My kids and I absolutely love Bob Evans’ Macaroni and Cheese on it’s own, so I knew my family would flip for this stuffed meatloaf.

I combined my meatloaf ingredients together in a bowl, then shaped half of the meat mixture into a free-form meatloaf bowl.

TIP: Use half ground beef and half Bob Evans’ ground sausage to give this meatloaf even more flavor!

You’ll want to make sure that you don’t make the bottom and sides too thin, as it will have issues holding up once it’s baked.

Combine the macaroni and cheese with some mozzarella cheese and then scoop it into the meatloaf bowl.

Top the meatloaf with the remaining meat mixture, pinch the sides closed and then bake.

  • Author: Shawn
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 50 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings 1x
  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: American
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup finely diced onion
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup honey bbq sauce
  • 1 cup Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

For the topping:

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp yellow mustard

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and lightly spray with non-stick spray then set aside.
  2. Combine the lean ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, onion, garlic powder, parsley, salt, pepper and honey bbq sauce in a large bowl, kneading the mixture until fully combined.
  3. Take half of the meat mixture and shape it into about an 8”x4” loaf in the center of the casserole dish. Gently press down in the center of the loaf, creating a small cavity in the middle, leaving the sides about 1 inch thick.
  4. In a separate bowl mix together the Bob Evans macaroni and cheese with the mozzarella cheese, then pour into the small cavity in the meat mixture. Use the remaining meat mixture to top the loaf, making sure to enclose the macaroni and cheese by pinching the sides closed.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes then remove from oven and increase temperature to 400 degrees F.
  6. In a new small dish combine the topping ingredients and then pour/brush over the top of the meatloaf. Return to the oven for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until meatloaf is cooked through and topping is bubbly.
  7. Let meatloaf stand for at least 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and enjoying.

    1. I’ve never made my meatloaf in the crock pot before, but I’m sure it would work. Just make sure you cook it until the internal temperature of the meatloaf is about 160 degrees F.

    This is by far the best meatloaf! I’ve made it many times for my friends and family, no left overs are ever left. I even made one for my office at work to try and each of them requested the recipe!

    I’m looking to cut down on the amount of greasy beef in my household (where I am lean beef is incredibly expensive), could I possibly use ground pork instead? I’d love advice before wasting precious meats, as they are pricey. Thanks so much

    I’m going to make this on Tuesday, I was wondering if you put the mac and cheese into the meat mixture straight out of the package or if you microwave it a little bit first. Thanks in advance 🙂

    Baking now … Super excited! I used 4 lbs of meat and it’s huge!!! I added the BBQ sauce to the topping mix! No leftovers here! Thank you for sharing and I can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

  7. Sheila Bradley

    This looks fabulous ~ am going to try it tonight. Was wondering if you could make them up, and freeze them to bake at a later date ??

    1. Hi Sheila, I have not tried that before, but my best guess would be to make these fresh. You could always try freezing the meatloaf after it’s been prepared though!
