Rustic French Meatloaf

['1 cup fine fresh bread crumbs (preferably from a rustic loaf)', '1/2 cup whole milk', '3/4 cup finely chopped onion', '3 large garlic cloves, minced', '1 tablespoon olive oil', '1/2 pound chicken livers, separated into lobes, trimmed, and rinsed', '3/4 pound ground pork', '3/4 pound ground veal', '1/4 cup chopped prunes', '1/4 cup shelled pistachios', '2 teaspoons thyme leaves', '2 large eggs, lightly beaten', '1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley', 'Accompaniment: Dijon mustard']

Preheat oven to 475°F with rack in middle.
Soak bread crumbs in milk in a small bowl.
Cook onion, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in oil in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly.
Purée livers in a blender, then transfer to a large bowl. Add pork, veal, prunes, pistachios, thyme, eggs, bread-crumb mixture, onion mixture, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and gently mix with your hands until just combined.
Transfer meatloaf mixture to an 81/2- by 41/2-inch glass loaf pan (see cooks' note, below) and bake, covered with foil, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 165°F, 50 to 55 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes. Cover top of meatloaf with parsley before slicing.
