I sort of accidentally made a dynamite meatloaf last night:

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground veal
1 lb ground lamb
salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder, onion powder

About a cup and a half or two cups of Panko bread crumbs

Then the liquids:

About a cup or a cup and half of homemade tomato sauce ( i get a container of cherry tomatoes from Costco; throw them in a pot with olive oil, salt, black pepper, a few red pepper flakes or tabasco, and a couple cloves of garlic, chopped; cook the tomatoes med-low until tender and skin coming off, then pour in red wine, chicken stock and a little balsamic; keep cooking for a while and then go at it with a hand blender to puree; cook down to desired consistency; makes great pizza sauce, too.)

then the real kicker is that instead of the standard recipe where you add milk to the Panko, i added Yolumba Muscat desert wine (because I didn't have any milk). probably one and half to two cups. (notice i did not add any egg, as is also common.)

Mix it all together with your hands until it's thoroughly blended. Form in a dish and pour more muscat over the top. Put in a 450F oven for 50-55 minutes.

Tender, tasty, fantastic– best meatloaf I've ever made. Leftovers make great sandwiches. A skilled griller could probably add extra dimensions.

p.s. got the Yolumba Muscat at Costco, too.
