When the ground is well seasoned, spread on a sheet of parchment paper around the ground, up to form a rectangle of about one centimeter and a half of a thickness. Covering the surface of the rectangle with the bacon coppata, leaving two centimeters along each edge.

Meatloaf stuffed baked

I suggest you serve the meat loaf stuffed Sicilian, simply baked potatoes, dressed with extra virgin olive oil, Salt, pepper and Rosemary: You must cook the potatoes in a separate pan and, only in the last 10 minutes, when they are already cooked, add them to the pan of meat loaf, so they will infuse the sauce and the taste of the meat. Serve the meatloaf stuffed Sicilian after having done it stand for 10 minutes, so that it remains compact but the cheese melted. And Bon Appetit!

THE PAIRING: “Barbazzale”, Etna Doc White, vintage 2017, produced by Cottanera cellar, in the village of Castiglione di Sicilia. A volcano wine, that smells of citrus and white flowers. Great while matching eggs and potatoes, this Sicilian wine accompanies this recipe with extreme delicacy, allowing full exploitation of the flesh.


The stuffed meatloaf Sicilian is also delicious cold or heated in the oven or in a pan with a little butter. We do a straight by real gourmands: in family, when advancing the cut in slices and put it between two slices of bread with a little 'mayonnaise. A delight!

Hello, I would like to serve for Easter dinner, I prepare it the night before and bake the next day, or me does not recommend? Thanks in advance

Hello Clare, It is a great choice for Easter dinner. But I do not recommend to do it the day before because the ground tends to blacken. At most, you can boil the eggs and cold cuts and cheese. It is not too long to do, you should get by in 15 minutes Happy Easter. Let me know
