This chicken & pork meatloaf recipe combines the delicious flavors of blue cheese, buffalo chicken and lean pork into the perfect dinner dish.
When it comes to meatloaf, I’m totally a convert! I was never really a fan of it growing up, but now that I’ve put my own twists on the dish, I absolutely love it!
For this meatloaf recipe I decided to combine both chicken and pork with the delicious flavors of buffalo sauce and blue cheese, a classic combo that I love in everything from Buffalo Chicken Phyllo Rolls to Bacon Wrapped Buffalo Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken!
The result was a moist and flavorful meatloaf that paired perfectly with my Buffalo Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes… because what’s a special meatloaf without a special side of mashed potatoes to go with it? 😉
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ cup onion (diced)
- ½ cup celery (chopped)
- ½ cup carrots (chopped)
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ cup breadcrumbs
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese (grated)
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup buffalo sauce (divided)
- ¾ cup blue cheese crumbles (divided)
Pre-heat the oven to 375°.
Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and carrots, saute 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute an additional minute.
Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl combine the chicken, pork and sauteed veggies. Add the chili powder, paprika, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, egg and ½ cup buffalo sauce.
Lightly mix in ¼ cup of the blue cheese crumbles.
Place the mixture in a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, drain any liquid, brush with the additional buffalo sauce.
Top with the remaining ½ cup blue cheese crumbles.
Place back into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Wait 15-20 minutes for the meatloaf to cool before removing from the loaf pan and slicing.
I created the Buffalo Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes to go specifically with this dish, but you could also serve it with Twice Baked Rosemary Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes (to keep with the blue cheese double down!) or Cast Iron Skillet Rustic Potatoes.
No matter what you serve it with, this chicken & pork meatloaf is guaranteed to be your new favorite meatloaf recipe!
