Posts Tagged ‘Italian Meatloaf’

I hope y’all liked the Italian Burger post from a couple of weeks ago because it was the inspiration for this meatloaf recipe.  I am a sucker for Italian flavors, but had never thought about adding them to meatloaf.  This recipe was a huge success and one I will definitely be making again.

The biggest downfall about this main course is that it is so hard to photograph well.  Meat,you are my photography nemesis!!

Italian Meatloaf 1

1 lb. ground beef

2/3 cup plain bread crumbs

1/2 cup shredded pizza blend cheese

1/2 cup favorite pasta sauce

1 tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. minced onion

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup additional favorite pasta sauce

2 slices Provolone cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with a rack on it.  Cover both with foil and spray with non-stick spray.  Then poke holes in the foil on the rack for the extra grease to dip through. 

Combine all of the ingredients except the second 1/2 cup of pasta sauce and the provolone.  Shape into a loaf and place on the prepared rack.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reads about 155 degrees.  Lay the provolone slices on the baked meatloaf and spread the remaining 1/2 cup sauce over the cheese.  Place back in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Let the meatloaf set for about 15 minutes for the best flavor.
