~ Enriching Everyday Life

4 T. butter
1/2 c. finely chopped onion
1/2 c. finely chopped celery
1/2 c. finely chopped carrot
2  cloves minced garlic
2 eggs
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1/2 t. salt
2 t. chili powder
1 t. allspice
1/2 t. pepper
1 1/2 c. fine bread crumbs
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a 9x13-inch pan. 

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat, then add onion, celery, carrots, and garlic.  Saute until veggies begin to brown. 

While the veggies are cooking, whisk eggs, ketchup, milk, salt, chili powder, allspice, and pepper in a large bowl.  Add browned veggies and bread crumbs to egg mixture.  Add beef and pork until thoroughly combined.  Place in greased pan and form into loaf.  Bake 45 minutes, then let stand for 10 minutes before serving. 

Notes: You can also shape this into a loaf in a greased crockpot and cook on high for four hours or on low for eight. We've successfully done both four hours on high in the crockpot and the oven version. I once put some rolled oats through the food processor and used the powder instead of bread crumbs.
