Meatloaf Marsala

I happen to really like chicken Marsala and decided I could get those same great flavors into a meatloaf. Because who doesn’t want to elevate a loaf of meat?

I also have a Crock Pot Chicken Marsala and a Marsala wine sauce with mushrooms that is so delicious!

What type of wine is Marsala?

Marsala wine comes in both red and white, and sweet and dry. It is a fortified wine, which means additional alcohol is added to bring it’s alcohol content up.

Marsala wine is originated in the small town of Marsala in Sicily, Italy.

Which type of Marsala wine is used to cook with?

Dry Marsala wine is traditionally used and preferred in cooking savory dishes.

Meatloaf Marsala can be made ahead. I recommend mixing all of the meatloaf ingredients and refrigerating for up to 24 hours prior to baking.

The Marsala sauce can be made ahead as well. Store in an airtight container until ready to use within 3-4 days. Once it is ready to be eaten, place in a saucepan on the stove and heat through.

Meatloaf Marsala is baked ground beef, Italian flavors, and a Marsala wine and sautéed mushroom gravy poured over the top.



  • 2 lbs Ground Beef or Ground Chicken
  • 2 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 3/4 cup Broth (Use beef broth for the ground beef. If using ground chicken use chicken broth.)
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan

Marsala Sauce

  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 12 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Beef Broth
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Marsala Wine
  • 3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all meatloaf ingredients until well mixed. Place on baking pan and form in to the shape of a loaf.
  3. Bake for 50-60 minutes until juices run clear and center is no longer pink. The center should read 165º F for ground chicken and 160º F for ground beef. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. While the meatloaf cooks, make the gravy by melting butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once melted, add mushrooms and cook until golden brown. Add garlic and cook 30-60 seconds more until fragrant. Add broth, Marsala wine, heavy whipping cream, and parsley. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Serve over top of meatloaf and top with fresh parsley.
