“I've made this meatloaf for years but I didn't have it written down anywhere so I had to wait til I made it again tonight to measure the ingredients. I'm not usually a huge fan of sauerkraut but my husband likes it so I combined a couple of different recipes to come up with this.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground beef
  • 1 cup rye breadcrumbs
  • 12 cup Russian salad dressing or 12 cup thousand island dressing
  • 1 egg
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) can sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 12 cup swiss cheese, shredded


  1. Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, dressing, egg and pepper.
  2. Pat into approximately a 10x12 rectangle on a piece of waxed paper.
  3. Top with sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, and roll up like a jelly roll.
  4. Seal ends and place seam side down into a meatloaf pan.
  5. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until done.
  6. I usually sprinkle a little more cheese on top and put it back into the oven to melt it.
