This Football Meatloaf with Sweet Tomato Glaze is absolutely amazing. It’s easy to make, loaded with flavor, and will look awesome at your next football party!
It’s a very simple meatloaf recipe that is formed into the shape of a football and then glazed with the delicious tomato glaze and topped off with long strings of Colby Jack cheese to act as the football laces.
From there just simply bake it! It’s actually easy to transport after that but in case you are too nervous, feel free to serve it right on the sheet pan.
Lastly, top off with some sliced green onions and some more shredded Colby Jack cheese.
