Sauté onion in butter and oil until tender but not browned. Add garlic and sauté 1/2 minute. Set aside
In a large bowl place beef and add onion mixture, salt, pepper and eggs.
Heat milk in a medium saucepan. Add bread cubes. Mix with a whisk until it becomes a paste. Add to the beef mix.
Use your clean hands to mix the meatloaf together
Divide mixture into 4 loaves on 2 shallow baking pans covered in parchment paper. Rinse hands in cold water to help pat each loaf into shape. This helps with the stickiness.
Drizzle ketchup over loaves making a pattern.
Bake at 350 degrees F about 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
This is my mom’s recipe which I’ve adapted. She would add a squirt of mustard and ketchup to the mixture. But I place ketchup on the top of the loaves and serve it also at the table to dip each bite into!
