Double Meat Cheese Roll


Yum!  There is just something comforting about meatloaf and potatoes.  I only make this a handful of times a year, but enjoy it fully every time.  My Mom’s recipe is more of a roll than a loaf, stuffed with cheese.  When I made it this time, is I used 1 lb ground beef, and 1 lb of ground deer meat that had been mixed with bacon.  It added a nice smokey flavor, and was not gamey at all.  My husband likes to hunt, and enjoys venison, but I am not really a fan unless I mix it with ground beef, or use it in tacos, with lots of onions, etc.  This was a good way to utilize the meat in the freezer too!

Serves 6-8 for about $1.10/serving
