Roasted Garlic. Enough said.
That was what first pulled me to this recipe, I mean meatloaf is meatloaf to me, there are many ways of making it, and I have quite a few versions on my blog but then there's this one that is made with roasted garlic and the scent while that garlic is roasting is out of this world.

Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Meatloaf
1 head garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound ground beef (80/20)
½ pound ground mild Italian sausage
2 eggs beaten
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons Worcestershire
2/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut one inch off the top of the garlic. Place garlic in aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil.
Wrap in foil and cook for 45min – 1 hour or until the garlic cloves are soft and golden brown. Once cool, remove cloves with a fork and set aside.
Turn oven down to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine ground beef, sausage, eggs, salt, pepper, rosemary, Worcestershire, breadcrumbs and roasted garlic. Mix well.
Form into a loaf. Place in a loaf pan.
Bake for 45 – 60 minutes or until meatloaf is browned and cooked through.
Slice and serve.
