Paula Deen's Italian Meatloaf // A Recipe


I made our all-time favorite Italian Meatloaf recipe for dinner last night (courtesy of the great Paula Deen) with mashed potatoes, asparagus and rolls. It is the only kind of meatloaf I make - it's that good! And it makes two loaves. Hope you enjoy this yummy meal as much as our family does!

You can also get the recipe on Paula Deen's website here.

Ingredients:

- 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb. ground chuck
- 1 lb. ground mild sausage
- 1/2 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
- 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp. dried basil leaves
- 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

In a small skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and garlic; cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until tender. In a large bowl, combine ground chuck, sausage, bread crumbs, eggs, 1/2 cup cheese, and milk; mixing well. Add cooked vegetables, mixing well. Press mixture into two 9x5 loaf pans, or shape into loaves and place on a rack in a broiler pan. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce and remaining ingredients. Spoon evenly over loaves. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink.

Yield: 2 loaves
