This is a great weekend dish & makes a delicious alternative to a roast!
Serves 4-6 people, approx 72p-£1.05 per person
Prep/Chilling time 40 minutes
Cooking time 1hour 30 minutes
500g minced beef
300g sausage meat
150g fresh breadcrumbs (they can be used straight from the freezer!)
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2tsp mustard (whatever you have)
2tsp dried thyme
You can make this in a 2lb loaf tin or shape the mixture into a loaf shape & place in a roasting tin.
Pre-heat the oven to 160C/Fan 140C/Gas 3.
In a large bowl mix together the mince, sausagemeat, onion, breadcrumbs, thyme & egg-come on get your hands in don't be shy!
Add the Worcestershire sauce, mustard & season with salt & pepper.
Spoon the mixture into the tin (if using) & flatten the top.
Cover the loaf tin with foil & then place into a roasting tin. Put the tins in the oven first, then pour in boiling water ½ way up the sides of the loaf tin (hey-you just made a Bain Marie!).
Cook for 1 hour, remove the foil & cook for a further 30 minutes-this will make the top nice & crusty!
Allow the meatloaf to rest for about 10-15 minutes before removing from the tin.
Slice & serve with mash, peas & gravy.
If you have any leftover allow to cool completely wrap in foil & refridgerate.
I sliced the rest placed on a baking tray & cooked for about 20 minutes at 180C, or you could even have it cold in a sandwich-YUM!
