Tia Maria’s Portuguese Style Meatloaf
2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
1 cup dried seasoned breadcrumbs
1 slice of fresh bread (crumbled, I use a grater)
1 medium onion (finely minced)
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons of my spice mix (order here on Lisbon Blue Etsy shop)
2 to 3 tablespoons minced parsley
1 cup ketchup
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Shape into loaf and place in a baking dish. Top with ketchup. Cook at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour or longer until it reaches 170 degrees on a meat thermometer.
I like a well done crispy edge on my meatloaf but this is optional.
