1 small yellow onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, smashed
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup whole milk
2 slices of white bread, torn into pieces
1/2 cup panko
Large handful of parsley leaves
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 lb ground beef (try to use 85/15)
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Put the onion, garlic, egg, milk, bread, panko, parsley and salt in a food processor and process for about 10 seconds until well combined. Pour the mixture into a bowl and, using your hands, combine with the ground beef until fully incorporated. It will be a fairly moist mixture.
Line a large baking sheet lined with foil. Place a wire rack on top of that and also line that with foil. Poke some holes in the foil on the rack to allow the fat to drip through to the lined baking sheet. Form the meat mixture into a large loaf and place on the foil lined rack.
Mix the ketchup, mustard and sugar in a bowl until well combined. Pour or brush over meatloaf.
Bake in the oven for 70 minutes. Let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into it.
Good ol' meatloaf. Simple comfort food. I have never had a go to recipe for this classic but I found a good starting base this morning on allrecipes and messed with it. It came out absolutely delicious.
Personally, I find meatloaf worth it just for the leftovers for sandwiches the next day. And I know I'm not alone there. Looking forward to tomorrow already.
Update: Steve sent me a picture of his sandwich he made for lunch. *Thud*
