Philly cheesesteak meatloaf is a next-level take on the classic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. Some days I get a sudden and very serious hankering for Philly cheesesteaks. To satisfy my cravings, I usually just make the famous American sandwich at home OR whip up this meatloaf recipe. I can vouch that this version delivers the classic flavors of a Philly cheesesteak sandwich!

This unique meatloaf recipe lets you enjoy the taste of Philly cheesesteaks in the form of meatloaf. Much like the sandwich, meat and cheese are the main stars here. Instead of thinly-sliced beef, however, I used ground beef. As far as cheese options go, some probably prefer mozzarella or American cheese. But as a nod to the classic Philly cheesesteak, I used slices of provolone cheese.

To capture the flavors of the iconic sandwich, I also made my meatloaf with green bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Of course, let’s not forget about the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce for an extra umph of flavor. With these simple ingredients, you can whip up one of the best meatloaf recipes out there!

The best part about this meatloaf recipe with cheese is that it is super easy to pull off! Simply saute the veggies, combine everything in a bowl, shape the loaf, and stuff it with provolone. Pop the beef and cheese meatloaf in the oven, and let it bake. To hold your meatloaf together, add breadcrumbs and eggs to the ground beef mixture.

Use keto breadcrumbs to make a low-carb version or skip the breadcrumbs altogether. If you love bacon, a Philly cheesesteak meatloaf wrapped in bacon will make the dish extra savory! Make sure to top your meatloaf with more provolone cheese halfway through for a gooey, cheesy melt on top. Yum.

Another great thing about this Philly cheesesteak meatloaf recipe is that it makes a big batch. Perfect for family dinners! My meatloaf- and sandwich-loving family love, love, love it so much. And I know you will too! Make sure to serve with some mashed potatoes on the side for a truly filling meal.
