DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a large loaf pan.
  • Mix 1/2 cup bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper, reserving the remaining bread crumbs to use as necessary.
  • Add the meat and use a fork to mix the ingredients uniformly.
  • Add the eggs and knead it with your hands until a "dough" ball forms, it should hold its shape and not be too dry and crumbly (add some water) or too sticky sloppy (add more bread crumbs).
  • Mold the meat mixture into the loaf pan and top with a layer of ketchup as desired.
  • Bake for 70 minutes. Slices best when cooled and tastes even better reheated as leftovers!
  • For OAMC: Slice cooled loaf and flash freeze slices on a cookie sheet. Once frozen, store in a freezer bag or container. To reheat: remove as many slices as necessary and reheat in microwave.
