Preparation steps

For the Meatloaf:
Preheat the oven to 300º F / 150º C. Grease and line 2 lb loaf tin.
Sprinkle the milk over the bread and set aside. Heat the oil in a large pan and gently cook the onions until soft but not brown. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute longer or just until fragrant. Turn off the heat.
Mix the beef, pork, fennel seeds, mustard, egg and wine in a large bowl with the soaked bread and the onion mixture. Add the parsley, thyme and chopped sage, season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Press the mixture into the loaf tin, then arrange the whole sage leaves on top and cover with tin foil. Place the loaf tin in a roasting tin, pour in about 1 1/2 inches of boiling water and place in the oven.
Cook the meatloaf for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Remove tin foil and brush the honey over the surface of the meatloaf. Return to the oven and continue cooking for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the meatloaf comes out clean. Remove the tin from the oven and let it cool, then chill for at least 2 hours.
For the Herb Sauce:
Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor and season with salt and pepper. Serve the meatloaf cold with the herb sauce alongside.
