Italian Meatloaf

Bill loves this meatloaf.  However, when trying to get it out of the pan, the bottom did stick a little (so you may have to spray the pan down first).  It also drained off the grease while it was cooking (about half way through and again when I pulled it out of the oven).


Italian Meatloaf
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup dry bread crumbs (I'm going to try a full cup next time I make this)
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained (I used the ones with basil and oregano flavoring)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs and ketchup. Add in the Italian-style seasoning, oregano, basil, garlic salt, diced tomatoes and cheese. Press into a 9x5 inch loaf pan, and cover loosely with foil.
  3. Bake 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.


  1. Yum! I wonder what I could use as a substitute for the bread crumbs so I could make this now!

  2. sounds delish!

  4. I am so glad I don't have to make meatloaf anymore. My husband loved it.

  5. I made this one time last yr I thought it was an original. Lol I don't think ours was exactly alike but very similar :) and I bet that both tasted delicious

  6. Yummy!

  7. Lisa, this sounds so fantastic!

  11. Sounds easy and like perfect comfort food!

  12. Looks fantastic!

  13. try putting a strip of foil the length of the pan with enough to fold over the handles at end—then spray pan and you will be able to lift loaf out and it will slide off of foil onto platter.
