Balsamic Glazed Meatloaf



2 lbs. lean ground beef

1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

1/2 cup whole milk

3 tablespoons ketchup, divided

2 tablespoons Vinesation Neapolitan Herb balsamic vinegar, divided

1/2 teaspoon Vinesation Garlic Infused Olive Oil 

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

2 large egg

1/2 tablespoon brown sugar

Finely chopped parsley for garnish 



Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl add breadcrumbs and pour the milk directly over them.  Add meat, 1 tablespoon ketchup, 1 tablespoon Neapolitan Herb balsamic vinegar, nutmeg, pepper, Garlic Infused Olive Oil, salt and onion powder. Set aside.

In a small bowl, crack egg and beat it slightly.  Add egg to the meat mixture.  Combine well with hands, do not overwork the meat mixture.

Form meatloaf in bowl, into a loaf form and then transfer to a roasting pan (I use glass).  Free form into a loaf shape.  If you notice cracks in the loaf, run your hands under warm water and smooth meat.  Set meatloaf aside.

In a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons ketchup, 1 tablespoon Neapolitan Herb balsamic vinegar and 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar.  Mix well with a fork. 

Apply glaze evenly to the top of your meatloaf.

Cover pan with aluminum foil.  Place meatloaf in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes.  Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Allow to rest uncovered for 10 minutes.  Slice and serve with your favorite sides!
