This sounds like a delicious meatloaf recipe with shredded cheddar cheese as an ingredient. Maybe this is a meatloaf version of a cheeseburger. If I made this, I would use lean ground beef, skim milk, and reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. Serve this main dish with mashed potatoes and green beans, and you have a complete meal.

You have 4 ingredients that is not in their meatloaf, cheese, brown sugar, milk and mustard. The bread in it is biscuits and there is green peppers and tomatoes. I worked there. I made plenty of these for 8 1/2 years.

Cracker Barrel meatloaf has green pepper AND tomatoes in it. Dont know if I can trust the rest of this recipe if they left out two major ingredients.

The recipe is supposed to have 1/4 cup minced green pepper.

I think Cracker Barrel's meatloaf has green pepper in it.
