4 slices white bread, torn into pieces
1 and 3/4 lbs ground beef
3/4 lb ground pork
1 med. yellow onion, peeled and cut into eights
2 cloves garlic
2 stalks celery, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 large egg
3/4 C ketchup
4 tsp. dry mustard
1 T. coarse salt
2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 T. packed light-brown sugar

Preheat oven to 400. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse bread until fine crumbs form. transfer to a medium bowl, add ground beef and pork. Place onion, garlic, celery, carrots, and parsley in food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add to beef mixture, combine using your hands. Add egg, 1/2 C ketchup, 2 tsp dry mustard, salt and pepper and combine thoroughly using your hands. Place in a loaf pan.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 C ketchup and dry mustard, brown sugar and stir until smooth.
Brush mixture over top of the meatloaf. Place the pan on a baking sheet to catch drippings, and transfer to oven. Bake until a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 160, about 1 and 1/2 hours. If the top of the meatloaf gets too dark, cover with foil and continue baking. Let meatloaf stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
