I have a girlfriend that has meatloaf every Monday. Meatloaf Monday as she calls it. I love that! I always loved meatloaf as a kid. I would get excited for the leftovers, not caring for the dinner. I would beg my mother to just make me a sandwich for dinner. Please! She would never allow to. To this day when I make my family meatloaf I sneak a half sandwich before dinner. I cant help it. I don't care the calories it blows my diet. It is meatloaf and I am going for the glory! This recipe is not figure friendly, but it happens to be my family's favorite. It is the one that I go back to time and time again. This is a HUGE recipe. You can make either 2 logs of meatloaf or my favorite is to make one meatloaf and then make meatballs and freeze them for later in the month. Use a throw away pan and sseparate them on the pan. You will just need to bake them.
1/3 cup whole milk
2 slices good quality white bread with crust removed
1 pound italian sausage or ground pork
2 pounds ground beef (not too lean you can drain the fat later)
1 package prosciutto
1/2 cup onion finely chopped (or you can grate it)
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 TB low sodium Worcestershire sauce
1 cup parmesan grated (use the fresh)
1/3 cup Ketchup
salt and pepper (easy on the salt the pork is salty)
Preheat oven 325
remove the crust from the bread. You could make croutons out of it if you don't like wasting it!
put into the oven and bake 45 minutes. After 45 minutes pull out and glaze the meatloaf.
To glaze the meatloaf take
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Chili sauce
