Parmesan Meatloaf

MAde this for the family for the first time last year and it was a hit with the adults AND children! Plus it was my very first meatloaf, and I rather enjoyed it :)


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup marinara pasta sauce (homemade here, minus the meat)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
  • minced parsley for garnish

How to make it :

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan (I used a regular glass loaf dish as in the photo above) with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey and beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Try not over handle the mixture otherwise it will get tough. Place the mixture in the greased loaf pan and form into a loaf. Top the meatloaf with pasta sauce.
  3. Place filled loaf pan on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes – 1 hour. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and sprinkle the top with the remaining shredded cheese. Place the meatloaf back in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted.
  4. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving/slicing. Garnish with parsley if desired.

(new cooking time added, mine usually takes 1 hr for 2 lbs meat)

Raise your hand if meatloaf is one of your favorite comfort foods, too! This dish has been the all-American favorite for decades, and it seems to never go out of style. We’ve tried so many different recipes at our house; with special sauces, surprise ingredients, toppings, stuffed meatloaf… All of them tasty – but sometimes you just want a really, really good basic meatloaf.

I think that’s exactly what this recipe is. A delicious, old-fashioned meatloaf with no fancy ingredients that you don’t even know how to pronounce. And that’s what makes this my favorite, of all the meatloaf recipes I’ve made. I love the fact that I almost always have all of these ingredients at hand, so whenever I’m out of dinner ideas, I know I can’t go wrong with this one. Every time I make this, it’s a huge hit and there are no leftovers (unless, of course, I make a double batch right off the bat). This is just the perfect combination of everyday ingredients, and the end result is going to blow you away. If you can get your hands on potato bread then I highly recommend using it for this recipe. And just plain eating it, too – it’s heavenly! But don’t be discouraged if you can’t find it; you can use another type of bread instead, and the recipe will still be a great success. Sometimes I add a little bit of chili sauce as well – just to add some extra kick. I love serving this meatloaf with either mashed potatoes or beautifully crunchy potato wedges. What’s your favorite side dish for meatloaf?


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 clove farlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp onion, diced
  • 2 slices potato bread
  • 1/4 cup McArthur milk
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 large Eggland’s egg
  • 1/3 cup Heinz ketchup


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a big bowl, mix together ground beef, garlic, and onion.
  2. Tear the bread into small pieces and add to the beef mixture.
  3. Insert the milk, Worcestershire sauce, sage, salt, mustard, egg, and pepper into the beef mixture.
  4. Mix until the ingredients have been well incorporated.
  5. Set the beef mixture in an ungreased skillet.
  6. Shape into an 8 × 4-inch loaf in the pan, then spread with ketchup
  7. Now, bake uncovered for about 60 minutes until meat and juices are no longer pink or until a meat thermometer inserted in the heart of this loaf reads 160°F, and the center of loaf is no longer pink.
  8. Let the loaf sit for about 5 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and then cut into slices. Then Serve.

 Today I’ll show you how to make some of grandmas juicy old fashioned meatloaf. it’s delicious, juicy and rich of flavors.

But before starting here is some great tips for a nice cooked, juicy and beautiful meatloaf…

Make sure to get it nice and even, because that’s will help cook it evenly. You don’t want something like, this side is done, and the other side not yet. So, by you making it nice and even, it’ll get done at the same time all around the whole meat loaf. And what I like to do, is pour just a tiny bit of water in the bottom of the pan to get it going. But that little bit of water will definitely evaporate and what you’re going to get, is some oil that’s going to come off from your meatloaf into your pan.

Shape the mixture into a loaf form, smooth out any cracks that’s in it, and make sure it’s not too high, but high enough so that it looks like a meatloaf.

Feel free to use a low form pan and make it into a football or whatever you want to do, you can make this into little tiny Meatloaf’s if you want it too.

Smooth out any areas that look like it might be cracked; because, all your juices will go flowing out.

You want all that beautiful juice right down in your old fashioned Meatloaf, to stay in there. So, take your time to smooth the edges out and get the shape that you’re looking for.

Smooth all those cracks out, take your time. Any time you’re in the kitchen, I want you all to take your time, because, when you take your time and you have patience; trust me, you’re going to have some good results.

Because, patience is the key to good cooking. I really do I like to put love on everything that I am making. I don’t care if it’s a fried egg that I’m making or an old fashioned meatloaf, or something else. I love to put my heart my soul and everything that I have into that egg. Absolutely, if you’re not doing that in the kitchen, I’m not sure what type of food you’re serving people.  LOL
