Mushroom-Stuffed Meat Loaf Recipe

I first tried this savory meat loaf recipe more than 30 years ago after seeing it demonstrated on a local TV cooking program. Since then, I've served it time and again to family and guests. The flavorful stuffing sets it apart from the ordinary. -Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, ketchup, salt and pepper. Add beef and mix well. Pat half of the meat mixture into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan; set aside.
  • 2. For stuffing, saute the mushrooms and onion in butter until tender, about 3 minutes. Add bread crumbs, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper; saute until crumbs are lightly browned. Spoon over meat layer; cover with remaining meat mixture and press down gently. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a thermometer reads 160°, draining fat as necessary. Yield: 6 servings.
