I must be feeling nostalgic for home cooking, because I keep making recipes passed on from my dear Mom. I know that meatloaf isn’t particularly fancy, but some days nothing but comfort food will do. And I would just like to point out that THIS is one of the few things my husband says I make better than his mom. His mom who jars the sauce she makes from scratch. His mom who freezes the ravioli shes makes from homemade pasta.  To me, there is no greater compliment.


Serves 4 – 6 people


2 pounds ground beef (as was the case in my meatball entry, you can replace this with turkey meat)

1 egg

1/4 cup of breadcrumbs

1/4 cup parsley

1/2 10.75 ounce can of condensed tomato soup

1 packet dry onion soup mix

Shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Add ground meat, egg, breadcrumbs, parsley, tomato soup and onion soup mix to a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, combine until mixed well. Form mixture into a loaf form and place on a broiling pan or aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Scoop off the top portion of the loaf, leaving a bowl-like indent. Fill with shredded mozzarella.

Top cheese with remaining mixture.

Bake for 60 minutes. Cut into slices. I serve with my homemade potato slices. Enjoy!

    Nomnomnom. I love me some meatloaf. My wife makes these cupcake-sized meatloafs (meatloaves?), and I totally do a Blutarski food fight scene on them every time. Minus the zit pop.

    I feel a joke coming on….

    Your momma’s meatloaf is so good…

    Nah. Better not.

    I love this idea of putting the cheese inside! I will definitely be trying that on my next meatloaf!

    @Dan – Don’t you dare make jokes about my momma…

    @Tammy – Mom actually sometimes uses those Polly-O string cheese sticks instead of shredded cheese. You may have those for the kids’ lunches, and they work just as well.

    @Meagan – I’m honored with the award. Thank you much. ;)
