Loaf of Meat

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground chicken
8 oz sausage (spicy, casings removed)
2 cups fresh bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs (beaten)
1 teaspoon hot paprika
1 teaspoon Goya Adobo seasoning
2 teaspoons McCormick's Montreal Seasoning

Preheat oven to 350. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add onion and garlic. Cook until soft but not browned. Remove from heat and let cool. In a large bowl, combine meats, bread crumbs, eggs, spices and milk. Mix thoroughly then add garlic and onion, mix again until combined. Shape into loaf pan* and bake for about an hour. The sausages may have pork in them so make sure it's cooked all the way through (no pink!) before serving.

*This makes a huge amount of meatloaf, but don't over fill the pan, it will splatter. Instead, shape some into a miniloaf or muffin pan and make baby sized meatloaves. They will need a shorter cooking time though, so keep an eye on them.
