  • Uncooked rolled oats or quick oats-3/4 cup
  • Milk-3/4 cup
  • Onion ( finely diced)-1
  • Garlic cloves ( minced)-4
  • Fresh parsley ( finely chopped)- 2 tablespoons
  • Ground beef ( lean or regular)- 2.2 lbs (1 kg)
  • Mozzarella cheese ( shredded)- 1 cup
  • Dijon mustard-  1 tablespoon
  • Tomato paste- 3 tablespoons
  • Large eggs – 2
  • Worcestershire sauce-2 tablespoons
  • Ground black pepper- 1 teaspoon
  • Paprika-1 teaspoon
  • Herb mix- 1 tsp.
  • Salt-to taste


  • Tomato sauce/passata-1/2 cup
  • Ketchup- 1/4 cup
  • Dark brown sugar- 2 teaspoons
  • White vinegar-4 tablespoons
  • Worcestershire sauce- 1 tablespoon
  • Mustard powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Onion powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Crack pepper- 1/2 teaspoon


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F / 200°C and position the rack in the middle of the oven. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Alternatively you can use a grill skillet for baking. Keep aside.
  • Mix together oats and milk in a large bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients for the meatloaf : ground beef, onion, garlic, parsley, Mozzarella  cheese, tomato paste, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, ground black pepper, paprika, herb mix and salt. Mix just until combined. Don't over-mix!
  • Transfer the meat mixture into the loaf pan  and press lightly to shape a loaf. Turn it out onto the prepared baking tray.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the meatloaf glaze: tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper.
  • Coat with half of the glaze, using a spoon. Bake for 60 minutes, then remove from the oven and pour the remaining meatloaf sauce over the meatloaf. Again spread it evenly with a spoon.
  • Return to the oven and bake further 15 minutes. Allow the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before slicing. This will prevent it from falling apart.
  • Serve with Mashed potatoes, Instant Pot Basmati rice, Jasmine  rice, or over cacio e pepe.
