This recipe is quick because I already have packages of cooked bacon and shredded cheese in my freezer. I just defrost them and add them to the ground beef mixture.—Kimberly Lund, Park City, Kansas

"Cooked this for my son who is on a low carb diet - substituted heavy cream for the evaporated milk and crushed up pork rinds for the bread crumbs. Came out great - I even liked it and I am not a meat loaf lover :)"

"I used what i had on hand at the time, (half n half for the evaporated milk, and Chedder for the Swiss). It came out just fine and my family loved it. I will be keeping this one hand for a easy dinner Kay Matson"

"Honestly, at first when I saw this recipe I thought, who makes meatloaf w/ swiss cheese? But my husband thought the idea was great & asked if I would make it. I followed the recipe exactly and when we had family over, served it up. There wasn't a word spoken while eating & there wasn't a drop left. The meatloaf is delicious and the recipe is a total keeper. Thanks so much for submitting this Kimberly!"

"I have made this several times and this is the only way my husband will eat meatloaf. I enjoy it myself, however I rarely have swiss cheese on hand and rarely buy it, so I will sometimes substitute it with mozzarella cheese. Since it's just my husband and I eating, I will make smaller loaves and freeze the rest. This also cuts the bake time in half."

"Yummmm. I increased the meat to 2 lbs, but spread it out rather than form a loaf in the pan, so the cooking time was the same. It was just the right size for three adults and three children."

"Really good! Next time I think I'll substitute oatmeal for the bread crumbs. We love the taste of oatmeal in meatloaf."
