Remember Mom's meatloaf? It was always a boring, dry affair. (Hi Mom! Thanks for the expensive college education I'm using to insult your food in public!)

Improve your childhood recipes with this delicious, mozzarella-y loaf, with a Parmesan mashed potato bringing you even more cheesy goodness. Moms everywhere, we love you… but this meatloaf is here to stay.

    1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Filling

    Quarter potatoes. Stem and mince oregano. Coarsely crush croutons. In a mixing bowl, combine half the cream cheese (reserve remaining for potatoes) and mozzarella (reserve a pinch for garnish). Set aside.

    2

    Make the Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes, garlic cloves, 4 cups water, and 1 tsp. salt to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes. Reserve ⅔ cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes and garlic cloves in a colander and return to pot. Add remaining cream cheese, Parmesan, half the potato cooking water, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Mash until smooth. If too dry, add potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside. While potatoes cook, make meatloaves.

  • Step 3 - Form the Meatloaves

    Form the Meatloaves

    In another mixing bowl, combine ground beef, oregano, mayonnaise, croutons, and a ¼ tsp. salt. Divide beef mixture in half and form into two patties. Place half the cream cheese-mozzarella mixture in center of each patty. Wrap beef mixture around cheese filling, forming into a loaf shape (make sure filling is fully enclosed). If using ground pork, follow same instructions.

  • Step 4 - Bake the Meatloaves

Bake again until loaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Rest baked meatloaves, 5 minutes. If using ground pork, follow same instructions and bake in hot oven until browned, 25 minutes. Top with marinara and mozzarella, then bake again until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes.
