Meatloaf, Garlicky Broccoli with Egg Drop Soup :-)

One of my personal favorite meals is meatloaf. When I was younger and my birthday would roll around in my family we could always go to any restaurant we wanted or mom would make you whatever you wanted. I always asked for meatloaf, asparagus, and scalloped potatoes. So near and dear to my heart is meatloaf, or more importantly the meatloaf my mom made. Which isn't that the truth? Those of us that had the good fortune to have a mom that was a good cook generally really like their own "home" version.
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 45-55 minutes
1 tsp olive oil
1 yellow onion , finely diced
2 garlic clove(s), minced
1 pound ground beef
1 cup breadcrumbs, homemade in food processor
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 large egg
1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 packet onion/mushroom dry soup packet
1 packet veggie dry soup packet

[1] Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until soft, 5-6 minutes.
[2] In a large bowl combine onion mixture with all remaining ingredients
