Meat loaf is best when made from freshly ground meat. You can grind it yourself using an electric or hand-cranked meat grinder, or ask your butcher to grind the meat fresh for you. If ground veal is not available, use more pork or beef.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 or 4 slices white bread
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 lb. ground beef chuck
  • 1/2 lb. ground pork shoulder or butt
  • 1/2 lb. ground veal shoulder or leg
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

Directions:

Position a rack in the center of an oven and preheat to 350º F.

In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion, celery and garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside.

Tear the bread slices into small pieces, transfer to a food processor and pulverize the bread into crumbs. In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs and milk, stir until blended and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the onion-celery mixture to the bread mixture and stir until blended. Add the beef, pork, veal, tomato sauce, egg, salt and pepper and fold together gently until blended. Transfer the mixture to a 2 1/2-lb. loaf pan and, using your hands, shape the mixture into an oblong loaf. Spread the ketchup evenly over the top. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat loaf registers 165ºF, about 1 1/2 hours.
Serves 4 to 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great meatloaf! I have made this meatloaf and the cheesy meatloaf and both are great recipes. I personally prefer the cheesy meatloaf, while my husband LOVES this one. Out of the two, this one is definitely the easier and quicker recipe. It is super moist and delicious. I used store bought bread crumbs and it came out fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moist & flavorful I made this as instructed with the exception of chopping the celery, onions, garlic (and I added carrots) to a fine dice via the food processor and sauteeing as directed. I did not have tomato sauce so I subbed an equal amount of chili sauce (Bennett's) and topped with the same in place of ketchup in an equal amount per the recipe. This smelled so good and I believe the fine dice of the vegetables imparted such a moistness to the finished dish. As an added bonus, my kids will never realize how many vegetables they're actually eating!
