Ingredients:

salt
10 ounces mushrooms, sliced thin
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme minced or 1/8 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons Three Pepper Ketchup (Original, Spicy, or More Spicy)
1/4 cup water
1 slice high-quality white bread, torn into pieces
20 oz 93 percent lean ground beef
1 large egg 
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Glaze:

6 tablespoons Three Pepper Ketchup
2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Method:

  1. For the Meatloaf:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet and lay a sheet of tin foil on the rack. Poke holes in foil about every inch.
  2. Heat the oil in a 10" nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and 1/2 tsp salt and cooked until softened about 6 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for about another 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium high and cook until the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic, thyme, and Three Pepper Ketchup and cook about 1 minute. Stir in the water and cook until thickened about 30 seconds. Set aside to cool.
  3. Process the cooled vegetable mixture and bread together in a food processor until smooth, about 10 seconds. Add the beef and pulse to combine, about 5 pulses. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg white, parsley, soy sauce, mustard, pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add the processed beef mixture and mix with your hands until uniform.
  4. Press the mixture into a compact mass, then turn it out onto the prepared foil. Form mixture into a loaf. Bake about 35 to 40 minutes until temperature registers 160 degrees. Remove meatloaf from oven and adjust rack to 8 " below broiler and heat broiler.
  5. For the Glaze:  Simmer Three Pepper Ketchup and brown sugar in small pan over medium heat until thick and syrupy. Spread the glaze over the meatloaf and broil until glaze begins to bubble, about 3 minutes. Let the meatloaf rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
