This is a tasty twist to the traditional meatloaf. It is one of my families favorites!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 3x7 inch loaf pan.

  • Beat the eggs in a bowl to mix. Whisk in the cracker crumbs, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and sage. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the Swiss cheese to use as a topping, and stir the rest into the egg mixture along with the ground beef. Pack the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). About 2 minutes before the meatloaf is ready, sprinkle with the reserved Swiss cheese, and return to the oven until melted.

Delicious! Will be making this again for sure. I didn't have sage so I used some thyme and all purpose seasoning turned out great.

It seemed a little dry and kind of came out like a brick. The crackers didn't do much for flavour...I thought it would give the meatloaf a slight buttery taste but they didn't. I probably wouldn't make this again.

I will start by saying that I do not like meatloaf. I made this because my husband likes meatloaf and loves swiss cheese. The only thing I changed was adding some zucchini squash and carrots that I had run through the food processor. I used the 7% fat ground beef and still had quite a bit of grease that I poured out of the pan maybe from the cheese. The meatloaf did not slice neatly and looked pretty unappetizing so I was prepared for us to look for an alternative dinner. I was wrong it was really good (and remember I don't like meatloaf). My husband took one bite and said "This may be one of my favorite meals that you make." Wow!! I'll definitely make it again.

I put a couple strips of bacon across the top of it and we all loved it. I could tell that this meatloaf would have tasted wonderful even without the bacon.

How great is this meatloaf?! Love the idea of Swiss cheese... in fact just about ANY melted cheese topping on a meatloaf makes my mouth water. A winner!

This was very good next time I will make it with about a 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese and a different kind of cheese the Swiss just had too strong of a flavor for me even though I usually love Swiss cheese!

WOW! This was awesome! My husband (who is a meatloaf LOVER) raved about it while eating! I did alter the recipe just a tad. I didn't have any "buttery crackers" but I did have saltines. So I crushed about 20 and melted a half stick of butter and mixed the two. I also didn't have shredded swiss but I had deli slices! So in the meatloaf I used a parm/oreg cheese blend. And on top I used sliced swiss to melt! Also I used thyme instead of sage and garlic powder instead of chopped garlic. I also added some savory seasoning for added flavor! All in all this was an excellent dinner! Quick Easy and GOOD! Great recipe thanks so much!

Just delicious! Made it with half ground turkey and half ground beef - a bit healthier.
