Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, milk, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and garlic. Add ground beef and Italian sausage; mix lightly. Shape meat mixture into a round loaf, 9 inches in diameter. Transfer loaf to the unheated rack of a broiler pan or roasting pan with rack.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the middle of the loaf registers 160 degree F and juices run clear. Remove from oven. Top with sliced tomatoes; sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Transfer to a serving platter; sprinkle with basil chiffonade. Cut into wedges to serve. Makes 6 servings.


To make basil chiffonade, stack fresh basil leaves. Starting at a long edge, roll the leaves up. With a sharp knife, slice the roll into thin strips.
