I’ve been trying to replicate my dad’s signature meatloaf recipe for almost 3 years now and I think I’ve finally done it! Growing up my dad used to make his signature meatloaf at least twice a month. After he passed away, I started to crave that home cooked comfort meal I’d grown up eating. Little did I know that most meatloaf recipes include tomatoes or ketchup, which I never experienced in my dad’s recipe. It took a lot of tries, experimentations, and guesses to finally come up with a recipe I know my dad would be proud of… This one’s for you, daddy!
1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp Italian parsley, chopped
1 cup bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the beef, pork and beaten egg in a large mixing bowl with your hand. Add milk, working the mixture until the milk is well incorporated. Add salt, seasoning, parsley and breadcrumbs, working until mixed thoroughly.
Spray a glass Pyrex loaf pan with cooking spray and fill pan with meat mixture, being sure to fill any empty corners of the pan.
Bake for 1 hour or until meat is fully cooked.
Serve with gravy.
