Mozzarella Meatloaf

This is a small meatloaf recipe.  It can be doubled or tripled for larger families. I typically make a couple of smaller loaves and share with family  or freeze the leftovers. 

  
Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds ground chuck, I use 80/20, if you prefer, use ground chicken or turkey  

3/4 teaspoon garlic salt, or more to taste 

1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or more to taste

1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese

1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs

1 egg, beaten

2 teaspoons Worchestshire sauce

1/4 cup tomato sauce, I used the one with basil, garlic and oregano

1 mozzarella cheese stick, I used string cheese

Pizza sauce, marinara sauce or ketchup for the top of meatloaf, about 1/4 cup

    
  Place cheese stick in the center and cover completely with the meatloaf mixture.   

 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients except for cheese stick. Once ingredients are combined, flatten meat out and put cheese stick in the center. Form into a loaf or loaves if you make 2 mini loafs as I did and place in baking pan. Brush on topping of your choice, pizza sauce, marinara sauce or ketchup. Bake for 35-40* minutes until done. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.  Mangia!  Mangia!

*If you make one meatloaf, I would add a couple of cheese sticks and bake longer.
