  • 10 saltine crackers
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¾ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  1. In a small bowl mix all the glaze ingredient together; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F with rack in the middle position.
  3. Process crackers in a food processor until finely ground and place them in the bottom of a large bowl; stir in milk and set aside.
  4. Place the onion and mushrooms in the now empty food processor and process until finely chopped.
  5. Add the garlic and thyme to the onion and mushroom mixture. Using the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat cook the mixture until moisture is evaporated and mixture starts to brown; set aside to cool for about 5 minutes.

  7. Remove meatloaf from the oven, spread the glaze over the tops, and continue baking until meatloaves are done. (160F)
  8. Let rest for 5 minutes and serve hot.
