Italian Meatloaf Recipe Mozzarella

Easy Italian Meatloaf Recipe Mozzarella – This is excellent meatloaf! Truly the best I've ever had! I did add chopped and sauteed onions, garlic and leeks. I left the foil off as suggested by other posts, and it was done in an hour. Instead of putting my Italian Meatloaf Recipe Mozzarella in a loaf pan, I form it on a cookie sheet. Makes it much easier to cut into slices and remove. My family didn't think the herbs were overpowering as others said. I even used Italian seasoned bread crumbs. This is no ordinary meatloaf, it's superb! Enjoy!


SERVING: 6-8
Preparation time                   Cook time
20 Minutes                             50 Minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup seasoned dry bread crumb
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1⁄2 cup of your favorite pasta sauce, homemade or in the jar
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3⁄4 lb lean ground beef
  • 1⁄2 lb hot Italian sausage
  • 1 cup cubed mozzarella cheese, in about 1/4 inch pieces
  • additional pasta sauce, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the egg, breadcrumbs (I whir herbed dry stuffing mix in my food processor to make these), garlic, and 1/2 cup pasta sauce until well-mixed.
  3. Add remaining ingredients (except the garnish), and mix together well (I do the whole thing in my sturdy KitchenAid mixer, which works quite well).
  4. Put into a large loaf pan, top/garnish with additional pasta sauce (I like a*lot* of sauce and so use about a half-cup, but three or four tablespoons would do, too), and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
  5. Serve with rice, spaghetti, or scalloped potatoes.
Tip
Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
