Instructions
 

For the Meatloaf

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs and milk and stir. Let the breadcrumbs hydrate in the milk for about 20 minutes.
  • In a larger bowl, combine the ground beef with the remaining ingredients including the hydrated bread crumbs. Shape into a loaf with your hands and place on a baking sheet or alternately use a loaf pan.
  • Bake until the internal temperature of the loaf is 150 degrees- it will rest up to 160. Cool slightly before slicing and serving.

For the Tomato Relish

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and dress with the garlic, sliced onion, olive oil, rosemary, lemon zest and coriander seed.
  • Lay out skin side up on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast until tomatoes begin to brown and blister- about 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and transfer the blistered tomatoes to a bowl. Season with the balsamic vinegar, red pepper flakes, sea salt and black pepper.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
