Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place meat, bread crumbs, eggs, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning mix, onion soup mix and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Start mixing on a medium speed and move up to highest speed until all ingredients are blended. Place 1/3 of the mixture in an oblong baking dish. Top with American cheese slices. Put 1/3 more meat over cheese and top with Monterey Jack cheese. Place remaining meat on top and form meat into an oval, making sure all the cheese is sealed into the meat.
