  • Heat oven to 425 degrees (F).
  • Combine the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and place over low heat.
  • Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft and translucent, don't brown. Add parsley, basil and tomato paste and cook for about a minute. Set aside to cool.
  • In a small bowl, combine Panko and buttermilk, let this set for 5 - 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, place beef, pork, cheese, salt and pepper, the onion/garlic mixture and the Panko/buttermilk mixture. Mix with your hands until combined.
  • In a 13x9x2 rimmed baking pan, form the mixture into a loaf center of the pan, don't touch the sides of the pan. Brush sides and top with some glaze, then bake for 75 minutes, brush on more glaze after 45 minutes. Keep the leftover glaze warm and stir occasionally.
  • After baking, remove the meatloaf from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes; then slice and serve hot with leftover glaze as a sauce.
