  • In a shallow baking dish, pat half of the meat mixture into an 8x4-inch loaf. Make a 1/2-inch-wide indentation down the center of the meat mixture. Arrange the cheese strips in the indentation. Shape remaining meat mixture over the top of the cheese strips; pinching edges to seal. (Loaf size should be 8x4x2 inches.)

  • Bake in a 350 degrees F oven about 1 hour or until no pink remains (thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat loaf registers 170 degrees F).

  • Cut remaining two cheese slices in half diagonally. Place on top of meat loaf. Bake about 3 minutes more or until cheese melts. Garnish with chopped tomato and snipped parsley, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
