Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. To Prepare Meatloaf:.
  3. Process bread in food processor until fine crumbs form, and place in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Mince the vegetables and parsley in food processor and add to bread crumbs.
  5. Add rest of ingredients to the mixing bowl. Using your hands, knead everything until thoroughly combined. Texture should be wet but tight enough to hold a free-form shape.
  6. Place meat in a meatloaf baking pan (with the lift-out rack). If you don't have such a pan, set a wire baking rack on top of an 11x17 baking pan. Place a 5x11 piece of parchment paper on top of wire rack so meat loaf won't fall though.
  7. Using your hands, form the loaf and place on the parchment paper.
  8. TOPPING:.
  9. Mix together the ketchup, mustard and brown sugar until sugar is well incorporated.
  10. Spread topping mixture on top of meatloaf. Any left over topping is wonderful served with the meatloaf (I usually double this sauce -- just to make sure I have enough for serving).
  11. Bake loaf approximately 55 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into the middle registers 160°F Allow to cool on rack 15 minutes prior to serving.
