DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown. (We cooked ours longer, as we like them caramelized, 10-15 minutes).
  • Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth, and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork.
  • DON'T MASH or meatloaf will be dense.
  • Divide the mixture into 6(10-11 oz)portions.(That is what the recipe calls for but we made them about 4-6 oz).
  • Then shape each portion into a small loaf on a baking sheet.
  • Spread about a tablespoon of ketchup on top of each portion.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the internal temperature is 155º-160ºF and the meat loaves are cooked through.
  • Serve hot.
