Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Mix beef, onion, 1/2 of the tomato sauce, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Pat into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle on a sheet of waxed paper. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.

  • Lift up the short side of the waxed paper to start rolling up the meatloaf. Roll tightly, peeling back paper as you go. Seal edges in place. Transfer meatloaf to a loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Combine remaining tomato sauce and 1/2 teaspoon oregano; pour over meatloaf and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes more. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

I sometimes like to add extra garlic - depends on who is coming over for dinner!

We had this last night and everyone enjoyed it. The cheese was a nice addition. I used 1lb hamburger and 1/2lb sage sausage, juet because it's what I had. Even with the sausage addition, I found ut needed a little more seasoning. Still delicious, hubby said I could make it again. :) Read More
