This Pepper Jack Meatloaf is absolutely delicious. Especially if you like the flavor of Pepper Jack Cheese.

This Pepper Jack Meatloaf delivers a kick! Meatloaf is probably the ultimate comfort food. Adults and kids love it alike. Probably because it tastes like a hamburger without the bun. Or maybe because it’s so easy to make and can serve the whole family.

I have several other gourmet meatloaf recipes on this site but this one quickly become one of my favorite meatloaves to make. My wife is not a big fan of red meat but she said this was her favorite so far!

What I especially like about this meatloaf is there aren’t too many spices to overwhelm the meat so you get to really taste the pepper jack cheese.
