20101118 Meatloaf

Cold weather calls for comfort food - so I made meatloaf! I had the meatloaf with a simple mashed potato and some mushroom sauce. I just used the mushroom sauce mix, and added some freshly ground black pepper and finely chopped parsley to give it a little more fragrance. My husband didn't like the instant mushroom sauce so he simply mixed the excess fat from the meatloaf with his mashed potato - a typical Dutch man!

250g minced beef
250g minced pork
1 egg
1 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
dash of Worcestershire sauce
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 onion, chopped
handful of fresh basil, finely chopped
handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
some ketchup
2 slices of bacon

1. Heat oven to 175 degree C.
2. In a large bowl, mix everything (except the last two ingredients) together. Place the mixture into an ungreased loaf tin. Lay the 2 slices of bacon and spread some ketchup over the top of the meatloaf.
3. Cook in the oven uncovered for about 1.5 hours. Afterward, let the meatloaf sit for 5 minutes before serving.
