Day 18 – Meatloaf

Cue soundtrack and semi-awful-but-you-can’t-help-but-love-it ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ wailing. Yes, meatloaf is the dish of the day. We finally went food shopping. We haven’t been food shopping since around the second week of December – it’s now almost February. The year is going so fast, nearly 20 days of nom already.

So out of habit we picked up mince as I tend to make bolognese a lot. But I’ve already made that this year so in the spirit of new foods and the fact I can’t not stick with it now people know, I had to find a recipe that called for mince. Hence the meatloaf.


900g mince

1 Onion – Grated

1 Tsp Sage

2 Eggs – Beaten

50g Bread Crumbs

240ml milk

Salt and Pepper


In a dish soak the breadcrumbs in the milk. Add the Sage, Salt, Pepper, Onion and Mince. Mix it all up and put in to a loaf-ish shaped dish. It can be topped with Ketchup or Worcestershire Sauce before cooking.

Cook for 40-50 minutes at 180.


How’s that for simple. It also smells amazing. I did make an error with the mince as I only had 500g not 900g. I had every intention of halving all the other ingredients too but it wasn’t until I was putting the mix in to the dish that I remembered. Oops. I think the extra breadcrumbs counteracted the extra fluid so it wasn’t a huge issue.
