Mediterranean Meat Loaf
To make ahead: Place the reserved cooked meat loaf or meatballs in an airtight container. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Tips: You can substitute lean ground bison (buffalo) in place of ground beef.
The internal color of a meat loaf or meatball is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef meat loaf or meatball cooked to 160 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a meat loaf or meatball, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of the loaf or ball.
Variation: Use this Mediterranean Meat Loaf recipe as a base for the Mediterranean Meatballs. Meal prep a big batch of these flavorful meatballs, which can be used in the Mediterranean Pita Melts and the Meatball Lasagna.
