This meatloaf has everything you'd see on a delicious mushroom and Swiss cheeseburger. I tuck creamy Swiss cheese and sliced mushrooms into the middle of the meatloaf, offering a delicious surprise when you cut into it.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Tear the pumpernickel into pieces, and place into the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times to chop the bread into crumbs.

  • Lightly mix the pumpernickel crumbs, ground chuck, ground pork, egg, onion, diced tomatoes, 1/4 cup of the reserved juice from the tomatoes, green pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce together in a bowl until the mixture is very well combined. Do not over mix, or the meat loaf will be tough.

  • Place half the meat mixture into the bottom of the prepared loaf pan, and gently press to smooth the top. Place 3 slices of Swiss cheese over the meat mixture, and spread the sliced mushrooms evenly over the cheese. Top the mushrooms with the remaining 3 slices of Swiss cheese, and spread the rest of the meat mixture in an even layer over the cheese. Press the top gently to smooth.

  • Bake the meatloaf in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, then remove from oven and spread with the chili sauce in an even layer. Return the meatloaf to the oven and bake until the juices run clear and the chili sauce has thickened into a glaze, about 15 more minutes. Let the meatloaf stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Oh Yes! Pumpernickle in my meatloaf topped by Chili sauce and with Swiss hidden inside. This is "good stuff Maynerd!" Maybe next time I'll even try it with a little hotter version of Chili sauce. I'll try some sautéed fresh mushrooms too. Read More

This is a fantastic recipe. If you are concerned with cholesterol and diet use LOWFAT ground meats or ground turkey and low fat swiss cheese. This is a favorite in my house and very easy to prepare. Read More

I thought this good but the kids didn't like it. I liked the idea of the mushrooms and Swiss cheese in the middle. Not sure about the chili sauce on top though - ketchup would have been a better choice. Read More
