Meatloaf…it’s what’s for dinner!
Regular old meatloaf takes on a whole new flavor experience with the addition of oregano and feta cheese.
- 2 lbs. lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup red onion chopped fine
- 1 tbsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs plain
- 4 oz. crumbled feta cheese basil + tomato
- 2 large eggs beaten
- 1 large roma tomato thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl mix / knead all the ingredients, except for the sliced tomato, together until well blended.
Prepare a small roasting pan with no-stick spray. Form the ground beef mixture into a loaf and place in the roasting pan.
Cover and bake for 60 minutes. Remove the cover and lay the tomato slices evenly over the top of the meatloaf. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let the meatloaf rest for 3 or 4 minutes before slicing.
A nice fresh greek salad is always a welcome side for our greek meatloaf.
