Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great NYE and is having a nice relaxing day at home with family and friends. So a couple of days ago, I made this really yummy meatloaf. I had about a pound of ground beef and knew I wanted to make meatloaf, but I wanted to try something new. So I looked around the fridge and pantry for a while, and discovered a small can of tomato sauce and some shredded mozzarella. Here is how I made it… GO DAWGS!!!!
Cheesy Italian Meatloaf
1 pound of ground beef
About 3/4 sleeve of crackers (soda or butter)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
1 container of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon each of thyme, marjoram, and oregano
salt and pepper to taste- do not skimp
In a large bowl combine the beef, egg, crackers, and all your spices. I also put a little bit of the tomato sauce and cheese in the beef mixture as well. I get in there and mix it up with my hands. Mix just enough to combine the ingredients. I take my mixture, form in a loaf shape in a long dish (spray with non-stick spray) Top with more tomato sauce then cover in cheese. 375 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Served it with some mashed potatoes, peas, and crescent rolls. Delish!
