Tia Maria’s Portuguese Style Meatloaf

My meatloaf comes out flavorful because I use my spice mix recipe found in my second cookbook or simply use the ingredients listed. I also use fresh bread crumbs in the meat mix which makes the loaf moist. I often double the recipe to make 2 meatloaves for sandwiched during the week.

2 pounds ground beef

2 eggs

1 cup dried seasoned breadcrumbs

1 slice of fresh bread (crumbled, I use a grater)

1 medium onion (finely minced)

3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon chili sauce or 1 tablespoon pimenta muida
2 to 3 tablespoons minced parsley

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

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.
