  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a medium sized sauté pan, begin sweating the onions with the butter and 1/4 tsp Kosher salt.
  • Add the garlic, and continue to cook.
  • Add the smoked paprika and chipotle powder and lightly toast with the onion mixture.
  • Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • Meanwhile, soak the bread in the milk until it is completely soft and hydrated.
  • In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients with the onion mixture, and the soaked bread, squeezing out the excess milk beforehand.
  • Pack into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray and bake at 350°F for one hour.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly (it will be easier to slice.)
  • Slice the meatloaf and serve it with your favorite mashed potatoes or potato salad. This meatloaf also makes for a great late night snack, as well as a cold sandwich!
