Meatloaf again! We love it, everyone loves it, and I have to say it is a lot of fun to experiment with, mixing up traditional American recipes with Italian ones, maybe even looking to Sweden and their delicious meatballs for a few ingredient choices and in the end just using what you have on hand to throw into this mystery meat.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ½ of a large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp grated parmigiano reggiano
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ cup Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, for the best results, mix together with your hands until perfectly blended, use a large wooden spoon if you don’t want to get your hands dirty.

Drizzle the olive oil in a baking pan and make your meatloaf by creating a little mound in the center of the pan. Bake in the center of the oven for 1 hour. Pour off the excess fat before serving.
