Meatloaf with Vodka Sauce

Susan Feliciano


When I saw Carol Perricone's recipe for Homemade Vodka Sauce, this idea for an Italian meatloaf popped into my mind. I've used my basic meatloaf recipe, with Italian-inspired ingredients. Your dinner guests will want plenty of sauce, so whatever doesn't fit onto the meatloaf platter you can put in a gravy boat and pass with a large ladle!

How to Make Meatloaf with Vodka Sauce


  1. Prepare the Homemade Vodka Sauce. Keep warm.
    Make breadcrumbs by buzzing about 3 slices of Italian bread (or your choice) in a food processor or blender. Set aside.
  2. Have all ingredients at room temperature. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground meats, parmesan cheese, basil, tomato paste, cream, eggs, and salt & pepper. Gently fold in breadcrumbs. Mix until uniform.
  3. Turn mixture into a greased tube pan or Bundt pan. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour. Allow to cool in pan 10 minutes, then turn out on a serving platter with a high rim (to catch the vodka sauce). Pour the hot vodka sauce over the meatloaf, filling up the middle of the meatloaf.
