Directions

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F and arrange a rack in the upper third. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

Add the oil to a medium pan over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the onion, garlic and thyme and cook until softened, about 3 minutes; set aside.

In a large bowl, add the eggs, buttermilk, mustard, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper. Whisk until the eggs are broken up and evenly combined. Add the onion mixture, ground pork, sausage, cracker crumbs, and parsley. Mix until thoroughly combined (don't squeeze mixture).

Dampen your hands, and put the meat on the prepared baking sheet. Form the meat into a 9 by 5- inch loaf. Arrange the bacon across the top of the loaf and bake until the internal temperature is 155 degrees F, on an instant-read thermometer, about 55 to 65 minutes. Remove from the oven to a cutting board and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

    I wasn't sure about all the pork but it was great very moist, I did tweak the recipe a bit I made a topping of ketchup,dry mustard,chilli sauce and brown sugar then wrapped it in bacon my husband and I like it a little sweet.We laugh about me trying new recipes is it a keeper or not, your meatloaf is a keeper.

    I was skeptical about an all-pork meatloaf. I figured it would turn out like a hockey puck that could be kicked up and down the street without harm. I do like pork, though, so I tried it and WOW. What a pleasant surprise!! It was juicy and tender and, oh, so flavorful. Spices were right-on. I couldn't find the bratwurst Aida recommended so used Italian sausage with good results. We loved this dinner. This will be made over and over in my home. Thanks Aida!!
