    Ducky's Note:

    I saw this made on Foodtv. I'm not big on meatloaf but DH is so I thought I'd give it a try. It is quite tasty and DH really enjoyed it. I think this could be easily altered for different flavors or cuisines. It is supposed to be a healthier version of the one your mother made. I made this without the prosciutto.

      I've made this now 2 different times and love it! It is so addictive. I added liquid smoke to the sauce and some garlic and onion powder and so it has a stronger barbecue flavor. I just love George Stella!

      I really liked this recipe. Only thing I think needs some changing is the tomato sauce. I think it was too tomatoy... if that makes any sense. This will make a great OAMC item. It freezes well. I made it up to step 10. Wrapped in the Wax paper after i rolled it up. Put in Zipplock bag and froze. The sauce I put in another bag and attached it to it. Thawed in fridge over night and cooked as directed. TY for posting this. I will make again.

      Very good meatloaf! I used extra-lean ground beef and made a couple of changes, but none I feel are significant to the integrity of the recipe. I formed a larger rectangle (more like 12X9-inches) as I thought it would be easier to roll with the filling, and I used extra prosciutto (I sliced it myself, and really didn't get it sliced as thin as it should have been). I also used regular sugar in the tomato sauce topping which, by the way, is a LOT of topping. Maybe it's because I don't usually put a topping on mine, but I put as much on the meatloaf as I could, and still had quite a bit left. I didn't bake in a loaf pan, just transferred after rolled to a baking dish and covered the entire exposed surface with the topping. In any case, this is a great recipe and I am looking very forward to making sandwiches from the leftovers tomorrow. :) Thanks for posting it!
