  2. Spread mustard over loaf to within 1 in. of edges. Layer with sauerkraut, six slices of corned beef and 1/2 cup Swiss cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling foil away while rolling. Seal seam and ends.
  3. Place meat loaf seam side down in a shallow 1-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes. Top with remaining corned beef and cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Using two large spatulas, carefully transfer meat loaf to a serving platter. Yield: 2 servings.

"I used panko bread crumbs and Instead of mustard I used thousand island dressing...turned out fantastic. Also, I?ve never made a rolled meatloaf before. Rolling it wasn?t too difficult but slicing it and serving it was a bit of a challenge, it fell apart a bit. Still yummy though. I recommend it."

"This meat loaf is wonderful! I used 1/2# hamburger, 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs, sprinkled caraway seeds over the shredded cheese and cooked it a bit longer. I also served it with Thousand Island dressing. My husband and I really enjoyed it and I will definitely be making this again!"
