How to Cook Lamb Meatloaf

  1. Cut the crusts off the bread and discard. Cut the bread into cubes and place them into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and milk together, then pour over the bread cubes. Set the mixture aside for at least 15 minutes to soften, then mash with a fork until it is well combined.
  2. Meanwhile, quickly cook the bacon lardons in a frying pan over a high heat (about 3-4 minutes) turning all the time. Remove the lardons and set aside. Reduce the heat, peel and chop the onion, and cook gently in the bacon juices for about 8-10 minutes, until soft and transparent. Finely chop the celery
  3. Once the bread, egg and milk has combined, add the Dijon mustard, ¼ teaspoon of salt and a few twists of freshly-ground black pepper. Add the thyme leaves, freshly grated nutmeg, rosemary leaves and chopped parsley. Stir and then add the onion, celery, and lardons. Finally, add the minced lamb, the minced pork and the Worcestershire sauce. Mix well until everything is combined. Chill the mixture for at least two hours (overnight is best).
  4. Once chilled, pack the mixture into a 2lb (8" x 5" - 20cm x 13cm) loaf tin. Place the streaky bacon rashers (slices) on top and cook in a preheated moderate oven (Mk 4 - 350ºF - 180ºC) for about 90 minutes until cooked through (when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean).
  5. Remove from the oven and allow it to stand for five minutes before slicing. Serve hot with Leek and Bacon Platter and Creamed Potatoes or serve cold with Potato and Egg Salad.

If you can't get lardons, just chop 6oz (175g) of smoked bacon into small pieces.

Reviews of Lamb Meatloaf

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again July 31 2014
My wife and I have made this and love it. One thing though, I grew up with my parents cooking in a Mediterranean style and lamb gets oregano. Added, oregano, rosemary, and extra garlic, I think it comes out much better that way.
