Make It At Home – Dollywood’s Meatloaf Stacker

Do you ever get the hankerin’ for food from Dollywood? I know I do. Especially during the off-season.

One of my favorite dishes to order is the Meatloaf Stacker at Granny Ogle’s Ham ‘n’ Beans. Fortunately, I was given the recipe to make at home and share with you!

Watch us make our own Meatloaf Stacker at home and then use the recipe below to make yours!

Meatloaf Stacker Recipe
1 lb. ground beef 80/20

1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped

1/4 cup red pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 egg, large

2/3 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 ¼ teaspoons black pepper, coarse ground

1 clove garlic, minced

4 slices Texas Toast

2 slices Texas Toast breadcrumbs

3/4 cup ketchup

3 tablespoons yellow mustard

1 ½ tablespoons light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350° F

In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, mustard and light brown sugar until combined and sugar begins to dissolve. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix diced onion, peppers, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, salt, pepper, Texas toast (two slices) and garlic until combined. Once combined, add ground beef and mix just until ingredients are combined, making sure not to over-mix. When all ingredients are combined, add to a loaf pan and cover with sauce. Bake at 350° F for 55 minutes or until internal temperature is 165° F.

When building the plate, place one slice of Texas Toast on one side of the plate and layer with one slice of meatloaf, about one inch thick, a scoop of mashed potatoes, and then drizzle with brown gravy.

Makes 4 servings

A couple notes from the kitchen:
It’s easier to chop peppers skin-side down

And, to make the meatloaf, it’s easier just mixing with your hands!
