Best Ever Italian-Style Meatloaf

This is the only meatloaf recipe I use. The cheese makes the meatloaf very moist and tasty! The herbs impart a wonderful flavor as well! I freeze this after slicing in a container and reheat in the microwave for a quick dinner.

  4. Bake for 1 hour, uncover and pour extra sauce out.

I'm sorry to say that this wasn't what we expected. I think it may be better served over pasta with more sauce, or formed into meatballs, but as a meatloaf, it just didn't fit our family's tastes. The meat broke apart too easily, making it difficult to serve as well. I think the recipe has potential, but as is, is just so-so. Sorry!

This had a mild flavor no one spice over powered another. Yes, mine also fell apart when I tried to serve it. I guess you may want to increase the bread crumbs, maybe try 1 1/3 cups.
