"This meatloaf is easy to make even for a beginner. It tastes like a giant meatball and is really delicious. My whole family, including my picky eater kids, loved it the first time I made it and it has been requested many times since. I usually make mashed potatoes, a veggie and hot rolls to go with it."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan (I use glass bread loaf pan) with cooking spray, set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the ground pork and beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Try not over handle the mixture, otherwise it will get tough.

Step 3

Place the mixture in the greased loaf pan, and form into a loaf. Top the meatloaf with pasta sauce.

Step 4

Place filled loaf pan on a baking sheet, and bake for 1 hour.

Step 5

Remove the meatloaf from the oven and drain any grease from the meats at this time.

Step 6

Sprinkle the top with the remaining shredded cheese.

Step 7

Place the meatloaf back in the oven, and bake until the cheese is melted.

Step 8

Remove the meatloaf from the oven, and let sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Outstanding! I used finely shredded Parmesan cheese as I do in my meatbslls, and whole grain bread crumbs that I made myself. I didn't overwork the meat as I was mixing it up. Used garlic powder instead of fresh, and dried herbs. Made my own sauce. Results were perfect! I had Caesar Mashed Potatoes and Zesty Italian Salad with it. Grand combo!

Mel, you were right, this is a really delicious meatloaf and even Mason ate it! I made thick sliced fried potatoes with onions and garlic to have with it and threw on some sugar snap peas for a veggie. Deliciousness!
