Italian Meatloaf Recipe Mozzarella

Italian Meatloaf Recipe Mozzarella | Italian Meatloaf Recipe Mozzarella – Excellent meatloaf! I added a bunch of minced garlic and used marinara sauce instead of the tomato sauce. Thanks for a great recipe! 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. We love Italian, and this quickly helped me to enjoy meat loaf, what I never had. Enjoy!
