Comfort food

when i first came out of the hospital some 3 and 1/2 years ago, after staying there for 2 months, i had something in my taste buds that i wanted to eat.
It could not be found (that i know of) in a restaurant, so i cooked  "Hay Stacks"
I have had a similar taste in my mouth for some time, with a little bit of a twist:
back then i wanted to mix ground lamb and beef and make things more Greek,
Tonight, i am going more Italian.
Tonights reciepe:

Hay Stacks
a meatloaf type dish without the pan

Using various kinds of ground meat, savory vegetables, spices and cheese, a Hay Stack fits your mood;  this is for an Italian Hay Stack
1 lbs Ground beef
1 lbs ground veal
1 lbs ground pork
1 white onion, diced
1 tablespoon of garlic, diced
1 tablespoon basil, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
Options: 1 - 8 oz can of tomato sauce
 

Mix all the ingredients together well, shape them into large, 3" meatballs and place them on a greased baking pan, pressing down to make a flat bottom, but leaving the top rounded.
Cook at 350 F for 1 hour.

The outside will be crispy brown and the inside moist!
