Italian Meatloaf with Mozzarella

I wanted to change this up a bit by adding Mozzarella and Gouda to my Italian Meatloaf recipe.  Mozzarella takes longer to melt but the taste goes together marvelously! 

3 Eggs
1 Cup Breadcrumbs (Tightly Packed)
Seasoning (Alpine Touch, Garlic Powder, Mediterranean Oregano, Mediterranean Basil, a couple of dashes of red pepper flakes)
1 1/2 lb Ground Beef
1/2 lb Ground Italian Sausage
1 Cup Mozzarella (grated)
1/2 Cup Gouda (grated) (or another smoked cheese)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine the eggs, bread crumbs and seasoning.  Mix thoroughly.  Crumple the meat over the mixture and mix all together.   Press half of the meat mixture into a loaf pan.  Sprinkle 3/4 of the cheese over the top of the meat.  Pat the remaining meat mixture on top of the cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes.  Turn off the oven.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and let sit in the warm oven for about 10 minutes to melt the cheese.  Remove the meat loaf from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes.  Serve & Enjoy!
