Meatloaf with Pancetta


FullSizeRender (1)

This meatloaf was so easy to make and really delicious and moist. The only problem is what to do with the rest of the evaporated milk! Any suggestions? This would freeze really well, too!


1 lb. ground beef

1/2 chopped onion

10 oz. chopped mushrooms

3 oz. chopped pancetta

1 egg

1/2 c. breadcrumbs

1/4 c. evaporated milk

6 oz. grated mozzarella cheese, divided


Preheat the oven to 350.

In a small pan, cook the pancetta until starting to crisp. Remove from pan, leaving some of the pancetta grease behind.

Add the onions and the mushrooms. Cook until all are softened.

Combine everything (but only half of the cheese) in a bowl and mix well (I use my hands for this! They are the best mixers around!).

Season with salt and pepper.

Place in a meatloaf pan and cook for about an hour.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and place back in the oven until the cheese has melted.
