Posts Tagged ‘Provolone cheese’

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.

How could you go wrong by combining Italian flavors with a grilled hamburger?  You can’t!  I found this recipe on Pinterest from Julie’s Eat and Treats and knew it had to be good.  We love burgers around here and the addition of shredded cheese and seasonings put these over the top.

Italian Burgers

1/2 cup shredded pizza blend cheese

1 tsp. Worcestshire sauce

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. black pepper

pinch of salt

1 tsp. dried onion flakes

1/8 tsp. oregano

1 lb. ground beef

1/2 cup traditional pasta sauce

4 buns

4 slices Provolone cheese

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.  Combine the shredded cheese, Worcestshire sauce, garlic powder, pepper, salt, onion flakes and oregano in a bowl.  Add the ground beef and thoroughly combine.  Form the meat mixture into four patties.

Turn the grill down to medium and cook the burgers for four to five minutes on each side.  Butter the buns on each side.  Turn the grill down to low and place the buns on the grill to lightly toast.  Place the cheese slices on the burger to melt. 

Place the burgers on the buns and pour two tablespoons of the pasta sauce on the burger and then add your favorite burger toppings.
