Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs – fresh if you can
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 lbs ground beef (mixed meat if you like – beef, lamb & pork)
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese , grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 small onion , grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Glaze

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup hot pepper jelly
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • dash of salt
  • dash of Texas Pete

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Soak bread crumbs in milk until the absorbed – about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Shape the mixture into a loaf on a parchment lined baking pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Spread glaze over meat loaf and cook for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, add remaining glaze and cook until an instant-read thermometer shows 160 degrees - about 8 to 10 minutes. 
    ~Note: for the last 5 to 8 minutes, I turn my oven to broil so that the glaze gets nicely browned on top.
  • Let rest for 10 minutes then serve.
