For the Meatloaf

  • ¾ C milk
  • 1 pkg stovetop stuffing mix
  • ½ lb ground beef
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • ½ lb ground veal
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ C parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

For the Garlic Butter Sauce

  • ½ C butter
  • 6-8 garlic cloves diced
  • 1 C chicken broth
  • 4-6 thyme sprigs


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • Combine the milk and the stuffing in a medium bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes to soak.
  • Combine the ground meats, eggs, parmesan, salt and pepper, and the stuffing milk mixture in a large bowl. Gently mix with your hands until combined. DO NOT overmix. This will make the meatloaf dry and tough.
  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, form the meatloaf in to a log shape. It should be about 4-5" high.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°F.
  • Serve with garlic butter sauce and enjoy!

For the Garlic Butter Sauce

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until it's fragrant and softenend (2-3 minutes).
  • Add the chicken stock and the thyme. Reduce for 10-15 minutes or so.
  • Take off the heat and serve over meatloaf.



Don't overmix your meatloaf! This will make it tough and dry. 
Use whatever flavor of stuffing you like! I loved the chicken, but feel free to try pork, turkey, cornbread, or herb.
