One of the things that I remember my Mom used to make that I looked forward to was her meatloaf. She didn’t have a fancy recipe and back then there were no computer, if you can believe that! Recipes came from other people passing them too you or from magazine articles. For me, there is nothing like a meatloaf that has some bell pepper in it and I love to smother it with Ketchup much like how I like my french fries. I hope that you will enjoy this delicious alternative that I believe will have you coming back for more.
Lipton..”as mentioned earlier, this French onion recipe takes the goodness of French onion soup and puts it in meatloaf. So when you work with this recipe, you’ll have meatloaf stuffed with cheese and onions caramelized in red wine, as well as topped with sauce made with beef broth, more red wine and cornstarch.

It’s quite a decadent meatloaf, if you ask me, and the recipe is from Brianne of Cupcakes & Kale Chips. French Onion Soup au Gratin Stuffed Meatloaf definitely combines the best of two comfort foods. Back in June I told you why French Onion Soup is such a comfort food to me, and those stuffed meatballs were huge hit with both my own family and families of readers who I heard from all over the country. But let’s be honest – stuffing cheese and onions into meatballs can get a bit tedious.
Stuffing those caramelized onions, enhanced with some reduced Gallo Family red wine – in this case the Cabernet Sauvignon, though Merlot or Pinot Noir work equally well – and gooey mozzarella cheese inside a meatloaf was a stroke of brilliance, if I do say so myself. Then covering it in that soup-inspired gravy and more cheese – you really can’t go wrong!”
I always found it funny that besides the food there is actually songs by a singer named meatloaf! I really do enjoy his music, and if you have not heard of him, you should check him out. Here are some things that make a better meatloaf:
- putting a sauce or gravy over it
- making them into muffins instead of a large loaf
- you can make the recipe turkey
- how about making a sandwich with the leftovers
- using a special pan that allows the fat to drip away
Here are some meatloaf pans that you might like to add to your kitchen.
