I haven’t made meat loaf in a while and was asked why. So I made Cheesy American Meatloaf. I was going to make cottage pie, so I served it with mash potato instead and grilled zucchini.
1½ kg beef
2 whisked eggs
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 cup milk
10 salticrax ground in the processor
4 tblsp Worcestershire sauce
1 grated onion
2 minced garlic cloves
½ grated red pepper
Fresh parsley (about 3 tblsp)
Salt and fresh pepper
1 tsp Cajun spice
1 tsp rosemary & Olive Spice
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Few slices mozzarella cheese
Few sprigs thyme
Mix everything together (except mozzarella cheese, sliced onion and thyme) and combine. Line a baking tray with foil. Add half the mince mixture and shape with your hands. Add the mozzarella slices and then add the other half of the mince mixture and shape, making sure you sure the cheese is sealed in. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
1 Tblsp Apple cider vinegar
¼ cup BBQ sauce
4 tblsp tomato sauce
1 tblsp Brown sugar
1 tsp Sriracha (Or any hot sauce)
(Whisk everything together)
Pour sauce meat loaf.
Top with sliced onion and thyme.
Bake in a preheated oven at 170C degrees – I have a fan assisted oven – for an hour.
