Ingredients- 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1½ cups chopped onion, 3 minced garlic cloves, 2 large eggs, ½ cup milk, 2 teaspoons Dijon must@rd, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, 1½ teaspoon fresh marjoram, 1½ teaspoon fresh thyme, a pinch of salt and ground pepper, 1 pound chuck, ½ pound veal, ½ pound ground pork, 1½ cups fresh bread crumbs, ¼ cup fresh minced parsley, ½ cup ketchup, ¼ cup light brown sugar, 1½ tablespoon cider vinegar.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Over moderate heat, add oil to a skillet and heat until it is hot, but not smoking. Then, add the garlic and onion and stir for around 5 minutes, before setting it to the side to cool. Next, whisk the eggs, milk, must@rd, hot sauce, marjoram, thyme, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Then, add the me@ts, bread crumbs, parsley, and the cooked onion mixture. Stir together the ketchup, sugar, and vinegar in a small bowl and set it aside. Put the meat mixture in an oiled loaf pan and brush the meat with the ketchup glaze and bake for about 45 minutes, until the glaze has set. Brush the meatloaf again with the remaining glaze and bake for 15 minutes more, then glaze it again. Total baking is about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
