Serves: 8
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 3 bacon rashers, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • ½ brown onion, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 5 slices bread
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2¼ lb (1kg) lean ground meat
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 3 tablespoons (50g) tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper
  • Flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the bacon, garlic, and the brown and red onion. Sauté until the onion is soft then set aside to cool.
  3. Cut the bread into cubes, place in a bowl, and pour milk over it. Leave to soak until the milk is absorbed by the bread.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the onion and bacon mixture, the bread mixture, the ground meat, eggs, tomato paste, and salt and pepper and mix well, then add the parsley.
  5. Oil a loaf pan well and spoon the meatloaf mixture into it. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until cooked through. Let it stand to cool for five to ten minutes before slicing.
  6. Garnish freely with fresh flat-leaf parsley and serve immediately with fresh seasonal vegetables or fresh garden salad with relish and chutney on the side.
