Beef and Pork Meatloaf
Makes (2) loaves
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 lb. Ground Pork
1 Large Onion, pureed in a food processor
6 oz. Blue Cheese, crumbled* (I used our farm’s Madison)
1/4 cup Minced Garlic (about 8 cloves)
6 TB Breadcrumbs
1 TB Italian Herb Blend (salt-free)
4 tsp. Black Pepper
2 tsp. Powdered Garlic
2 tsp. Powdered Onion
Mix all ingredients together. Microwave a test piece and adjust for salt if necessary – this varies according to the amount of salt in the blue cheese.
Let stand in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour.
Preheat oven to 350f.
Transfer mixture to two ungreased 9-inch loaf pans. Bake until the internal temperature is 160f, about 1½ - 2 hours.
*If cheese is very salty, reduce the amount by half.
I served it with creamed leeks and steamed squash. The best part is the crunchy crispy top!
