2013_01_30I saw a bunch of Italian meatloaf recipes, but none of them were quite what I had in mind. So I took my meatball recipe and added bread crumbs and eggs to it. Topped it with sauce and melted mozzarella cheese. This tasted just like Italian meatballs but in meatloaf form. We all loved it!


Italian Meatball Meatloaf


2 lbs ground beef
1 onion finely chopped
3 carrots finely chopped
2 eggs beaten
1/2 Cup Japanese panko bread crumbs
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp Italian seasons
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix ground beef, egg, onions, carrots and garlic together. In a small bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to meat mixture and mix thoroughly.

Put meat in loaf pan and cover with spaghetti sauce. I used tomato basil. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until done. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake an additional minute of two for cheese to melt. (Mine took about an hour and a half, but I think it depends on your loaf pan)
