1 hour 15 minutes
Serves 4-6
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Harmons Jalapeno Cheddar Cheeseball
  • 1 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil and lightly spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment, add onion, celery, and carrot and pulse until finely chopped.

When oil shimmers, add chopped vegetables and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Place cheeseball in center of a piece of plastic wrap. Collect ends of plastic and roll until cheeseball forms a long, thin cylinder.

In a large bowl, add vegetables, beef, pork, Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, and eggs, and season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, combine mixture until evenly blended. Place half of meat-vegetable mixture into loaf pan and form making a wide and long indentation in center of meatloaf.

Unwrap cheeseball and place in indentation of meatloaf. Place remaining half of meat-vegetable mixture, sealing cheese inside meat. Slather ketchup on top of meat in an even layer. Bake until meat reaches an internal temperature of 155°, 45-60 minutes.
