How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, combine the bread pieces with the milk and mash to a paste.
  • Add the whole egg, egg yolk, chopped parsley, sage, thyme, salt, black pepper, nutmeg and cayenne and stir until smooth.
  • Add the Parmigiano-Reggiano and dry bread crumbs and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • In a medium skillet, melt the butter.
  • Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 7 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, 1 minute longer.
  • Let cool, then transfer to the bowl.
  • Add the lamb, pork and veal and knead until evenly combined.
  • Brush a medium oval baking dish with oil.
  • Transfer the meat loaf mixture to the dish and pat it into a 4-by-12-inch oval loaf.
  • Bake for about 50 minutes, or until firm but not quite cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the red wine with the sugar, chopped tomato, molasses and allspice and bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  • Boil until the glaze is thick and syrupy, about 15 minutes.
  • Brush half of the glaze over the meat loaf.
  • Continue baking for about 20 minutes longer, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 150°; brush once more with the remaining glaze during baking.
  • Let the meat loaf rest for 15 minutes, then thickly slice and serve.
  • Make Ahead
  • The meat loaf recipe can be prepared through Step 2 and refrigerated overnight.
  • Bake before serving.
