This is one of the best meatloaf recipes. I designed it from scratch.. It’s very similar to my grandma’s meatball recipe (I stole the walnut idea from her). I love the walnuts in this recipe. It adds a wonderful flavor. The one person in our family that doesn’t like Meatloaf changed his mind after I made this recipe. Serve with salad or another vegetable, bread, and enjoy!!
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 slice white bread (crusts removed, chopped finely)
1 small onion , finely chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped
2 teaspoon fresh oregano
1 teaspoons fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
