Best Italian Meatloaf Recipe

Italian flavours add a wonderful twist to conventional meatloaf. Imagine a soft, juicy loaf with herbs, Parmesan, marinara, and melty mozzarella—easy, tasty, and sure to satisfy.  

– 1 pound ground beef – ½ pound ground pork – 1 cup Italian breadcrumb – ¾ cup Parmesan cheese  – 1 small onion – 2 cloves garlic – 2 large egg – ½ cup milk – 1 cup marinara sauce – 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning – salt and pepper  – ½ cup mozzarella cheese



Heat the oven to 375°F. Line a loaf or baking pan with parchment paper or lightly oil it for easy removal.  


Mix ground beef, pork, Italian breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, diced onion, minced garlic, eggs, and milk in a large bowl.  


Add ½ cup marinara sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add everything and mix thoroughly without overmixing.  


Shape the ingredients into a loaf in the bread pan. Lightly press to condense the mixture.  


Place the remaining ½ cup of marinara sauce on top of the meatloaf. Bake the meatloaf for 50-60 minutes.   


The internal temperature of the meatloaf should reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and it should be cooked all the way through.  


Place the meatloaf back in the oven and top it with the shredded mozzarella cheese during the last few minutes of baking.   


Bake the cheese until it's bubbling and melted. Before slicing, take the meatloaf out of the oven and give it ten minutes to rest.  


This facilitates the meatloaf's setting and eases slicing. Add freshly cut parsley as a garnish.   


Slices of meatloaf can be served with mashed potatoes and more marinara sauce on the side, if preferred.
