She said it was her husband's favorite, and I can see why - it DOES taste like a giant meatball!! Mine sort of didn't keep its "loaf" shape, but that's okay. Delicious nonetheless!
I wanted to throw some shredded mozzarella inside and/or on top, but realized I had none. So... I chopped up a couple of things of string cheese. ;)
I served the meatloaf with this.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup prepared spaghetti sauce, divided
- 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Heat oven to 375°F. Using your hands, mix together beef, half the spaghetti sauce, bread crumbs, half the Parmesan cheese, onion, egg and Italian seasoning in a medium mixing bowl. Shape into loaf and place in an 12x8x2-inch baking dish. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce and cheese. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or to desired doneness. During baking time, if desired, use a baster to remove excess grease from pan.
