Add wine; cook 2 minutes or until liquid is almost evaporated. Remove pan from heat. Chop half of mushroom mixture; reserve remaining half of mixture.

  • Place chopped mushroom mixture, breadcrumbs, ketchup, 2 tablespoons mustard, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, beef, and eggs in a medium bowl, stirring to combine. Shape beef mixture into 2 (9- x 4-inch) loaves on a roasting pan or broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Add reserved sliced mushroom mixture and 1 cup stock to pan. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the center of loaves registers 160°F. Remove loaves from pan.

Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon thyme. Cut each meat loaf into 12 slices, and serve with gravy, or follow freezing instructions.
