Stuffed meatloaf with sauce

Stuffed meatloaf with sauce, Alla siciliana. But not just any meat loaf, this is the meatloaf mom, stuffed with spinach, Bacon, boiled eggs and smothered in tomato sauce. I accompanied with simple agretti, have read and serviced with a little butter, a vegetable that I didn't know before I moved to Rome and I find delicious and beautiful, but you can choose the side dish of your choice. The secret of meatloaf stuffed with gravy is all in the ground seasoning: the meat should be soft and flavor of Parmesan and pecorino. The only delicate phase of the preparation is that of browning, when the meatloaf is subjected to many stresses and could break, so be careful. And mon forget to use the sauce to dress pasta. Have a good day!

  • 500 grams of lean ground beef
  • the inner part of a sandwich or 4 slices of sandwich bread without borders
  • 40 grams of shredded PDO Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 20 grams of grated pecorino cheese Dop
  • 2 eggs
  • chopped parsley as required
  • salt and pepper
  • a little chopped fresh onion
  • extra virgin olive oil just enough to Brown the meat loaf

  • 750 ml of tomato puree
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • medium onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • a glass of white wine
  • 6 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


to prepare the meatloaf stuffed with sauce Sicilian, put in a large bowl the ground, the inner part of the bun or loaf of bread soaked in milk and well squeezed, the spring onion, chopped, the Parmesan, pecorino, chopped parsley and eggs. Season with salt and pepper and mix until you get a homogeneous mixture.

Cook the spinach in the pan with butter, season with salt and pepper. If you have used the frozen spinach after cooking let cool and squeeze excess water from well.

Spread onto a cutting board covered with parchment paper less than half of the ground, to form a rectangle about a half centimeter of often, arrange the spinach at the Center, the bacon and three boiled eggs (lined up one after the other for the length of the dough). Cover with the rest of the ground closing fine ends and, using the parchment paper, create a compact Wiener. Store the loaf for one hour in refrigerator.

After this time, Brown the meat loaf in a very large skillet in hot oil, turning each side, gently, being careful that it does not open. Add the spring onion chopped leftover and,  When it has withered, the tomato paste and deglaze with white wine. Add the tomato puree, half a cup of hot water, season with salt and pepper and cook the meatloaf a low heat covered halfway to 40 minutes, until the sauce will not be dense. I remind you that with this sauce you can dress fabulous fettuccine. Allow to cool the meatloaf stuffed with sauce Sicilian, so that rassodi a little, and serve cut into thick slices with sauce and your favorite side dish.

No… But I had built it in to wrap paper oven and then film. It was a perfect cylinder. After an hour of fridge I browned and at the first turn yielded a junction line. Well, to the next hold. Hi dear

EH, Meatloaf takes patience, my advice is always not to make it too big and obviously the critical phase is just the browning. A warm greeting, ADA

Isabel Hello! Let's say it's not a fancy recipe, refined and dished up well, but the taste is very good. On the other hand some rustic dishes of our tradition must be safeguarded! I also season the pasta sauce, inevitable! A hug, ADA
