I’ve never been a fan of meatloaf (polpettone), not really my thing. But this is a different story!

This Italian Meatloaf Wrapped in Pancetta is a dish that is sure to please any Italian food lover. The Italian meatloaf is made with a mix of beef and pork, some vegetables and a few secret ingredients keeping it juicy and super tasty. It is then wrapped in pancetta and cooked until it is super juicy and crispy on the outside.

This version a little like an arancini whereby it contains a small piece of mozzarella cheese that oozes out from the centre. This recipe is sure to become a family favourite for both meatloaf lovers and otherwise. Perfect for the festive season and to impress your guests!

I like it with buttery roasted potatoes and green vegetables like green beans or asparagus. But you could also serve it with a salad.
