Meatloaf With Caramelized Onions

Ingredients

1 pound lean ground beef (I use either 90%% lean or ground bison)
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs (I finely grind one slice of whatever bread I have in the hou
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (just a blend of marjoram, thyme,
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
For glaze:
1 tablespoon ketchup
3/4 teaspoon soy sauce
For the caramelized onions:
1 medium onion, sliced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon sugar

Preparation

1
Preheat the oven to 350°. Place ground beef in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
2
In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients: the fresh bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.
3
In another small bowl, combine the wet ingredients: the ketchup, Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
4
Now pour dry ingredients and wet ingredients into the large bowl with the ground beef.
5
Mix with your hands until well combined. Be careful not to overwork the meat, or it may become tough.
6
Shape the meat mixture into a loaf shape and place into a shallow baking dish.
7
Make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk the ketchup and soy sauce. Pour onto meatloaf and spread evenly.
8
Bake the meatloaf for 45 minutes.
9
While the meatloaf is in the oven, make the caramelized onions. Heat 1 tsp oil and 1 tsp butter in a small pan over medium heat. Add sliced onions to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.
10
Lower the heat slightly and add 1 tsp sugar and 1 TBSP water to the pan. Stir and continue to cook the onions for 5 additional minutes until they reach a deep brown color.

Slice the meatloaf and top with a spoonful of caramelized onions.

About

Meatloaf. I know it's got to be one of the most unattractive foods, but good Lord it's delicious. I created this recipe a few years ago and it never fails me. I love to top the thick slices of meat with caramelized onions. Their sweetness complements the rich, beefy flavor perfectly.
