Holy cream sauce. I’m on a roll! Sorry to share so many creamy recipes…I can’t help it. I love them so 🙂  This little gem of a recipe is not your traditional meatloaf but equally delicious.  If you can’t find ground veal don’t worry. You can also use ground beef or a ground meatloaf mix – usually containing ground pork, veal and beef.  My favorite part of this recipe is the use of the Gorgonzola cheese.  I’m not usually a fan of anything blue cheese related. However, I found the Gorgonzola to be mild and when melted into the sauce it caused just the right amount of cheesy flavor.  I also like to sprinkle a little on top too….so delicious! I also added directions for smashed potatoes with prosciutto and cheese.  The perfect side dish!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine veal with egg, breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, sage, salt, and black pepper. Form 4 (1-inch thick) oval shaped meat loaves.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil. Brown meatloaves 2 to 3 minutes on each side then transfer to a nonstick baking sheet and finish in the oven, 6 to 8 minutes.

Return skillet to heat, add remaining tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil to the pan and the mushrooms and the garlic. Cook mushrooms until dark and tender, 5 to 6 minutes, then add salt and pepper and 1 cup chicken stock to deglaze the pan.

In another medium saucepot add butter and let it melt. Once melted add flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in milk and season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Reduce the sauce a few minutes to thicken a bit.

Add the milk sauce to the mushrooms and stir in Gorgonzola cheese to melt. If the sauce is too thick simply thin out with a little more chicken stock. Serve the meatloaves with Gorgonzola-mushroom gravy over top.

    This looks like an Atkins diet dream (minus the potatoes)! Are you still doing WW?
