Cheeseburger Meatloaf

This meatloaf was inspired by my mother-in-law, Aggi, who I unfortunately never met but undoubtedly would have loved. She was a big fan of pickles in her meatloaf to offer a little zing and a surprise in the middle layer. I’ve taken that a little further adding in cheese, mixing the pickles throughout and giving this meatloaf a perfect game day burger feel. – Patty
