Meatloaf sort of a la Mary Berry


Carole's Chatter:Meatloaf sort of a la Mary Berry

I noticed a Mary Berry recipe for meatloaf that was quite different from anything I've done before.  This is a link to a version of her recipe on another blog.
Of course I didn't follow it exactly – I didn't have bacon rashers only bacon bits so that affected things.

It turned out ok – maybe a tad bland for our taste – and didn't slice well… but will be worth working on further.

Ingredients:

500g beef mince
1 can of chopped tomatoes (I used about ¾ of it)
1 cup of breadcrumbs (instead of herbed stuffing mix)
½ red onion, chopped
¾ carrot grated
2 Brussel sprouts, sliced (leave out next time?)
No garlic or parsley
1 egg, beaten (next time 2?)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt and black pepper
Bacon pieces

Method:

Preheat your oven to about 200C

Mix everything except the bacon together in a bowl

Line a loaf pan with the bacon – I could only put it in the bottom of the pan and a bit up the sides – no delicate overlapping possible.

Fill the loaf pan with the meat mix – I pushed it in and then put cling film on top and cans on top of that – trying to weight it down.

Turn out into a roasting pan and roast for 1 hour.

I forgot to give it another 15 minutes on a bit higher heat – maybe that would have firmed it up!

The addition of the chopped tomatoes didn't make it too sloppy so I'll be doing that again.

This is what it looked like going into the oven.  Sorry about the quality of the pics – taken with the lights on in the evening – not the best.

  2. Bummer that this came out bland. It looks really good, though.
