Paradise By the Rangehood Light

1 large egg
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
around a cup of bread crumbs, moistened with milk
3/4 cup diced onions (yellow and red)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 - 2 tbsp of sundried tomato pesto (thank you evergreeen farmer's market)
balsamic vinegar
Worcestershire sauce
dried parsley (only because I didn't have fresh)
kosher salt
fresh ground black pepper

I think that was it...

Preaheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat some oil in a sauté pan, put the onions in and stir to coat (tossing this many will make a mess), cover and cook on low until clear but not browned. Let them cool a bit.

Beat the egg in a mixing bowl

Put everything (including the onions) in the bowl. Mix it all with your hands (this is why you let the onions cool a bit, otherwise - ow).

Taste-test it by frying up a small bit in a pan (maybe the pan you did the onions in?), and eating it. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Transfer to a loaf pan, or shape it foil on a baking sheet, or whatever you want to do.

Put pan in oven for 1 hour. Remove and let sit for 10-15 min.

Enjoy the kick-ass meatloaf you just made.
