Mozzarella Meat Loaf Wellington Recipe

Mozzarella Meat Loaf Wellington Recipe

I took what I liked from a few different recipes and came up with this cheese-stuffed loaf. I make it for neighbors or friends who are sick or need help. It’s a pleaser!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, 1/3 cup spaghetti sauce, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
  • 2. On a piece of heavy-duty foil, pat beef mixture into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese and parsley to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side and peeling foil away while rolling. Seal seam and ends. Place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour; drain. Unroll crescent dough; seal seams and perforations. Drape dough over meat loaf to cover the top, sides and ends; seal ends. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160° and crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake 1 minute longer. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 4. Using two large spatulas, carefully transfer meat loaf to a serving platter. Serve with remaining spaghetti sauce. Yield: 8 servings.

"If you use 2 beaten eggs this will hold together better. This recipe needs just a little punching up but not much. Spinach (7 oz can drained) and not parsley was a good suggestion and some garlic pwr made a difference. I used Vodka Sauce instead of Marinara Sauce."

"I love this recipe. But I put spinach instead of parsley and sometimes sliced mushrooms in the middle. I also prefer pizza dough."

"This was okay. I had trouble getting the roll to stay together. Seemed like a lot of work for just an average result. Will stick with my standard meatloaf recipe in the future."

"My husband loves this meatloaf! Have made some midifications to it over time. We had crubled bacon, onion, bell pepper and garlic to the meat mixture just to flavor it up, but the idea is incredible and the crescent roll crust just makes it awesome!"
