this is a favorite:
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c. milk
2/3 c. fine dry bread crumbs or 2 c. soft bread crumbs (I use Panko bread crumbs)
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
2 Tb. snipped fresh parsley
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried sage, basil, or oregano, crushed
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1.5 lbs. lean ground beef or ground pork
1/4 c. ketchup
2 TB. brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1. In a medium bowl combine eggs and milk; stir in bread crumbs, onion and spices. Add ground meat; mix well. Lightly pat mixture into a 9x13 pan (it won't fill it up, but make an oval shape out of it.)
I spray PAM on the pan first.
2. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 to 11/4 hours or until temp reaches 160 degrees F. In a small bowl combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard; spread over meat. Bake for 10 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
Notes: The secret to a good meatloaf is to mix it lightly with your hands and not overdo it. I also like the grass fed beef for this recipe. Finally, I actually double the sauce ingredients for the ketchup topping!
