      1/2  cup           fresh bread crumbs -- (about 2 slices)
      1/4  cup           milk
        2  tablespoons   olive oil
      1/2  cup           onions, -- finely diced
        1  garlic        clove, -- minced
        1  pound         ground beef chuck
      1/2  pound         ground pork butt or sweet sausage meat
        1                large egg, -- lightly beaten
      1/3  cup           grated Romano or Parmesan -- or sharp cheddar cheese
      1/4  teaspoon      fennel seeds
      1/4  teaspoon      dried oregano
      1/4  cup           chopped parsley
                         Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 
 
 Soak the bread crumbs in milk. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly
 grease a loaf pan.
 
 Heat the olive oil. When hot add the onions and saute for about 8 minutes
 or until golden and beginning to brown. Add the garlic and saute for a few
 seconds. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the contents to a
 mixing bowl.
 
 Add the soaked bread crumbs, ground chuck and ground pork butt and mix with
 1 egg. Add grated cheese, fennel, oregano, and parsley. Season to taste
 with salt and pepper. (Saute some of the mixture before tasting and
 adjusting for seasoning.)
 
 Transfer the mix to a loaf pan and bake at high heat for 15 minutes. Lower
 the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 1 hour or until the internal
 temperature reaches 165 degrees. Let rest 15 minutes before cutting.
