Mom's Stovetop Meatloaf

I know I've told you all before that growing up my mom put a can of delmonte on or in every dish she made.  This is another one of those yummy dishes.  I like different varieties of meatloaf but for most of my life this is the only kind I knew.  It's made on the stovetop and is very soft just like a meatball. 

My mom doesn't use the onions but I love the flavor it gives.  I tend to add a little garlic powder and onion powder in it know, just in case.

Mom's Stovetop Meatloaf

1 pound of ground beef
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup of grated pecorino romano cheese
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup cooked white rice, plus more for serving if you wish
extra virgin olive oil
1 -14 ounce can delmonte tomato sauce
garlic powder and onion powder, just sprinkle it on
salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in a small saute pan.  Saute onions and garlic until softened.  Reserve and allow to cool.
In a large bowl mix ground beef, egg, romano cheese, parsley, white rice, cooled onions and garlic, garlic powder and onion powder, salt and pepper.  Pack together and add to a large pan that was drizzled with oil.  Form into a loaf.  Add can of delmonte sauce over the meatloaf.  Cover and let cook over medium- medium low heat for 1 hour.  Slice and serve with sauce, with white rice and peas.

Looks good. Never trie meatloaf on the stove before.

I've never heard of a stovetop meatloaf ... or putting rice in meatloaf, but it looks and sounds very good! Had to chuckle at the "can of Del Monte." For me, it's their Petite Diced Tomatoes with Zesty Jalapeno - I seem to throw a can of those in everything. LOL

I made your stovetop meatloaf 2x, since my oven blew, I only cook ontop of the stove, and this delicious meatloaf recipe is fab! I'm Sicilian & all your recipes hit home with how I grew up with my mom & grandma. Oh yeah, the macaroni and peas also rocks! Thanks, Lisa B.
