|½ cup barbecue sauce|

Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 1 hour. Loosen edges of meatloaf with a blunt-edged knife and turn meatloaf out onto a platter. Slice and serve.

Cook time: 1 hours 25 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
|1 tablespoon good olive oil|
|3 cups chopped yellow onions (3 onions)|
|1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves|
|2 teaspoons kosher salt|
|1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper|
|3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce|
|1/3 cup canned chicken stock or broth|
|1 tablespoon tomato paste|
|2 1/2 pounds ground chuck (81 percent lean)|
|1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs (recommended: Progresso)|
|2 extra-large eggs, beaten|
|1/2 cup ketchup (recommended: Heinz)|
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown. Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly.
- In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork. Don’t mash or the meat loaf will be dense. Shape the mixture into a rectangular loaf on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Spread the ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F and the meat loaf is cooked through. (A pan of hot water in the oven, under the meat loaf, will keep the top from cracking.) Serve hot.
