Mom's Meatloaf

Mom's Meatloaf

Serves: 8

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


1 small yellow onion, diced
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 pound ground pork
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 poblano pepper, diced small
3 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped
2 cups ketchup
3/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 eggs
1 cup panko bread crumbs
3 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium sized skillet, saute the onion over medium heat until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

In a large mixing bowl, combine pork, beef, onion mixture, and all other ingredients, reserving 1 cup ketchup.

On a baking pan, form the mixture into one large loaf or two medium-sized loaves. Spread the top with the remaining ketchup and place into the oven. Cook until the internal temperature is 155 degrees on a thermometer, approximately 45 minutes.

Serve warm.
