I've made smoked meatloaf stuffed with provolone. I've made bacon wrapped meatloaf fired in a pizza oven. I've made so many meatloafs trying to find The One. And I have found it. I've probably tried 40 recipes and I finally settled on this one that I developed from parts of others like a Frankenstein.

Ingredients
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 C Chopped Sweet Onions
1 Minced Jalapeno
1 Tspn Fresh Thyme
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Pepper
1 Tsp Hatch Chili Powder
3 Tbsp Worcestershire
1⁄3 C Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
2 Lbs Ground Chuck 80/20
1 Lb Ground Sweet Italian Sausage
1⁄2 C Italian Breadcrumbs
2 Large Eggs, Beaten

Sauce
1⁄4 C Ketchup
2 Tbsp Worstechire
2 Tbsp BBQ Sauce

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan. Add the onions, jalapeno, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until onions are browned (about 10 minutes).
Off the heat, add the hatch chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth, and tomato paste and mix in.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef and sausage, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork until blended uniformly.
IMPORTANT - Don't mash together while mixing. Toss it like a salad or it will be dense.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions. Shape each portion into a small oval loaf on a baking sheet.
Mix sauce into a squirt bottle and apply to top of loaves loaves in a tight s-shape. Use as much or little sauce as you prefer. It will reduce as they cook.
Bake for 45 minutes, looking for an internal temp of 155º.

If it's not the best meatloaf you've ever had, come back and yell at me. :smug:

Oh boy always fun when the pressure is on! I do think you'll love it. They come out looking something like this and I just can't tell people how perfect they are. Allowing the fats to run off into the parchment to keep the beef from "stewing" in them makes all the difference. The outsides carmelizes so well with the sauce, that you get the "char" flavor in every bite. And I love the low key bite of heat the jalapeno gives them.
