GETTTING READY
1. In a large bowl, combine meat-loaf mixture, 2 of the eggs, bread crumbs, parsley, onion, mushrooms and liquid, horseradish, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.Mix lightly until well-blended.
2. Prepare the jelly-roll pan with a lining of foil. Shape the meat-loaf preparation into a an oval loaf(10x4) and place in the pan.
3. In a moderate oven (375°) bake for 50 minutes. Spoon all drippings from pan; cool loaf. Raise oven temperature to hot (425°).
4. To prepare the pie crust mix, follow the label directions, or make pastry from previous familiar recipe.On a lightly floured board, roll out to a rectangle, about 16x13, and trim the edges to make a rectangle, 14x12. Cut off a triangular piece, about 1 inch deep, across each corner. (This eliminates thick ends when pastry is wrapped around loaf.)
MAKING
5. In the centre of the pastry rectangle,place cheese slices, side by side. Now place meat loaf, over the cheese.
6. In a cup add 1 teaspoon water and beat remaining one egg.
7. Brush part over one long side of pastry, then wrap the two long sides up and over loaf to cover and press edges together to seal.Brush ends of pastry with egg mixture and fold over loaf. Press to seal.
8. Place loaf, seam side down, on a greased cooky sheet. Brush all over with egg mixture. Reroll pastry trimmings 1/2 inch thick; cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips with a pastry wheel or knife. Press over loaf in a crisscross pattern and brush with egg mixture.
9. In a hot oven bake at (425°)for 25 minutes, or until pastry is golden. Allow to cool a little and the lift loaf onto a heated serving platter.
