Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Assemble the Meatloaf:
In a loaf pan, spread half of the chicken mixture evenly on the bottom.
Layer the chicken ham slices on top of the chicken mixture, followed by the Swiss cheese slices.
Cover with the remaining chicken mixture, ensuring the ham and cheese are fully enclosed.
Bake the Meatloaf:
Place the meatloaf in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, sprinkle the panko breadcrumbs on top.
Continue baking for an

additional 15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the meatloaf is cooked through.
Prepare the Creamy Dijon Gravy:
While the meatloaf is baking, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is bubbling and slightly golden.
Gradually add the heavy cream and milk, whisking constantly to avoid lumps.
Stir in the Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard, bringing the mixture to a simmer.
Add the grated Parmesan cheese and freshly grated nutmeg, stirring until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve: Once the meatloaf is done, let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve the meatloaf slices topped with the creamy Dijon gravy.
