  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine first 11 ingredients. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Divide mixture between two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans.
  • 2. Bake until a thermometer reads 160°, 50-60 minutes. If desired, top with additional sauce and cheese.

    My family enjoyed this meatloaf, although we left out the olives. I will plan on making it again! We topped our with melted mozzarella cheese and used pizza sauce on the side.
