MMMmonday - Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaves and a linky!

This recipe came from Publix Apron Simple Meals counter - and we taste-tested it over a year ago, it's one that Robyn makes on a regular basis... and since I'm still breast-feeding my constantly eating son, I'm relying on others to cook...

Cooking spray
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce, divided
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs - or (1/4 cup gf breadcrumbs & 1/4 cup grated parm w/ a shake of Italian seasoning)
1 egg 
1/2 cup frozen diced onions or 1 small onion diced
1 1/4 lb lean ground beef, 
4 sticks mozzarella string cheese or 4 wedges of block mozzarella, cheddar etc


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine 3/4 cup pasta sauce and remaining ingredients (except cheese) until blended.
  2. Divide into four portions; shape around each string cheese, covering cheese completely. Seal tightly so hot cheese will stay inside (wash hands). Bake 20–25 minutes or until 160°F.
  3. Before serving, microwave remaining 3/4 cup pasta sauce on HIGH 1 minute or until hot. Serve.
