I thought I’d show you how to do it step by step the basic easy meatloaf recipe, stuffed with cheddar cheese, yellow bell pepper and kapia pepper, a delicious dinner. It is a recipe loved by everyone and well known, in countless variations, this being closer to my soul.

As you know, meatloaf is a dish of ground meat that has been combined with other ingredients, after that is pan-formed by cooking it in a loaf pan. If the most common version is with minced beef, today I will choose the pork mince, which I think is juicier and more delicious.

If you want, you can also combine 50% pork with 50% beef, it will be just as tasty, it is important in my opinion to put a percentage of pork meat in meatloaf.

Also, in the area of Eastern Europe, it is fashionable for the meatloaf to be filled with hard-boiled eggs, I gave up this option and chose cheese and peppers for it. Through this basic easy meatloaf recipe, as well as the best turkey meatloaf recipe, they have become the family’s favourites.

What Ingredients to Use in Meatloaf?

We need first of all minced pork, with a little fat in it, about 800 g, but as I said you can also use a mixture of pork and beef.
