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.
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
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.
