Italian Meatloaf


  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1.5 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce with basil, garlic and oregano, divided
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a medium baking dish with non-stick spray and set aside.

Heat the butter in a small skillet. Add the chopped onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Mix beef, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, breadcrumbs, cheese and egg in a large bowl. Add onions and stir well.

Pour beef mixture into the prepared baking dish and shape into an oblong shape. Pat down until smooth.

Spread remaining 1/4 cup tomato sauce and ketchup over top.

Place the meatloaf in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes-1 hour or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees F. Baste the meatloaf with the juices on the bottom of the pan every 15 minutes.
