    tsp dijon mustard

  • 1

    tsp hot sauce (optional)

  • 1 1/2

    tsp fresh marjoram, or 1/2 teaspoon dried, crumbled

  • 1 1/2

    tsp fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried, crumbled

  • salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1

    lb chuck

    lb pork, twice-ground

  • 1 1/2

    cups fresh bread crumbs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a skillet over moderate heat, add the oil. Heat the oil until hot, but not smoking. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside and let cool. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, mustard, and hot sauce together. Add marjoram, thyme, salt, and pepper.In a large mixing bowl, combine the meats, egg-milk mixture, bread crumbs, parsley, and the cooked onion mixture. In a small bowl stir together ketchup, sugar, and vinegar. Set aside. Form 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture into a small patty, add it to a small oiled skillet, and cook until no longer pink. Taste for seasoning and adjust. The best way to make the meatloaf is to use a baking sheet, lined with foil. Place a cooling rack on top. Cut a piece of foil to be larger than a the loaf— and shape the meat into a loaf. Using a metal skewer, poke holes along the foil…usually every other hole. Place the shaped loaf on top of the foil. Brush meat with ketchup glaze.Bake in oven for about 45 minutes, until glaze has set. Brush meat loaf with remaining glaze and bake for 15 minutes more; glaze again. My oven takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the desired doneness. Times do vary, so allow for that! Internal temperature of loaf should be 160 degrees F.
