Classic Meatloaf

1/2 c Fresh bread crumbs; (about 2 slices)
1/4 c Milk
2 tb Olive oil
1/2 c Onions, finely diced
1 Garlic clove, minced
1 lb Ground beef chuck
1/2 lb Ground pork butt or sweet sausage meat
1 Large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 c Grated Romano or Parmesan; or sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 ts Fennel seeds
1/4 ts Dried oregano
1/4 c Chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Soak the bread crumbs in milk. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan.


Heat the olive oil. When hot add the onions and saute for about 8 minutes or until golden and beginning to brown. Add the garlic and saute for a few seconds. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the contents to a mixing bowl.


Add the soaked bread crumbs, ground chuck and ground pork butt and mix with 1 egg. Add grated cheese, fennel, oregano, and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Saute some of the mixture before tasting and adjusting for seasoning.)


Transfer the mix to a loaf pan and bake at high heat for 15 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 1 hour or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Let rest 15 minutes before cutting.


Yield: 6 servings
