This mushroom meatloaf is a mix of ground beef and a generous amount of Portobello mushrooms. Smother it in some brown gravy or marsala sauce and serve with mashed potatoes and some greens for a comforting and elegant homecooked meal.

It’s a slightly less conventional take than the classic meatloaf, just like this Italian-style meatloaf with its promising layer of melted cheese on top and its Parmesan cheese and Italian breadcrumb filling topped with marinara sauce.

For this mushroom meatloaf, you’ll need gravy as part of the magic. Any kind of gravy will work although I’d recommend either mushroom, onion, brown gravy, or a Marsala sauce. Let’s start cooking!

MUSHROOM MEATLOAF RECIPE TIPS

Here are all the ingredients to make this wonderful meatloaf: ground beef, breadcrumbs, mushrooms, onions, garlic, eggs and some seasonings of Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper.

Find the largest mixing bowl you have and use your hands. Your hands are your best tools here, so dive right into it. Form it into a nice loaf shape you can bake on a baking sheet later. It isn’t as time-consuming as shaping meatballs. I’m used to making a big batch of 50-ish homemade Parmesan meatballs and this did not take up as much time.

As for the mushrooms, you can use shiitake or portobello. Shiitake was kinda expensive so I went with portobello mushrooms. Do yourself a favor and buy them pre-sliced if you can. The bulk of the work is blitzing it in a food processor so it’s finely chopped. It didn’t pulse well in the blender for me so I had to use my teeny tiny food processor and do it in batches of one million. So pre-sliced mushrooms will cut down some of your time at the very least.

Then we bake it. At this point, you can sit there twiddling your thumbs, or clean up, or go chase the cat around the house. It’ll take about 45 minutes but that’s really not bad for one of those cook-once-eat-all-week-long meals. Unless you’re cooking for plenty of company. Let it rest a little so it doesn’t fall apart when you slice it. The longer you let it rest, the easier it is to slice through it without having meatloaf bits everywhere.

And there you have it. Now bring in those mashed potatoes and maybe some sauteed greens and you have one heck of a dinner. Enjoy!

    I modified just a little. Used pork and hamburger, fried the onion and mushroom in a little butter first and also left out the garlic because it causes migraines for me.

    Down right the tastiest Meatloaf I have ever had in my 60+ years of average meatloaf consumption! I did halve the recipe and was amazed how big the loaf was. Served with mashed spuds (made extra spuds), green peas, and beef gravy as suggested. The leftover everything from this meal will make an amazing Shepherd’s Pie. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Nicole 🙂 I looooove taking dark, moody pics but I don’t do it as often as I’d like though. Meatloaf may not be that popular with the folks but at least I got some pretty pics out of it!

    Mushrooms are seriously underrated. They are seriously delicious. I have to make this, seriously.

    Maybe mushrooms shouldn’t be so serious all the time and they’d get noticed more.
