Oven recipe
Meat loaf was a favourite dish when our children were growing up.

Cooking time:       55 minutes
Servings:               4 to 6
 
Ingredients
  • 225 gm minced beef
  • 225 gm sausage meat
  • 1 tbl oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbl of breadcrumbs (two slices)
  • 1 tbl fresh flat parsley chopped
  • ΒΌ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • A pinch of salt
  • A splash or two of Worcester sauce

Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 180oC.
  • Brown the beef with the oil in a large frying pan.
  • Skin the onion and chop it into small pieces.
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix them well together.
  • Line a 2 pint/1100 ml loaf tin with greaseproof paper and press the meat mixture firmly into it.
  • Bake it for one hour above the centre of the oven.
  • Serve with boiled potatoes and peas.
 
Tips
  • Garnish with watercress.
  • Instead of using beef and sausage meat you could use 450 gm of minced beef, but it is a little more expensive.
  • If you cannot use the beef within a day or two of purchase freeze it until you need it.
  • Meat loaf can be sliced and eaten cold for a school lunch box.
