  • 2 cups minced onions
  • 2 Tbs butter or oil
  • 1 cup lightly pressed down bread crumbs
  • 2 lb ground beef chuck
  • 1 lb ground pork or sausage
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 2 whole large eggs
  • 1/2 cup beef bouillon
  • 2/3 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 whole Garlic cloves puréed
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp arid oregano
  • 1 oz bay leaf 3 bay leaves


  • Sauté the onions in the butter or oil 5 minutes or so, until tender and translucent; raise heat and sauté a few minutes longer, until lightly browned. Scrape into the mixing bowl.
  • Toss all the rest of the ingredients except for the bay leaves rather gently with the onions. Sauté a spoonful, and taste, carefully - if you are to serve the meat loaf cold, exaggerate a bit on the seasoning. Either form into a loaf shape on a buttered jelly-roll pan. Top with the bay leaves.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and set the meat loaf in the lower middle level.
  • Bake about 1-1/2 hours.
  • It is done when the juices run almost clear with a pale pink tinge, the meat is lightly springy to the touch. A meat thermometer should read 155°F - do not remove the thermometer until the meat rests before serving time, or the juices will burst out.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes. Pour off fat and juices. Transfer the loaf to a board or platter. Serve hot with salsa , or tomato sauce.
