Meat Loaf is a very very popular dish in the USA – not so big here but like everything American it’s making its way across the Pacific.

This is a good basic recipe for a tasty family meat loaf. Serve with a creamy mashed potato and vegetables of your choice.

  • 2 eggs
  • salt & pepper

Combine ingredients in large bowl,mixing well. Place in a greased 1.2 litre loaf tin. Cover with foil and bake at 170C for 1 1/2 hours. Take the foil off in the last few minutes of cooking to brown a little.

Note from Meateaters:

We always recommend using the best meat and the freshest produce. Instead of using dried herbs why not try combining your own fresh concoction: parsley, basil, coriander, rosemary, thyme.

Make your own breadcrumbs by lightly baking bread in the oven and then crumbling.

Add some of your own personality. As long as the basic consistency is the same then you can experiment to your hearts content.

    This is a great meatloaf, love the apple part which I have never seen before and I like the fact that it’s not glazed, gets to sweet for my liking. I didn’t add anything but made a bit of a beefyt gravy, best to always use top quality meat for these sort of things, not the cheap muck.
