Total: 1 hr 20 mins


  • 1 lb ground beef, preferably lean
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, pureed until smooth if chunky, divided
  • ¾ cup breadcrumbs, store-bought or homemade
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated or powdered

To Serve:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease both a loaf tin of your choice and a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients together, using only half of the marinara sauce.
  3. Place into your greased loaf tin and pack tightly.
  4. Roast for roughly 30 minutes.
  5. Once roasted, drain and set aside to cool down briefly, then invert the loaf tin to release the meatloaf.
