  2. 1 Loaf Rhodes™ Bread Dough or 12 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
  3. 2 eggs beaten
  4. 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  5. 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  6. 8 ounces Cheese Whiz
  7. 3/4 cup chopped onion
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  10. Place dough in the refrigerator while you make the meatloaf (remove to counter 20 minutes before meatloaf is done).
  11. Reserve 1 tablespoon beaten egg for glaze. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Press mixture into an 8 1/2x4 1/2-inch bread pan. Bake at 350°F 45 minutes. Remove from oven and drain. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
  12. After you take the meatloaf out of the oven, spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Roll loaf or combined rolls into a 10x15-inch rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 15-20 minutes while meatloaf cools. Remove wrap and place baked meatloaf in center of dough. Fold dough around and over meatloaf to completely enclose. Place seam side down on a sprayed baking sheet. Cut some small vents in the top with a sharp knife. Brush with reserved egg and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Serve warm with ketchup or BBQ sauce.*
