef bouillon. Everyone else loved it as-is. Will make again.
glbryant 3y agoI have to admit, I am that person that has to put my own twist on every recipe so here it goes: instead of the two types of bell peppers, I just used one large fire roasted red bell pepper from a jar and I added seasoned salt in stead of regular salt. Also to the meat I added 1 package of dry onion soup mix. The best part was the topping I made. I used about a 1/4 cup of ketchup, 1 1/2 Tbsp of brown sugar, 1 tsp of molasses, a couple splashes of Worcestershire sauce and apple cider vinegar, 1 Tbsp of diced dill pickles, and a teaspoon of dill. In hindsight it was a little sweet so I could have put 2 tsp of prepared yellow mustard or 1 tsp of dry mustard, but it was very good without it if you like a little sweetness. Also, I should have seasoned the bacon when it was cooking with a little ancho chili powder.
Damondirksen 3y agoI added a little diced pickle in it as well. Tasty...I will make it again.

mecstell 3y agoGreat meatloaf! Instead of plain salt and pepper, I added Cajun seasoning (eye-balled it).
23pairer 3y agoHad the neighbors over for dinner, and this was a huge hit. Delicious. Will definitely make this a regular menu item. Great recipe. Served with sourdough thick crust chewy bread, and my corn casserole I'll put in the recipe area.
Joyce052 4y agoGreat recipe. I substituted cream cheese for cheddar and rolled oats for bread crumbs - also was out of eggs so none of that. It was delicious - my husband asked me to make it again
dune773 4y agoThis is a good recipe. For a little more kick try a little chili powder mixed in with ketchup on top while cooking
