Parmesan Meatloaf

ParmesanMeatloaf

This is a tasty meatloaf with no need for fillers, it has some cheese, some tomato, and a ridiculous amount of flavour.

I am not a huge fan of meatloaf, but have found that when I get a chance to mix things up, I can make it pretty darn tasty. So here we go, meeeaaatttllloooooafffff. Ridiculously flavourful, awesome for dinners and awesome to pack up for lunches galore. Again, this makes a lot so feel free to cut it in half, but I don’t recommend it, meatloaf shrinks down and when things are this tasty, it is a good idea to have enough for more! The parmesan in the name is a replacement for the typical fillers, it adds lots of sharp flavour and bite. Delicious!

Anyway, enjoy it with a heaping serving of Sunday’s Fully-Loaded Cauliflower Bake. Awesome dinner all around!
