• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 medium onion, finely chopped
• 4 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 ½ pounds Impossible Burger, thawed if frozen
• ½ cup ketchup, divided
• ¼ cup Dijon mustard
• ¼ cup prepared horseradish
• 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
• 2 teaspons smoked paprika
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon dried thyme
• ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• ½ cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
• 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
• ¼ cup minced fresh parsley plus more for garnish
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan.
2. In a large skillet set over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the Impossible Burger and cook, breaking up the burger with a spoon, until just crumbly, about 7 minutes. Turn off the heat and spread the burger in an even layer in the prepared pan.
4. In a medium bowl, whisk together ¼ cup of the ketchup, the mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, thyme, pepper, bread crumbs, eggs, and parsley. Spread the ketchup mixture evenly over the burger.
5. Bake in preheated oven until the top is golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 155 degrees Fahrenheit, 40 to 45 minutes.
6. Let cool slightly before slicing and serving. Serve garnished with the reserved ketchup and fresh parsley, if desired. Enjoy!
