Fans of buffalo wings will love this dinner recipe! Buffalo sauce meatloaf, stuffed with blue cheese and glazed with buffalo sauce.
I was taking a peak through my recipe index and realized that most of my dinner recipes are made in a slow cooker. I own a couple of the 6 quart ones (like this one – affiliate link.) And I like to cook a lot of things at one time – the slow cooker is my friend.
I like it so much that I often forget about the oven. Even in the winter, when it could help warm up my home. It’s Chicago, it is cold – I’ll do anything to get warm.
I digress. So, I was going through my recipe index, thinking about dinner and the oven and it came to me. Make a meatloaf. And thanks to my homemade buffalo sauce recipe, make a buffalo meatloaf recipe.
Buffalo Meatloaf Recipe
Don’t be confused, this meatloaf contains a lot of meat, but none of it is buffalo meat. I’m sure you figured it out from the pictures, but when I told my mom I was making it, she wanted to know where I found buffalo meat at the store.
Instead, I used a combination of beef, turkey and pork and my favorite cheese of all, blue. And a lot of it. The buffalo name comes from a healthy dose of buffalo sauce, slathered across the top. Sooo good. If you like buffalo sauce as much as me, you can always use more – don’t be stingy with it.
When cooking, I highly recommend using a thermometer to check the temperature instead of using the time I gave. Every oven is different, as I’m sure you know if you have ever been frustrated with a recipe that took longer or less time to cook than was written.
Chances are, it was your oven cooking differently from the recipe writer’s.
Wow, lots of digression today…. anyway, I cooked this using a baking sheet lined with foil and a quick (very quick) mist of cooking spray. You could also use a baking dish.
