Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a loaf pan.

  • Combine panko, milk, and egg in a small bowl and allow to soften, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine ground beef, sausage, onion, 3 tablespoons marinara sauce, and garlic salt in a bowl. Add panko mixture and mix by hand until combined. Pat 1/2 of the mixture into the prepared pan. Lay 2 string cheese sticks side-by-side horizontally on top, leaving about 1/2 inch from the ends of the pan; stack remaining cheese sticks on top. Cover with remaining meat mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cover with remaining marinara sauce. Bake for 20 minutes more.

  • While meatloaf bakes, prepare Alfredo sauce. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, about 1 minute. Add heavy cream and stir until combined. Add Parmesan cheese and stir until blended. Season with nutmeg.

  • Remove meatloaf from the oven and allow to rest for about 10 minutes. Pour Alfredo sauce down the middle of meatloaf. Slice and serve.

Cook's Note:

This can also be made in individual loaf pans. If so, use 1 piece of string cheese per loaf pan.
