Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Melt the butter and olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, bell peppers, green onions, garlic, Tabasco, Worcestershire and the homemade seasoning mix. Saute until mixture starts sticking excessively, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping the pan bottom well. Stir in the milk and ketchup. Continue cooking for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let the mixture to cool to room temperature.

Place the ground beef and pork in a large bowl. Add the eggs, the cooked vegetable mixture and the bread crumbs. Mix by hand until thoroughly combined. In the center of an ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan, shape the mixture into a loaf that is about 1-1/2 inches high, 6 inches wide and 12 inches long. Bake uncovered at 350° F. for 25 minutes, then raise heat to 400° F. and continue cooking until done, about 35 minutes longer.
