“My hubby likes this recipe, because he LOVES cheese. It's also a really good meatloaf for leftover meatloaf sandwiches. Also a good meal to freeze for freezer cooking. Anyone I've ever fixed this for proclaims it is the best recipe they have ever tasted.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Meat mixture
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 12 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 12 cup chopped onion
  • 12 chopped small jalapeno pepper
  • 12 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup corn flakes (I prefer Special K)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 ounces cheese (I prefer Mozzarella because of the mild taste and texture.)
  • Topping
  • 14 cup ketchup
  • 14 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients except cheese in bowl.
  2. Add 1/2 of mixture to baking dish.
