Mozzarella Meatloaf

Recipe by Sassy Cat
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • You can use a combination of ground meats.
  • I like a combination of beef, pork and veal.
  • Combine ground meats, bread crumbs, egg, onions, salt and oregano with 1/2 cup ketchup in a bowl.
  • Mixing well.
  • Pat meat mixture flat onto a 9" X 13" piece of waxed paper.
  • Sprinkle the meat with cheese, mushrooms, bacon, and parsley.
  • Roll, as for a jelly roll, using the waxed paper to help you start to roll.
  • Sealing edge and ends.
  • Rolling the meat is a little tricky, but if there is a break in the meat just smooth over with your fingers.
  • it will still taste great.
  • With a little practice you will be a pro.
  • Use the waxed paper to transfer the meat loaf to a 9" X 13" pan.
  • Place seam side down.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Pour off drippings.
  • Spoon remaining ketchup over loaf.
  • At this time I like to garnish the meat loaf with sliced black olives, or onion slices and a sprinkling of parsley.
  • Or you can place bell pepper slices on the meat.
  • Bake for 30 minutes longer.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before slicing.
  • *Ifyou want a really Italian tasting meat loaf use spaghetti sauce.
