Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Thoroughly mix beef, pasta sauce, bread crumbs, onion, ketchup, egg, garlic, oregano, salt, and ground black pepper together using your hands in a large bowl.
  3. Spread 1/2 the meat mixture into the bottom of a loaf pan. Spread mozzarella cheese over the center of the meat. Spread remaining meat mixture over the cheese, pressing edges of meat together on the sides to seal in the cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until meat is no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Delizioso! My family enjoyed this one. I didn't have as much mozzarella as I thought so I had to sub in a little cheddar. Yum. I only used the 1/2 cup bread crumbs as in the recipe and I think it was the perfect amount. It turned out very moist however it was swimming in grease when it came out so I removed it from the loaf pan quickly. I liked using tomato sauce, thought it added a nice zip to the meatloaf. Thanks Lori!

We found the meatloaf to be very flavorful. I absorbed the grease with paper towels.

Tastes great but very oily and messy. I think I'll stick with regular meatloaf instead of stuffed with cheese.
