I made and photographed this when we had just moved and I didn’t have a loaf pan, so you will see how I improvised. By all means, use a normal loaf pan if you have one.
2 slices white bread (I use brown sandwich bread when we have no white, which is most of time.)
1/4 cup or 60ml milk
1 small onion
1 1/2 lbs or 680g ground beef
1/2 lb or 230g ground pork
2 tablespoons horseradish (Or omit if you can’t find any and increase the mustard powder to 2 teaspoons – story of my life)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup or 60ml ketchup
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder (like Coleman’s)
Preheat your oven to 400°F or 200°C.
Rip the bread into rough pieces and, in a small bowl, pour the milk over it, pushing the pieces down into the milk. Soak until all the milk is absorbed.
Chop your onion finely.
Mash the soggy bread with a fork and then add to a large bowl with all of the other ingredients. Mix well.
Tip the lot into a loaf pan or into a piece of foil that you will form into the shape of a loaf pan, inside a larger pan.
Bake for about an hour or until the meatloaf is browned nicely.
Serve along with some rich mashed potatoes, gravy and the vegetable of your choice. I am telling you what, this meatloaf is GOOD!
