  • 1 Onion, finely choppes
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 2 bread slices
  • ¼ cup of Milk
  • ¼ cup of Chopped Parsley
  • 1 cup of Parmesan cheese

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

FOR GLAZE

  • ¾ cup of Ketchup
  • 2 tbspns of Tomato Paste
  • ¼ cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp of Dried Mustard
  • 1 tsp of Paprika
  • 1 tsp of Granulated Garlic
  • 1 tsp of Granulated Onion

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • In a sauté pan over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil for about 6 to 8 minutes or until soft and translucent, allow to cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, put the slices of bread and pour the milk over them, let them sit for a few minutes or until the bread soaks up all the milk.
  • In a large bowl, combine the beef, the milk soaked bread, cooked onion and garlic, parsley, parmiggiano, worchesteshire sauce, eggs, salt and pepper. Mix until everything is well combined but don’t over mix and compact the mixture too much otherwise your meatloaf will be tough.
  • Place a cooling rack over a baking sheet (or use a broiler pan) and place the meat mixture onto it and form it into a loaf, set aside.
