Italian Meatloaf

Here is the recipe from "Our Italian Family Tradition" Cookbook. I hope you find it as yummy as I did.

Italian Meatloaf
2 lbs. hamburger
1/2 lb. sausage (I used pork, not Italian)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 whole medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 c. oatmeal (quick oats)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. basil leaves or 1 tsp fresh basil, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. water
mozzarella cheese
ketchup
Mix all ingredients and put in a loaf pan. Spread ketchup over top and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until meat tests done.
(I waited until the meat loaf was almost done before I added the cheese.) For the rest of my meal I had salad, cauliflower w/cheese, and homemade crescent rolls. Enjoy!!

What is wrong with me? I just had a bedtime snack of a bowl of Total, and I am drooling over your recipe. I like food way too much.
