Mozarella Stuffed Meatloaf

IMG_6120  IMG_6121 IMG_6122As a kid, I was never a big fan of meatloaf.  But that all changed when I discovered a recipe for mozzarella stuffed meatloaf.  I like to call it meatloaf surprise!


1 pound of ground meat, 1 1/2 – 2 cups of Italian bread crumbs, one chopped onion, one minced garlic clove, one egg, 1/2  – 3/4 cup pizza sauce (depending on the amount of bread crumbs you like)

Press the ground meat mixture out on a cutting board.  In the center of the rectangle, put 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle parmesan and parsley flakes on top of that.  Roll the edges of the rectangle toward the center and pinch the ends shut enclosing the cheese in the center.    Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.  After 50 minutes, you can drizzle a bit of pizza sauce and sprinkle a bit of cheese on top and run in the oven for the last 10 min – for a bit of pizzaz!  Enjoy!

    Sounds really yummy! I stuff mine with canned mushrooms, cheese and chopped ham. It made meatloaf an acceptable dish for Chad and Chip growing up. I think I’ll try yours next time I do it!
