  • 2 lbs 9LF 100% Fullblood Wagyu Ground Burger
  • 2/3 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2/3 cup panko crumbs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 3 TBS ketchup
  • 1/4 lb gruyere cheese, sliced



  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees

  2. Line the bottom of a 5-inch x 9-inch loaf pan with parchment paper

  3. Place onion, celery, jalapeno, and garlic in food processor and chop until tiny. You want it very small but stop before it turns to total mush.

  4. Drain excess liquid from the vegies. Use a spoon or spatula to press out all the liquid in a small mesh strainer.

  5. Add the vegies to the ground beef in a large mixing bowl.

  6. Add remaining ingredients (except for the gruyere) and mix by hand until well incorporated. My grandma always said to not overmix your meatloaf, or it will be tough. Nobody wants to disappoint grandma.

  7. Place half of the meat mixture in the bottom of the pan and press down firmly with your hands.

  8. Layer the cheese slices evenly over the meat.

  9. Top with remaining meat mixture and press down firmly with your hands to ensure there are no voids or air pockets. Giving the pan a few hard taps on the counter is also helpful.

  10. Bake in oven uncovered for 45-50 min or until meat thermometer reads 160F degrees.

  11. Remove from oven and allow to rest 10 min before slicing and serving.

  12. Prepare to be amazed!
