Fantastic Meatloaf


 

SERVINGS: 8 Servings

Ingredients

Meatloaf:

  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 6 slices White Bread
  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 cup (heaping) Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Minced Flat-leaf Parsley
  • 4 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 10 slices Thin/regular Bacon (Optional)

 

Sauce:

  • 1-1/2 cup Ketchup
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • Tabasco To Taste

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour milk over the bread slices. Allow it to soak in for several minutes.
    Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Add the beaten eggs.
    With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan lined with foil, which will allow the fat to drain.
  2. Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
    Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.
    Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top. Bake for another 15 minutes. Slice and serve with remaining sauce.

 

This is a great meatloaf that goes well with mashed potatoes and peas or green beans. The leftovers make a wonderful sandwich for lunch the next day.
