Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf is officially our new favorite meatloaf in our house. We’ve been on an everything Philly Cheesesteak kick through the summer and this meatloaf is just replacing our previous favorites.
What’s the great city of Philadelphia famous for? The Rocky movies, the Liberty Bell, and of course the mouth-watering Philly Cheesesteak. A traditional cheesesteak is a sandwich made from thinly sliced beef steak, onions, and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. It was actually developed by Italian immigrants in the area, serving chopped steak on an Italian-style roll about a century ago, and it quickly caught on. This heartwarming, mouth-watering fast food became an instant American classic, and despite the name you can get Philly cheesesteaks just about anywhere these days.

How To Make Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf
Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat, add the onion, bell pepper and mushrooms and cook until tender, about 7-10 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute, before removing from heat.
Mix the beef, salt, pepper, cheese whiz, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, eggs, breadcrumbs and the cooked mixture of the onions, peppers, mushrooms and garlic.
Place half of the mixture down, place the solid piece of provolone in the middle, top with the remaining mixture, seal the edges well, shape the loaf as desired and place on a baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until cooked through, about 50-60 minutes.
Spread the sliced provolone over the top of the loaf, return to the oven and broil until the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes.
