I love comfort; comfortable clothes, comforting comments and most of all, COMFORT FOOD!
2 lbs lean ground beef
1 Cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup milk (2% or whole)
3 Tbsp ketchup, divided
2 Tbsp Neapolitan Herb Balsamic Vinegar, divided
1 tsp Garlic Olive Oil
1 tsp Za’atar (or other favourite dried spice blend)
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion or garlic powder
2 large eggs
1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
Finely chopped parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl add breadcrumbs and pour the milk over. Add meat, 1 Tbsp ketchup, 1 Tbsp Neapolitan Herb Balsamic, Za’atar, pepper, Gourmet Garlic Olive Oil, salt and onion powder.
In a small bowl, crack eggs and beat slightly, add to the meat mixture. Combine well with hands, but don’t overwork.
Form into a loaf and transfer to a roasting pan.
If you notice cracks in the loaf, run your hands under warm water and smooth meat. Set meatloaf aside.
In a small bowl combine remaining ketchup, Neapolitan Herb Balsamic and 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar.
Mix well with a fork. Apply glaze evenly to the top of your meatloaf.
Tent the pan with aluminum foil.
Place meatloaf in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes.
Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, allow to rest uncovered for 10 minutes.
Slice, garnish and serve with your favourite side!
