Meatloaf Milano

Dream Dinners Meatloaf Milano

Lightly seasoned lean ground beef is filled with a creamy layer of Gorgonzola cheese and topped with a rich marinara sauce. Pair with mashed potatoes and veggies.

Cook Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup nonfat liquid eggs
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 1/4 cup marinara sauce, divided
  • 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray two 9x5 loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray. (*Note: can be prepared in a muffin pan and cooked for only 20-25 min.)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine Worcestershire sauce, liquid eggs, panko, onion flakes,s salt, pepper, parsley, garlic, and 1/4 cup marinara. Add ground beef and mix until well combined.
  3. Press 1/2 of the beef mixture into the bottom of each pan. Sprinkle Gorgonzola (mozzarella makes a good substitution if your family doesn't like Gorgonzola) evenly over beef to within 1" of edge; press firmly on cheese.
  4. Press 1/2 of the remaining beef mixture on top of each loaf, then top with remaining marinara.
  5. Bake in the oven for 55 minutes. Remove meatloaf when brown and crisp around the edges (internal temp 160°F).
  6. Let rest 5 minutes before cutting into 1 1/2-inch slices.
