So I had thought that I had posted a similar recipe last year, but now I can’t find it. The last one I made in a crockpot and this one I made in the oven. And it is super delish!
Sometimes even in the heat of summer you just crave some supper yummy comfort food! And the nice thing about this meal is that the prep is really low maintenance. There are so many different ways to make a meatloaf that it can be really overwhelming to decide which one to try.
This recipe is really moist and flavorful! I hope yours turns out just as lovely!
Makes about 3 servings.
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- 1 Cup Bread Crumbs
- 1/2 Cup Onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 Cup Garlic and Parmesan Tomato Sauce, my favorite brand is Bertolli
- Fresh Basil and Parsley, finely chopped. I only had about a handful in the garden but I would’ve wanted to use about 1/4 cup
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder or 1 clove minced garlic
- 2 Eggs
- 4 slices of Mozzarella (the soft kind)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add all the ingredients (except the cheese) to a medium mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together. Lay out a 12 inch sheet of wax paper on the counter top. Spread out the meat mixture on the wax paper. It should be about 1/2 inch thick. Lay the slices of cheese in the middle of the meat.
Roll the meat by lifting the long end of the wax paper and starting to fold it over. Pinch the sides close.
Place the meatloaf in a small baking dish or a meatloaf pan. Bake for 60 minutes.
As soon as it’s done baking remove from the pan and let it rest for a few minutes. Then slice it up and enjoy!!
Look at all this cheesy goodness! Yum yum yummy!
