I’ve got to be honest with you. I am growing out of love with meat. I’m not judging people that eat meat. I just don’t feel like eating it anymore. With one exception. 5 Guys Burgers. Can’t say “no” to those when I’m craving protein. But all that aside, this is another vehicle of meat that I truly enjoy. My uncle crafted this meatloaf recipe and it is out of this world. When you eat it, you think you are eating steak, not ground meat. This dish is a huge Sunday Dinner Winner. I serve it with mashed red potatoes, green salad, rustic rolls, roasted carrots. Seriously, the crowds go crazy. Thanks Uncle John.

½ cup chopped yellow onion
1 small garlic clove, minced
12/ cup fresh bread crumbs
¼ cup chopped, fresh parsley

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. lowery’s seasoned pepper
1 egg
¼ cup milk
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork

In large bowl, use hands to combine all ingredients and form into a load, to fit in pan Top with parmesan cheese. Store in fridge until ready to bake. Bake at 400 for 60 minutes.

    I love adding pork to my meatloaf, but cumin, allspice, and nutmeg? This is a recipe I have to try.
