    • 1 cup diced ham
    • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
    • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
    • 1 egg
    • ½ cup milk
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt

    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1: Prepare the Meatloaf Mixture

1.Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

4.Pour the egg mixture into the chicken mixture and mix until well combined.

Step 2: Form the Meatloaf

5.Transfer half of the meatloaf mixture into a greased loaf pan, spreading it evenly.

6.Create a layer of ham slices on top of the meat mixture, followed by a layer of Swiss cheese slices.
