Oh Yum! Parmesan Meatloaf
I browse Pinterest a lot and came across a photo of a yummy meatloaf. It sounded so good, I thought I could try to create my own version of it, adding ingredients to my basic meatloaf recipe. All the topping sounded so good, and I just thought a cheesy saucy topped parmesan meatloaf sounded perfect for a cold winter night’s dinner. We didn’t even need the typical mashed potatoes, just a salad and some steamed veggies made the perfect dinner.
I typically do not put the red sauce on my meatloaf, we just don’t enjoy that, but a couple strips of bacon are totally delicious. However, this was different and I thought it would probably be super yummy!
1lb of ground turkey
1 lb of ground pork
1 cup of bread crumbs- italian style
3 tablespoons of italian seasoning
1/4 cup parmesan
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
1 tablespoon parsley
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup mozzerella cheese shredded
Combine all the ingredients except for the spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese and mix well, but do not mix to death, as it makes the meat tough. Put the mixture into a pan, or form a loaf on a baking pan. I prefer a baking pan so that there is more crispy crust. Pour about 1/2 the jar of sauce over the meatloaf.
Cook in a 400 degree oven about 30 minutes. Top with mozzarella cheese, and add a little more of the spaghetti sauce. Add parsley over top of the cheese.
Put back into oven and allow the cheese to melt and lightly brown, about 10 more minutes.
